Isolation of cinnamoyl CoA reductase and cinnamyl alcohol dehydrogenase gene promoters from Leucaena leucocephala, a leguminous tree species, and characterization of tissue-specific activity in transgenic tobacco

Abstract

Promoter sequences of a 795 bp cinnamoyl CoA reductase (LlCCR) and 1,882 bp cinnamyl alcohol dehydrogenase (LlCAD) genes were isolated from Leucaena leucocephala, a leguminous tree species by genome walking, and analysed using bioinformatics tools. This revealed presence of cis-elements such as AC-boxes, XYLAT, WRKY, and MYB binding sites in addition to… (More)
