White clover (Trifolium repens L.) is an important pasture legume in many regions of the world. A commercial cultivar of white clover (cv. Patriot) was transformed with aMedicago truncatula L. transcription factor gene,WXP1, and a reporter gene, b-glucuronidase (GUS). The WXP1 gene and the GUS gene were placed under control of the Arabidopsis CER6 promoter. GUS staining and cross-section analysis revealed the CER6 promoter directed constitutive expression in leaves and epidermis preferential… CONTINUE READING
