Characterization of a genomic clone for a maize DnaJ-related gene, ZmdJ1, and expression analysis of its promoter in transgenic plants



Characterization of a genomic clone for a maize DnaJ-related gene, ZmdJ1, and expression analysis of its promoter in transgenic plants



Maydica 42(2): 189-201



A novel promoter from maize is described which confers a tissue-general pattern of expression. During a search for novel tissue-specific or constitutively expressed promoters, a clone was recovered which by northern analysis exhibited expression in a variety of maize tissues. Sequence evaluation revealed that this gene has substantial sequence similarity to genes from the DnaJ class of molecular chaperone proteins.
