The anther (tapetum)-specific gene BcA9 was isolated from Chinese cabbage, Brassica campestris L. ssp. pekinensis cv. Jangwon, using the Arabidopsis tapetum-specific A9 gene as a probe. The DNA and amino acid sequences of the coding region of the BcA9 gene showed high homology with A9 genes from Arabidopsis and B. napus. However, the DNA sequences of the 5′ noncoding (promoter) region were different, except for the sequence from −281 to −89. To test the specific activity of this promoter, a… CONTINUE READING
