Determination of Luciferase Activity in Arabidopsis seedling
Authors:  Mohan TC, Gabriel Castrillo and Antonio Leyva, date: 06/20/2014, view: 11842, Q&A: 0
There are different direct and indirect methods available to study gene expression in plant systems. In this protocol we describe a modified expression assay using transgenic plants expressing the luciferase gene under the control of phosphate ...
