About this book

Written by international experts in the field from North America, New Zealand, Europe and Japan it covers a rapidly developing area of plant molecular biological research and reviews and analyses the latest information in the field, whilst looking at future developments in this area.

Contents

Inducible control of gene expression - an overview; use of the TN10-encoded tetracycline repressor to the control gene expression; ecdysteroid agonist-inducible control of gene expression in plants; glucocorticoid-inducible gene expression in plants; tissue-specific, copper-controllable gene expression in plants; nitrate inducibility of gene expression using the nitrate reductase gene promoter; use of heat shock promoters to control gene expression in plants; wound-inducible genes in plants; developmental targeting of gene expression by the use of a senescence-specific promoter; abscisic acid-inducible promoter switches in the control of gene expression; potential use of hormone responsive elements to control gene expression in plants.

Media reviews

"Contributions by plant geneticists, biochemists, agrochemists, biologists, botanists, and other researchers from North America, New Zealand, Europe, and Japan address a wide range of promoter systems which have been developed to obtain external, inducible control of gene expression in plants. Eleven chapters survey systems currently in use, evaluating their strengths and weaknesses, and assess new information and potential future research developments."--SciTech Book News
