Xylanases are used in various agricultural and industrial applications. A synthetic, modified, codon-optimized xylanase gene (XynZ) from Clostridium thermocellum was expressed in transgenic tobacco plants. The coding sequence of XynZ was placed between the modified Mirabilis mosaic virus full-length transcript promoter with duplicated enhancer domains and the terminator sequence from the rbcSE9 gene. Three constructs were developed to evaluate XynZ expression levels by targeting gene products… CONTINUE READING
