Arabidopsis thaliana thylakoid lumen 18.3 protein gene is up-regulated during dehydration

Selaginella tarmariscina is a resurrection plant and we have cloned several genes for dehydration in S. tarmariscina through differential display. One of the gene (DQ471954) which has 68% homology with Arabidopsis thaliana thylakoid lumen 18.3 kDa protein (TLP18.3) gene. This gene has a domain of unknown function (DUF477) which is a family of uncharacterized protein. The expression...
