Granule-Bound Starch Synthase-I gene neighborhood. On fosmid 52I20, the targeted GBSSI gene resides at gene site 7. It has partial, top-tier F-EST coverage. Gene sites 6a and 6b ostensibly encode distinctly different proteins; yet the stop codon of 6b and the start codon of 6a could not be determined, and a bridging, top-tier F-EST [GenBank: DY672167] seems to tie 6a and 6b together transcriptionally (see boxed EST in 6a-6b region, Fig. 7). Interestingly, the Arabidopsis homologs of genes 6a and 6b are colinear with them (Table 3). The 60S ribosomal protein (RPP1C) gene at site 8 has complete, top-tier F-EST coverage, and was modeled.
