(Received April 1, 2005; Accepted May 31, 2005)
The rice genome contains at least 28 EXPA (-expansin)
genes. We have obtained near full-length cDNAs from
the previously uncharacterized genes. Analysis of these
newly identified clones together with the 12 identified
earlier showed that the EXPA genes contain up to two
introns and encode proteins of 240 to 291 amino acid
