...... be found in the databases of several monocot and dicot plants. Blot analyses of RNA from M. truncatula, maize, tomato and tobacco demonstrate preferential expression of DXS1 genes in many developing plant tissues except roots. By contrast, DXS2 transcript levels are low in most tissues but are strongly stimulated in roots upon colonization by mycorrhizal fungi, correlated with accumulation of carotenoids and apocarotenoids. Monoterpene-synthesizing gland cells of leaf trichomes ......
