We have cloned and sequenced the promoter of a meiotin-1 gene, and have determined the precise temporal and spatial pattern of meiotin-1 gene expression. The expression of the meiotin-1 gene is controlled in two increments. The meiotin-1 gene is not expressed in any of the vegetative tissues examined. Early in microsporogenesis, low levels of meiotin-1 RNA can be detected. At the onset of meiosis, there is a dramatic increase in meiotin-1 RNA levels in both tapetal and meiotic cells.
