Technical Abstract: To assess plant molecular control of processes mediating white lupin adaptation to phosphorus (P) stress involving proteoid root formation and organic acid exudation, 1257 expressed sequence tags (ESTs) sere sequenced from a cDNA library made to -P-stressed white lupin roots. Nucleic acid and deduced amino acid analysis of the ESTs showed that 656 were singletons (found only once) and 601 were redundant (found more than once). Based on homology to known proteins, the ESTs were grouped into four main categories: metabolism (34%); cell cycle, plant development (9%); interaction with environment (24%); and unknown (34%). Macro-array experiments are in progress to compare expression of EST under -P and +P conditions in roots and leaves. Expression data will be presented for several genes related to plant growth hormone synthesis.
