Abstract

We have isolated and characterised a cDNA clone encoding the cytosolic form of carbonic anhydrase in the leaves of Flaveria bidentis, a C4 dicotyledonous plant. The deduced amino acid sequence is similar to the carbonic anhydrase found in the chloroplasts of C3 dicotyledonous plants. Western blot analysis of crude leaf extracts of F. bidentis indicates that the leader sequence (equivalent to the transit peptide of the chloroplastic form of CA found in C3 plants) is not removed following translation of mRNA.
