RTBV Vascular Specific Promotor
The Rice Tungro Bacilliform Virus (RTBV) promotor has a vascular expression pattern in plants. This promotor has been added to the registry to facilitate expression of genes into plant vascular tissues.
The RTBV promotor is cloned into the golden gate version of pSB1C3 (P10500) using BsmBI and conforms to the Phytobrick standard. It is flanked by BsaI sites together 5' GAGG and 3' TACT cloning sequences for subsequent cloning into a level 1 plasmid. This allows addition of an 5’ enhancer sequence upstream of any required cloning sequence.
Usage and Biology
This promoter is supposed to cause gene expression only in phloem tissue, as previously documented here. Its original host is the Rice Tungro Bacilliform Virus.
