We will report on the presence of p80 homologs in angiosperms, and consider how well it is conserved between dicots and monocots.
majus, a single gene (the homologs TFL and CEN, respectively) maintains indeterminacy in the terminal meristem (Shannon & Meeks-Wagner, 1991; Bradley et al.
in addition to their potency in apoptosis control, evidenced by the disastrous in vivo consequences of Bcl2 gene translocation into immunoglobulin transcription control sequences, their importance is further underscored by the fact that mammalian viruses appear to have evolved the capacity to manipulate the activities of Bcl-2 family members by expressing their own Bcl-2 homologs.
We have recently shown that Arabidopsis metacaspases, distant homologs of animal caspases, antagonistically control pathogen-triggered HR.
Identification of the rRNA operons was based on similarity to homologs in the NTHI strain 86-028NP genome.

The method teaches to transiently express in susceptible plants large numbers of R-gene homologs or non-host inducible genes isolated from non-host resistant plants.
A limited number of CYP21-specific primers are available; however, the high frequency of gene conversion between the two homologs may prevent amplification of the expected gene or may impair the detection of a CYP21 deletion, which occurs in about one-third of CAH cases [see Wedell (12) for a review on the molecular diagnosis of CAH].
