Identification, cloning and characterization of a novel Gossypium hirsutum L. GhMYBantiV transcription factor in response to biotic and abiotic stresses

Published on

Verticillium wilt is an important worldwide limiting factor
for cotton production. Improving cotton varieties’ disease
resistance, is of great strategic and practical importance
to promote world cotton production and to improve cotton
fibre quality. Taking advantage of the Gossypium raimondii
genome sequence, we cloned a new MYB transcription
factor GhMYBantiV (GenBank accession number:
KM0407832) from upland cotton variety Lumianyan 32.
Characteristic analysis indicates that GhMYBantiV is a MYB
transcription factor, since it localises in the nucleus, and
shows the transcription factor activity. GhMYBantiV
expression is greatly enhanced by Verticillium wilt fungus
infection and salt treatment. It is, therefore, suggested that
GhMYBantiV possibly plays an important role in biotic and
abiotic stress response in cotton.
