- Two tobacco genes encoding thaumatin-like proteins were cloned and sequenced. Both genes are expressed after infection of tobacco with tobacco mosaic virus (TMV). Comparison of the upstream sequences of these genes with those of other TMV-inducible tobacco genes revealed limited regions of homology.
