Lipid transfer protein genes of loblolly pine are members of a complex gene family
A loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) cDNA with properties of a nonspecific lipid transfer protein (nsltp) is reported. In contrast to simple family structures reported for a variety of angiosperm nsltp genes, the putative pine nsltp gene is a member of a complex family.
