Cis-Regulatory Elements Responsible for the Tissue-Specific Expression of the Wheat Cab-1 Gene
Previously the characterisation of plant cells with different functions were based on morphological and physiological studies. Using the methods of molecular biology, i.e. reporter gene systems and plant transformation technology plant cells can be further defined by the genes they express (Edwards and Coruzzi, 1990). Photosyntetic genes such as those encoding the chlorophyll a/b binding protein provide an ideal experimental system to study tissue and cell specific gene expression in plants.
