Three cDNA clones coding for Medicago sativa Rop GTPases have been isolated. The represented genes could be assigned to various linkage groups by genetic mapping. They were expressed in all investigated plant organs, although at different level. Relative gene expression patterns in response to Sinorhizobium infection of roots as well as during somatic embryogenesis indicated their differential participation in these processes. DNA sequences coding for altogether six different Medicago sp. Rop GTPases could be identified in sequence databases. Based on their homology to each other and to their Arabidopsis counterparts, a unified nomenclature is suggested for Medicago Rop GTPases.
