The gln-δ gene, which encodes the plastid-located glutamine synthetase of Phaseolus vulgaris, was cloned and its promoter region was sequenced. Primer extension analysis was used to map the two major transcription initiation sites which are about 90 nucleotides apart. A fusion of 2.3 kb of the upstream region of the gln-δ gene to the reporter gene uidA… CONTINUE READING
