A new LOS2 gene was cloned from C. bursa-pastoris by rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE). The full-length cDNA of C. bursa-pastoris LOS2 gene (designated as Cblos2) was 1 694 bp containing a 1 332 bp open reading frame (ORF) encoding a 444 amino acid protein. The predicted CbLOS2 protein contained enolase-N domain, enolase domain, conserved putative DNA-binding and repression domains like LOS2 from A. thaliana. Bioinformatic analysis indicated that CbLOS2 had similarity with other enolase proteins. Cold acclimation assay revealed that Cblos2 expressed constitutively in C. bursa-pastoris and was involved in the cold acclimation process, implying CbLOS2 was a bi-functional enolase.
