The expression of the Arabidopsis thaliana PAT1 gene, which encodes the tryptophan biosynthetic enzyme phosphoribosylanthranilate transferase, was investigated using translational fusions of the PAT1 promoter to the GUS reporter gene. Independent stably transformed A. thaliana lines containing a single copy of a fusion that includes the entire plastid transit peptide and the first two introns of PAT1 had on average 30 times more GUS enzyme activity than plants transformed with a construct in… CONTINUE READING
