Modifying transient β-glucuronidase expression in pine species using introns



The effect of introns on gene expression was evaluated. Several intron-promoter combinations were introduced by microparticle bombardment into two pine species, stone pine (Pinus pinea L.) and salgareño pine (Pinus nigra Arn. ssp. Salzmannii (Dunal) Franco). Gene expression was evaluated by measuring transient GUS expression. Two promoters (CaMV35S and double CaMV35S modified) and two introns (intron 1 from maize genes alcohol dehydrogenase-1 and Shrunken-1) were used in our study. In both pine species tested, the Sh1-int1 increased transient GUS expression from 2 to 6-fold compared to the intron-less construction. On the contrary, the inclusion of the Adh1-int1 associated with the double CaMV35S modified resulted in a dramatic decrease in the expression in both pine species analyzed. Our results suggest that Sh1-int1 may be useful for the acquisition of the required levels of genetic activity of new agronomic traits introduced into pines.
