Compositions, organisms, systems, and methods for expressing a gene product in plants using SCBV expression control sequences operable in monocots and dicots
MetadataShow full item record
The present disclosure relates, in some embodiments, to compositions, organisms, systems, and methods for expressing a gene product in a plant using a expression control sequence (ECS) operable in monocots and/or dicots. For example, (i) an isolated nucleic acid may comprise an ECS (e.g., a sugarcane bacilliform virus promoter) and, optionally, an exogenous nucleic acid (ExNA) operably linked to the ECS; (ii) an expression vector may comprise an ECS; an ExNA; and, optionally, a 3′ termination sequence, wherein the ECS has promoter activity sufficient to express the ExNA in at least one monocot and at least one dicot; (iii) a microorganism, plant cell, or plant may comprise an isolated nucleic acid; (iv) a method for constitutively expressing an ExNA in a plant (e.g., a monocot and/or a dicot) may comprise, contacting an expression vector with the cytosol of a cell of the plant, wherein the expression vector comprises the ExNA and an ECS operable to drive expression of the ExNA; and/or (v) a method of directing constitutive expression of a nucleic acid in a plant (e.g., a monocot and/or a dicot) may comprise transforming the plant with an expression nucleic acid comprising an ECS, an ExNA, and a 3′ termination sequence.
