Table 4 Drought genes in hybrid PR-24 lacking variants found in Q. engelmannii, as candidates for genes involved in local adaptation to warm or dry habitats

From: Assessment of shared alleles in drought-associated candidate genes among southern California white oak species (Quercus sect. Quercus)

Gene (transcriptome contig) Biallelic variants engelmannii-fixed variants Variants with no engelmannii allele in hybrid PR-24 % Identity to Arabidopsis protein Uniprot Protein Description Gene Uniprot Function Description
m01oak09012cC 61 47 6 80% 4-coumarate--CoA ligase-like 7 4CLL7 Contributes to jasmonic acid biosynthesis by initiating the beta-oxidative chain shortening of its precursors.
m01oak03358CC 56 24 5 81% 4-coumarate--CoA ligase 1 4CL1 Produces CoA thioesters of a variety of hydroxy- and methoxy-substituted cinnamic acids, which are used to synthesize several phenylpropanoid-derived compounds, including anthocyanins, flavonoids, isoflavonoids, coumarins, lignin, suberin and wall-bound phenolics
m01oak00399CT 12 9 1 63% Glutathione S-transferase F7 GSTF7 May be involved in the conjugation of reduced glutathione to a wide number of exogenous and endogenous hydrophobic electrophiles and have a detoxification role against certain herbicides (also possible response to salt stress)
