Isolation and characterization of cofactor-independent phosphoglycerate mutase gene from maize.

Abstract:

:The isolation and characterization of cofactor-independent phosphoglycerate mutase gene from maize (Zea mays) is here reported. This gene sequence constitutes the first described from this enzyme. The gene spans 5.4 kilo base pairs and has nine exons in the translated region. Canonical TATA and CCAAT and Sp1-like boxes are present upstream of the gene. Comparison with cofactor-dependent phosphoglycerate mutase genes revealed no similarity between both groups of enzymes.
