Abstract

Most known plant disease-resistance genes (R genes) include in their encoded products domains such as a nucleotide-binding site (NBS) or leucine-rich repeats (LRRs). Sequences with unknown function, but encoding these conserved domains, have been defined as resistance gene analogues (RGAs). The conserved motifs within plant NBS domains make it possible to use degenerate primers and PCR to isolate RGAs. We used degenerate primers deduced from conserved motifs in the NBS domain of NBS-LRR resistance proteins to amplify genomic sequences from Lens species. Fragments from approximately 500-850 bp were obtained. The nucleotide sequence analysis of these fragments revealed 32 different RGA sequences in Lens species with a high similarity (up to 91%) to RGAs from other plants. The predicted amino acid sequences showed that lentil sequences contain all the conserved motifs (P-loop, kinase-2, kinase-3a, GLPL, and MHD) present in the majority of other known plant NBS-LRR resistance genes. Phylogenetic analyses grouped the Lens NBS sequences with the Toll and interleukin-1 receptor (TIR) subclass of NBS-LRR genes, as well as with RGA sequences isolated from other legume species. Using inverse PCR on one putative RGA of lentil, we were able to amplify the flanking regions of this sequence, which contained features found in R proteins.
