  • Patent number: 7642346
    Abstract: Novel methods for the expression of non-native genes in flax seeds and the seeds of other plant species are provided. The methods involve the use of seed-specific promoters obtained from flax. Additionally provided are novel flax seed-specific promoters, chimeric nucleic acid constructs comprising novel flax seed-specific promoters, transgenic plant cells, transgenic plants and transgenic plant seeds containing novel flax seed-specific promoters. The promoters and methods are useful, for example, for altering the seed oil and protein composition in flax seed or other plant seeds.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: March 19, 2004
    Date of Patent: January 5, 2010
    Assignees: Sembiosys Genetics Inc., Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO)
    Inventors: Sarita Chaudhary, Gijs Van Rooijen, Maurice M. Moloney, Surinder Singh
