Can anyone recommend a strong monocot promoter which works in mature (but
not senescing) tissue? We are currently using the rice actin1 and maize
ubiquitin1 promoters which work well in young tissue, but not so well in
mature tissue. Since we are interested in manipulating secondary metabolism,
this is causing us some problems
