Abstract:

Seed and pod development is one of the important stages affecting the yield potential of a plant. Number of seeds per pod and pod length are some important yield attribute. Cajanus cajan has immense diversity in term of these traits. LEA (late embryogenesis abundant) gene family members are known to accumulate in seed and pod during several stresses and seed development. In this study we have tried to find out total number of LEA genes present in Cajanus cajan, and their phylogenetic analysis to search for the structural homologs. In this study also tried to build the heat map showing the expression level of these genes. It was found that some of the LEA gene family members viz C.cajan_17192, C.cajan_21717, C.cajan_37355, C.cajan_43531, C.cajan_ 10424, C.cajan_10963, C.cajan_03928, C.cajan_20859, C.cajan_31323, C.cajan_06188, C.cajan_14597, C.cajan_35463, C.cajan_09914, C.cajan_ 09556, C.cajan_29204, C.cajan_04295, C.cajan_45355, C.cajan_00461 and C.cajan_21796 were showing up regulation in reproductive mature seeds and pods. These LEA gene members may play important role in seed and pod development in pigeonpea.
