Notes

Abstract: 3-Hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase (HMGR) catalyzes a key step in isoprenoid metabolism leading to a range of compounds that are important for the growth, development and health of the plant. We have isolated 7 classes of genomic clones encoding HMGR from a potato genomic library. Comparison of nucleic acid sequences reveals a high degree of identity between all seven classes of clones and the potato hmg 1 gene described by Choi et al. (Plant Cell 4: 1333, 1992), indicating that all are members of the same subfamily in potato. A representative member (hmg 1.2) of the most abundant class of genomic clones was selected for further characterization. Transgenic tobacco and potato containing the β-glucuronidase (GUS) reporter gene under the control of the hmg 1.2 promoter expressed GUS activity constitutively at a low level in many plant tissues. High levels of GUS activity were observed only in the pollen. GUS assays of isolated pollen, correlations of GUS activity with the HMGR activity of anthers, hmg 1.2 promoter deletion studies, and segregation analysis of the expression of hmg 1.2::GUS among the R₂ pollen of R₁ progeny plants demonstrated that the hmg 1.2 promoter controls pollen expression.
