5′-Regulatory region of Agrobacterium tumefaciens T-DNA gene 6b directs organ-specific, wound-inducible and auxin-inducible expression in transgenic tobacco


The regulatory activity of a 826 bp DNA fragment located upstream of the pTiBo542 TL-DNA gene 6b coding region was analysed in transgenic tobacco, using β-glucuronidase (gus) as a reporter gene. The region was shown to drive organ-specific, wound- and auxin-inducible expression of the reporter, the effect being dependent on the type and concentration of… (More)
