CambiaLabs IP – Megagametophyte-specific Transcriptional Control Elements and Uses Thereof

Transcriptional control elements specific for megagametophytes are provided. More specifically, a nucleotide region that confers specificity of expression is described. This region, an enhancer, may be used to control expression of a toxin gene to generate female-sterile transgenic plants, or to promote expression of an embryogenesis gene to allow apomixis. Published as WO 01/21785.
