Expression of the light-harvesting complex protein genes (Lhc) is under the control of a circadian clock. To dissect the molecular regulatory components of the circadian clock a promoter deletion analysis of four tomato Lhc genes was performed in transgenic tobacco plants. The important 5′-upstream promoter regions are present at different positions relative to the transcription start site of Lhc b11, b12, Lhc a3 and Lhc a4. A short sequence of 47 nucleotides is necessary for conferring… CONTINUE READING
