Regulation of Gene Expression in Higher Plants

Chen Zhang-liang and Qu Li-jia   

Abstract: The study on regulation of gene expression in higher plants has attracted attention of many scientists and is also one of the major scientific research areas in modern biological studies. With advancement of the technology of genetic engineering, more and more details of gene regulation are revealed and it has been found that regulatory zones of most genes are located at the 5' upstream promoter regions. Now,the study on regulation of gene expression is mainly focused on light regulated genes, tissue specific genes, environmental stress induced genes, bormone-induced genes and so on. This article gives a more or less comprehensive review on the several aspects mentioned above.

Key words: Gene regulation, Cis-element, Trans-acting factor, Deletion, Promoter
