cDNA clones encoding squalene synthases were isolated from rice, maize and soybeans. A phylogenetic tree showed that the enzymes of monocots and dicots form distinct subgroups. In rice, squalene synthase mRNA was detected in tissues containing dividing cells and its level was repressed by illumination.

Keywords: Maize (Zea mays); mRNA level; Phylogenetic tree; Rice (Oriza sativa); Soybeans (Glycine max); Squalene synthase (EC 2.5.1.21).
