Agrobacterium-mediated transformation of monocot and dicot plants using the NCR promoter derived from soybean chlorotic mottle virus

The NCR promoter (PNCR) from soybean chlorotic mottle virus (SoyCMV) was used to express the selectable marker, neomycin phosphotransferase (nptII) gene, in Agrobacterium-mediated transformation of both monocot (rice) and dicot (tobacco) plants. A multi-cloning site for insertion of a gene of interest into the binary vector pTN is located proximal to the right border region of T-DNA. When chimeric genes under the control of other strong promoters were located in a head-to-head orientation to the PNCR-nptII gene, kanamycin-resistant tobacco shoots were generated more efficiently than when using the original pTN vectors. This suggests that the enhancer-like sequences in the promoters adjacent to PNCR may promote expression of the PNCR-nptII gene.
