Cloning of long open reading frames (ORFs) into plant gene expression vectors and transfer of the chimeric expression cassettes into binary vectors is often hampered by the presence of restriction enzyme cleavage sites internal to the open reading frame (ORF) to be expressed. We therefore modified the commonly used expression vector pRT100  and several pGPTV binary vectors  by replacing 6 bp restriction sites with 8 bp sequences recognized by rare-cutter restriction enzymes.
