Genes coding for sporamin, the most abundant protein of the tuberous root of the sweet potato, are expressed at a high levels in the stems of plantlets cultured axenically on sucrose-containing medium. Their expression is also induced in leaf-petiole explants by high concentrations of sucrose. A fusion gene comprising of the 1 kb 5′ upstream region of the gSPO-Al gene coding for the A-type sporamin and the coding sequence of bacterial β-glucuronidase (GUS) was introduced into the tobacco genome… CONTINUE READING
