Sequence analysis and functional characterization of the promoter of the Picea glauca Cinnamyl Alcohol Dehydrogenase gene in transgenic white spruce plants.

Abstract:

The enzyme Cinnamyl Alcohol Dehydrogenase (CAD) catalyses the last step of lignin monomer synthesis, and is considered as a molecular marker of cell wall lignification in different plants species. Here, we report the isolation and analysis of 5' flanking genomic DNA regions upstream to the CAD gene, from two conifers, i.e. white spruce (Picea glauca (Moench) Voss) and loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.). Sequence comparisons with available CAD gene promoters from angiosperms highlighted the conser...
