In an organism, be it plant, animal or human, almost every gene has its own promoter sequence, which is typified as a DNA stretch that controls how a gene is expressed in a cell. Hence, the activity of a promoter controls in which cell type, during which developmental stage or during what environmental condition a certain gene is expressed. However, the most widely used promoter in plant biotechnology is actually not derived from a plant, but a pathogenic virus. How and why did that happen… Expand
A short history of plant transformation
TLDR
The 1977 discovery that Agrobacterium tumefaciens inserts a specific piece of DNA into the plant cell genome triggered a race towards the first transgenic plant, which triggered the plant-biotechnology industry and advanced the field of plant science like hardly any other. Expand
Insights obtained using different modules of the cotton uceA1.7 promoter
TLDR
The potential use of the full-length uceA1.7 promoter for the development of new biotechnological tools to achieve higher expression levels of GOIs in, for example, the root or flower bud for the efficient control of phytonematodes and pest-insects, respectively, in important crops is confirmed.

Agrobacterium-mediated transient transformation of sorghum leaves for accelerating functional genomics and genome editing studies
TLDR
An Agrobacterium-mediated transient transformation assay with intact sorghum leaves using green fluorescent protein as marker is reported, providing a good monocot alternative to tobacco and protoplast assays with a direct, native and more reliable system for testing single guide RNA (sgRNA) expression construct efficiency. Expand
Nexus Between Spermidine and Floral Organ Identity and Fruit/Seed Set in Tomato
TLDR
Findings indicate that PAs, particularly Spd, impact floral organ identity and fruit set in tomato involving GA metabolism and signaling and suggest that a nexus exists between PA ratios and developmental programs in plants. Expand

TLDR
A simple, rapid, good-reproducibility, high-efficiency and low-cost transient transformation system in A. annua was developed, avoiding the aberrant phenotypes resulting from gene expression in a heterologous system. Expand
Tissue-specific and stress-inducible promoters establish their suitability for containment of foreign gene(s) expression in transgenic potatoes
TLDR
The results encourage the appropriate use of promoters to drive the expression of foreign gene(s) for the development of potato lines tolerant to biotic and abiotic stress while minimizing the risks of transgenic technology in potatoes. Expand

Duplication of CaMV 35S Promoter Sequences Creates a Strong Enhancer for Plant Genes
TLDR
A variant of the cauliflower mosaic virus 35S promoter with transcriptional activity approximately tenfold higher than that of the natural promoter was constructed by tandem duplication of 250 base pairs of upstream sequences, which should be very useful for obtaining high levels of expression of foreign genes in transgenic plants.

Expression of a bacterial gene in plants by using a viral vector
TLDR
The replacement of CaMV ORF II by the R67 plasmid-encoded dihydrofolate reductase (DHFR) gene; this gene (dhfr) confers resistance to methotrexate in Escherichia coli and can be stably propagated in turnip plants and the dhfr gene is expressed, producing a functional enzyme. Expand
Identification of DNA sequences required for activity of the cauliflower mosaic virus 35S promoter

The effects of 5′ deletions in a plant viral promoter in tobacco callus as well as in regenerated plants, includ ing different plant tissues, are analysed to allow a more direct assessment of deletion effects. Expand
The Cauliflower Mosaic Virus 35S Promoter: Combinatorial Regulation of Transcription in Plants
TLDR
The expression patterns conferred by specific combinations of 35S subdomains differ in tobacco and petunia, indicating that a combinatorial code of cisregulatory elements may be interpreted differently in different species. Expand
Activation tagging in Arabidopsis.
TLDR
Activation tagging using T-DNA vectors that contain multimerized transcriptional enhancers from the cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV) 35S gene has been applied to Arabidopsis plants, and it is shown that overexpressed genes are almost always found immediately adjacent to the inserted CaMV 35S enhancers.

Isolation of an efficient actin promoter for use in rice transformation.
TLDR
Deletion analysis of the Act1 5' intron suggests that the intron-mediated stimulation of GUS expression is associated, in part, with an in vivo requirement for efficient intron splicing. Expand
Multiple cis regulatory elements for maximal expression of the cauliflower mosaic virus 35S promoter in transgenic plants.
TLDR
It is shown that monomers and multimers of a 35S fragment (-209 to -46) can act as enhancers to potentiate transcription from a heterologous promoter. Expand
Genetically modified plants and the 35S promoter: assessing the risks and enhancing the debate.
TLDR
The properties of CaMV and the 35S promoter are discussed and the potential risks associated with the use of the promoter in GM plants are concluded, concluding that any risks are no greater than those encountered in conventional plant breeding. Expand

TLDR
The CaMV DNA synthesis can be partly inhibited both by RNAase and actinomycin D, suggesting the presence of a mixture of RNA- and DNA-templates. Expand
