Transcription factors (TFs) play important roles in plant development and its response to the environment. A variety of reverse genetics tools have been developed to study TF function, the two most commonly used ones being knockout and overexpression. Because of the unique characteristics and modes of action of TFs, the overexpression strategy has been particularly effective in revealing TF function. Thus, a number of overexpression-based methodologies - constitutive expression, tissue-specific… CONTINUE READING
