Tissue Specific Activity of Arabidopsis Thaliana Plastocyanin and Ferredoxin Promoter Elements in Transgenic Tobacco Plants
Plastocyanin (PC) and ferredoxin (FD) are two nuclear-encoded chloroplast proteins which are functional in photosynthetic electron transport. In higher plants the expression of the PC and FD genes is light controlled, most likely by a phytochrome-dependent mechanism (1, 2). In addition, expression of these genes is mostly confined to green tissue.
