Overexpression of the acidic C-terminus region of the HvRAF from barley confers enhanced cadmium tolerance to yeast.

The barley ERF-type transcription factor, HvRAF, has an acidic C-terminus domain containing hemopexin domain signature-like sequence. As an initial study to investigate the function of the C-terminus domain in HvRAF, we cloned the partial HvRAF gene (pHvRAF) corresponding to the C-terminus domain into the yeast/E.coli shuttle vector, pYES2, and then introduced the pYES2::pHvRAF recombinant plasmid into yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae strain INVSc1). Yeast transformants harboring pYES2::pHvRAF showed significant tolerance to cadmium stress.
