35s promoter + 5' region
Promoter of cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV), used for constitutive expression in plants. It is fused with the 5' region of the N. benthamiana polyubiquitin gene, which has a high expression rate. It can enhance the expression of the coding region.

Usage and Biology
35s is a strong constitutive promoter derived from cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV). It is widely used in plants to improve the level of the expression of foreign genes effectively in all tissues (1). 5’ region is chosen from the N. benthamiana polyubiquitin sequence (Accession number: Nbv5.1tr6241949). It is used due to its high expression rate in every plant tissue (2). It can help our gene to express itself and ensures that the construction is well expressed. It contains BsmbI and BsaI recognition sites with AATG in 3’ as overhang that allows us to ligate with the amplified target.
Together they work as a promoter that enhances transcription. We ligate it with a target, a linker+luciferase and a terminator to create a gRNA testing system. To check results using this promoter, please see BBa_K2017007.
