A novel chemical induction system for transcription in plants has been developed, taking advantage of the regulatory mechanism of vertebrate steroid hormone receptors. A chimeric transcription of the DNA-binding domain of the yeast transcription factor GAL4, the transactivating domain of the herpes viral protein VP16, and the receptor domain of the rat glucocorticoid receptor (GR). The GVG gene was introduced into transgenic tobacco and Arabidopsis together with a luciferase (Luc) gene which… CONTINUE READING
