Bhattacharya, Anirban and Sita, Lakshmi G (1998) cDNA cloning and characterization of a proline (or hydroxyproline)-rich protein from Santalum album L. In: Current Science, 75 (7). pp. 697-701.
A proline (or hydroxyproline)-rich cDNA clone, SaPRP, was isolated from sandalwood (Santalum album L.) somatic embryos pretreated with salicylic acid. The longest reading open frame in SaPRP encodes a polypeptide of 326 amino acids. It reveals 48% identity in 233 amino acids overlap with a proline-rich glycoprotein from maize. Southern hybridization with sandalwood genomic DNA digests suggests that SaPRP possibly belongs to a small gene family. Northern blot analysis shows that this SaPRP is expressed predominantly in leaf tissues without salicylic acid induction. The induction of this SaPRP was observed in the somatic embryos treated with salicylic acid.
