Title: SPIKE TISSUE-SPECIFIC PROMOTER
Abstract:
A spike tissue-specific promoter has been isolated, sequenced and tested. The promoter can be used to make gene constructs including a protein-coding sequence not natively associated with the promoter and a sufficient portion of the promoter such that the portion actuates the preferential expression of the protein-coding sequence in the spike tissue of cereal grain plants.
