080075: An Arabidopsis Gene Involved in the Conversion of Aldehydes to Alkanes in Arabidopsis Leaf Wax

Epicuticular wax layers of plants mainly consist of long straight-chain aliphatic hydrocarbons with a variety of substituted groups. Plant waxes have many functions, including increasing plant resistance to biotic stress (e.g., pathogens) and abiotic stress (e.g., temperature changes, drought). Additionally, since wax components have a high cal...

000006: Plant Seed Specific Promoters

Constitutive promoters, such as the CaMV 35S promoter, are commonly used for producing transgenic plants. However, constitutive promoters offer very little expression control, and cause their products to be expressed throughout the entire life of the plant and ubiquitously in tissues of transgenic plants. This effect is often harmful to the he...
