A DON-responsive novel gene and bzip gene

Our studies highlight several new candidate genes involved in the wheat response to both DON and F. graminearum [retrotransposons (Erika LTR and Romani PP), a class III peroxidase (POX), a structure-specific recognition protein (SSRP1) and a basic leucine zipper transcription factor (bZIP)]. While many of the transcripts identified in this research may play a role in combating stress, so far only bZIP any potential link with the inheritance of QTL 3BS and the QTL3BS-associated DON tolerance. bZIP comprises a large family of transcription factors. The closest homologs of the DON responsive bZIP in GenBank are wheat and rice lip19 genes encoding basic leucine zipper proteins.
