Figure 6. Chimeric PMEU1 promoter constructs and average of GUS activity in the transgenic tobacco plants.

A. The chimeric constructs used in plant transformation. Numbers below the shadowed bar are indicating the size of the pmeu1 promoter in each construct. Arrow is indicating the translation start site for the pmeu1 transcribed region. 

B. Average of GUS activity from leaf of about 50 tobacco transgenic plants analyzed. Shown are the average and standard deviation values. Differences in GUS activity levels among all three constructs were statistically significant (p<0.05).
