Gene : MLO8 A. thaliana

DB identifier  ? AT2G17480 Secondary Identifier  ? locus:2053888
Name  ? MILDEW RESISTANCE LOCUS O 8 Brief Description  Seven transmembrane MLO family protein
TAIR Computational Description  Seven transmembrane MLO family protein;(source:Araport11)
TAIR Curator Summary  A member of a large family of seven-transmembrane domain proteins specific to plants, homologs of the barley mildew resistance locus o (MLO) protein. The Arabidopsis genome contains 15 genes encoding MLO proteins, with localization in plasma membrane. Phylogenetic analysis revealed four clades of closely-related AtMLO genes. ATMLO8 belongs to the clade III, with AtMLO5, AtMLO7, AtMLO9, and AtMLO10. The gene is expressed during seedling growth, in cotyledons and hypocotyl, and in fruit abscission zone, as shown by GUS activity patterns. The expression of several phylogenetically closely-related AtMLO genes showed similar or overlapping tissue specificity and analogous responsiveness to external stimuli, suggesting functional redundancy, co-function, or antagonistic function(s).
