A method is presented to facilitate the isolation of mutations in plant genes, which requires knowledge of the target gene or protein sequence, and is independent of mutant phenotype. The polymerase chain reaction was used to amplify the junctions between a T-DNA insert and the gene of interest from pools of mutant plant lines. The approach was used to(More)
Transcriptional activation of the thiostrepton-inducible promoter, ptipA, in Streptomyces lividans is mediated by TipAL. This transcriptional activator belongs to the MerR/SoxR family that characteristically binds an operator sequence located between the -10 and -35 hexamers normally occupied by RNA polymerase. As for the Escherichia coli merT promoter, the(More)
