The 5′ upstream region of the rice storage protein type II glutelin gene was examined for its regulatory function in transgenic tobacco. Chimeric genes containing 5′ flanking regions of the glutelin gene transcriptionally fused to the β-glucuronidase (GUS) reporter gene were introduced into the tobacco genome by Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated gene… CONTINUE READING
