Promoter studies have revealed that sequences related to the GT-1 binding site, known as GT elements, are conserved in plant nuclear genes of diverse functions. In this work, we addressed the issue of whether GT elements are involved in cell type-specific transcriptional regulation. We found that the inactivation of GT-1 site-mediated transcription in roots is correlated with the absence of the GT-1 binding activity in root extracts. In addition, the mutation of the related GT-1 (from the pea… CONTINUE READING
