Transcriptional and Posttranscriptional Regulation of Nitrogen-Responding Expression of Phosphoenolpyruvate Carboxylase Gene in Maize.


To study the regulation of gene expression for enzymes in the C4 photosynthetic pathway of maize (Zea mays L.) in response to changing N status in developing photosynthetic cells, we have studied in vitro transcription of the phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEPC) gene in leaf nuclei isolated from plants during recovery from N starvation. The induction was… (More)
