    ABSTRACT: A cDNA library with genomic complete coverage is a powerful tool for functional genomic studies. For studying the functions of rice genes on a large scale, a normalized whole-life-cycle cDNA library is constructed based on the strategy of saturation hybridization with genomic DNA using rice cultivar Minghui 63, an elite restorer line for a number of rice hybrids that are widely cultivated in China. This library consists of cDNA from 15 directionally cloned cDNA libraries constructed with different tissues from 9 developmental stages. For normalization, the denatured plasmids purified from the 15 directionally cloned libraries are mixed and hybridized with saturated genomic DNA labeled with magnetic beads in two complementary systems. Well-matched plasmids are captured from the hybridized genomic DNA and electroporated into competent DH10BE. coli for construction of the normalized whole-life-cycle cDNA library. This library consists of 62000 clones with an average insert length about 1.4 kb. Inverse Northern blotting shows that this cDNA library included many rarely expressed genes and tissue-specific genes. Sequencing of 10750 cDNA clones of this library reveals 6399 unique ESTs (expressed sequence tags), indicating that the non-redundancy of the library is about 59.5%. This library has been used to make cDNA microarrays for functional genomic studies. Keywordsrice-normalization-cDNA library-sequencing-cDNA microarrays-whole-life-cycle

    ABSTRACT: Despite large numbers of studies about defense response, processes involved in the resistance of plants to incompatible pathogens are still largely uncharacterized. The objective of this study was to identify genes involved in defense response by cDNA array analysis and to gain knowledge about the functions of the genes involved in defense response. Approximately 20000 rice cDNA clones were arrayed on nylon filters. RNA samples isolated from different rice lines after infection with incompatible strains or isolates of Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae or Pyricularia grisea, respectively, were used to synthesize cDNA as probes for screening the cDNA arrays. A total of 100 differentially expressed unique sequences were identified from 5 pathogen-host combinations. Fifty-three sequences were detected as showing enhanced expression and 47 sequences were detected as showing repressed expression after pathogen infection. Sequence analysis revealed that most of the 100 sequences had various degrees of homology with genes in databases which encode or putatively encode transcription regulating proteins, translation regulating proteins, transport proteins, kinases, metabolic enzymes, and proteins involved in other functions. Most of the genes have not been previously reported as being involved in the disease resistance response in rice. The results from cDNA arrays, reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction, and RNA gel blot analysis suggest that activation or repression of most of these genes might occur commonly in the defense response.
