Three cis-elements required for rice α-amylase Amy3D expression during sugar starvation

Three cis-elements required for rice α-amylase Amy3D expression during sugar starvation Expression of α-amylase genes during seedling development plays a key role in production of sugar from the starch stored in the cereal seed. Rice α-amylase Amy3D promoter/GUS constructs in transgenic rice cell lines were studied to identify cis elements in the promoter of this metabolite-regulated gene. Three sequences having the greatest effects on Amy3D gene expression included the amylase element (TATCCAT), the CGACG element, and a G box-related element (CTACGTGGCCA). These promoter cis elements are needed for high-level expression of Amy3D under conditions of sugar starvation. The involvement of G box cis-elements in environmental stress responses suggest a link between the nutrient stress and the environmental stress responses of the plant.
