Several genes were isolated by differential display of mRNAs from cucumber leaves inoculated with the bacterium, Pseudomonas syringae pv. lachrymans. A full-length cDNA encoding a novel pathogen-induced gene, Cupi4, was cloned and characterized in detail. While Cupi4 did not share evident homology with known sequences in the database at the nucleotide level, the...
