Abstract: Glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransrerase (GPAT)gene is closely relative to the chilling-resistance of piants. We isolated the cDNA encoding the GPAT from Vicia uillosa cotyiedons. The cDNA fragement includes the whole coding region,which contains 1377 base pairs and codes 458 amino acids. Comparing to Vicia faba and pissum satiuum,the cDNA sequece and the deduced amino acid sewuence of Vicia uil-losa GPAT gene habe 94.1% and 93.3%, 96.9%and 98.0% homology respectively.

Key words: Vicia uillosa
