Cinnamyl alcohol dehydrogenase (CAD; EC 1.1.1.195) catalyses the last step in the synthesis of the monomeric precursors of lignin. Here, we demonstrate that the vascular expression pattern conferred by the Eucalyptus gunnii EgCAD2 promoter in transgenic poplar (Populus tremula × Populus alba) is conserved in another perennial woody angiosperm of economic interest (Vitis vinifera L.), as well as in a model herbaceous plant (Nicotiana tabacum L.). Furthermore, promoter deletion analysis performed… CONTINUE READING
