- Abstract


    Os-GRF1 (Oryza sativa-GROWTH-REGULATING FACTOR1)


was identified in a search for genes that are differentially


expressed in deepwater rice (Oryza sativa L.) internodes in


response to gibberellin (Van der Knaap et al., 2000). Os-GRF1


has two regions displaying general features of transcription


regulators, and contains a functional nuclear localization


signal. One of those two regions, named as QLQ domain, is


similar to a protein interaction domain of SWI2/SNF2, which


is a subunit of a chromatin-remodeling complex in yeast.


The other domain, WRC, is novel and found only in plant


proteins of unknown function. To study its role in plant


growth, Os-GRF1 was expressed in Arabidopsis. Bolting of


inflorescence stem of transformed plants was severely


inhibited, indicating that Os-GRF1 may play a regulatory


role in stem elongation.


In Arabidopsis thaliana, we have identified nine homologues


of Os-GRF1, named as GRL1 (GRF1-like) through GRL9. At-GRL


proteins show the same characteristic features, including


the highly conserved QLQ and WRC domains as does OsGRF1.


RNA gel blot and promoter::GUS fusion analyses show that


GRLs are highly expressed in the shoot tips, flowers, and


roots.


To determine the function of GRLs, we have identified T-DNA


insertional mutants for GRL1 through GRL3. However, we did


not observed a phenotype for those knock-out mutants under


different growing conditions and at different developmental


stages.


    


Apart from the reverse genetic approach, we are going


'forward' back again !
