Regulatory sequences with endosperm specificity are essential for foreign gene expression in the desired tissue for both grain quality improvement and molecular pharming. In this study, promoters of seed storage α-kafirin genes coupled with signal sequence (ss) were isolated from Sorghum bicolor L. Moench genomic DNA by PCR. The α-kafirin promoter (α-kaf)(More)
Cereal grains offer great potential as a storage system for production of highly valuable proteins using biotechnological approaches, but such applications require tight temporal and spatial control of transgene expression. Towards this aim, we have undertaken a detailed analysis of α-kafirin (α-kaf) promoter and α-kaf signal peptide (sp) in transgenic(More)
The gene encoding the α-amylase from Bacillus licheniformis was cloned, with and without the native signal sequence, and expressed in Escherichia coli, resulting in the production of the recombinant protein in the cytoplasm as insoluble but enzymatically active aggregates. Expression with a low concentration of the inducer at low temperature resulted in the(More)
