Functional analysis of the regulatory region of a zein gene in transiently transformed protoplasts


The transcription of zein genes in maize is tissue-specific and developmentally regulated. The 5′ regulatory region of many zein genes contains two promoters, P1 and P2, lying approximately 1000 bases apart. The promoter/enhancer activity of various fragments of the two promoter regions of the zein gene E19 have been analysed by means of transient… (More)
