Commelina yellow mottle virus (CoYMV) is a double-stranded DNA virus that infects a monocot host. A promoter fragment isolated from CoYMV is a strong promoter when assayed after transient introduction into monocot and dicot suspension cells and is highly active in vascular cells of flowers, leaves, stems and roots of stably transformed tobacco plants. Here it is reported that in stably transformed maize calli and transgenic tobacco leaves the CoYMV and CaMV 35S promoters exhibit similar amounts… CONTINUE READING
