    Abstract: CYP78A5 promoter was isolated from soybean (Glycine max L. Merrill) plant by using PCR technology. DNA sequence alignment indicated that the amplified fragment (1650bp) was 99.21% homologous to the correspondent regions of the reported sequences. Bioinformatics analysis showed that the GmCYP78A5 promoter contains a lot of inducible or tissue-specif... Show More
