The beta-glucuronidase (GUS) gene linked to the promoter of rice light harvesting chlorophyll a/b-binding protein of photosystem II (LHCPII) was introduced into rice by electroporation. Expression of the GUS gene with the LHCP promoter in transformed protoplasts and callus was much lower than with the cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV) 35S promoter. In green… CONTINUE READING
