  • Publication number: 20110321191
    Abstract: A gene expression system for controllable expression of ethylene response in a plant cell includes an activation cassette comprising a DNA-binding domain that recognizes a response element; an ecdysone receptor ligand binding domain; and an activation domain; and a target cassette comprising an inducible promoter, which comprises, in operative association, the response element and a minimal promoter responsive to the activation domain. The inducible promoter controls the expression of a nucleic acid sequence that encodes a selected regulatory protein that modifies sensitivity to ethylene of certain signal proteins in the plant. Interaction among the components of the activation cassette and target cassette, when in a plant cell, in the presence of an inducing composition, increases expression of the selected regulatory protein, and in turn decreases expression and accumulation of the signal protein in the plant, thereby and decreasing ethylene sensitivity in the plant cell.
