Cloning and Characterization of Protein Phosphatase 2C (PP2C) like Promoter from Arabidopsis Thaliana

Purva Bhalothia, Sandhya Mehrotra, and Rajesh Mehrotra
Abstract—PP2C is a negative regulator of ABA dependent abiotic stress pathway. Genome wide analysis of Arabidopsis thaliana revealed that PP2C like promoter (AT5G59220) has both biotic and abiotic responsive cis elements in the upstream of the TATA box. In this study, full length and deletion variants of PP2C like promoter were cloned upstream of the egfp reporter gene and bombarded on to the tobacco leaves. The -400 bp deleted construct showed maximal expression of the reporter gene.

Index Terms—ABA, cis elements, EGFP, PP2C
