Unlike xylem, which is primarily composed of dead cells in vascular bundles, phloem has living cells. It transports organic nutrients and long-distance communication signals to all parts of plants. In this report, we describe a promoter from Populus trichocarpa that drives strong gene expression in a phloem tissue-specific manner. First, we identified five… CONTINUE READING
