Abstract

A chimaeric gene, consisting of the 5′-flanking region of a member of the Pisum sativum gene family encoding ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase linked to the coding region of a bacterial chloramphenicol acetyltransferase gene, has been introduced into the genome of the plant Nicotiana tabacum using a Ti plasmid of Agrobacterium tumefaciens. The expression of the chimaeric gene is light-inducible in chloroplast-containing transformed tissue.
