Title: SEED-PREFERENTIAL PROMOTERS AND USES THEREOF
Abstract:
The present invention relates to Brassica sequences comprising seed-preferential promoter activity. Provided are recombinant genes comprising the seed-preferential promoter operably linked to a heterologous nucleic acid sequence, and cells, plants and seeds comprising the recombinant gene. The promoters can be used to alter gene expression specifically in the seeds and at a specific seed developmental stage and to alter biotic or abiotic stress tolerance, yield or seed quality.
