Effects of plant hormones on a sulfur-deficiency responsive element (betaSR) from the promoter region of the beta subunit gene of beta-conglycinin, a major seed storage protein of soybean, were investigated using transgenic Arabidopsis thaliana. Among the hormones tested, the cytokinins, trans-zeatin (Z) and trans-zeatin riboside, upregulated gene expression directed by the betaSR element both in the presence and in the absence of sulfate in the medium. Z also increased transcript accumulation… CONTINUE READING
