Jasmonate (JA) is a critical hormone for both plant defense and reproductive development. Until now, early JA-responsive promoters have not been well characterized. To identify the cis-acting DNA element involved in the early JA response at the transcriptional level, we analyzed the promoter of the Arabidopsis gene encoding jasmonate-ZIM domain2 protein (JAZ2). The full-length JAZ2 promoter in JAZ2::GUS plants is active in vegetative and reproductive tissue, with expression in stamen filaments… CONTINUE READING
