TM2, a new matrix attachment region (MAR) isolated from tobacco, increases transgene expression in plants. We have carried out a more detailed analysis of the DNA elements in TM2 with the aim of improving its effect on transcription activation. Our study of the location effect of individual MARs on the expression of the adjacent 35S:gusA cassette indicated that the TM2 functions in a bidirectional manner, with the 5′-MAR being more efficient in enhancing β-glucuronidase expression than the 3… CONTINUE READING
