patent number 6514760
The present invention relates to the isolation and identification of a JOINTLESS gene from a tomato plant (genus Lycopersicon). More specifically, the invention relates to novel nucleic acid molecules isolated from a tomato plant, proteins encoded by such nucleic acid molecules, and antibodies raised against such proteins. The present invention is also directed to a nucleic acid homolog of a JOINTLESS gene and a method to identify a homolog in plants other than tomato.
