The 35S promoter is frequently used as a constitutive promoter in plant research, primarily Arabidopsis experiments, and has been demonstrated to work in Nicotiana tabacum (Kuluev et al, 2010). This promoter normally drives transcription of the Cauliflower mosaic virus genome and shows no tissue or developmental specificity (Keller et al, 2002). For these reasons, the 2010 Nevada iGEM team modified the 35S promoter to conform to BioBrick standards, providing a reliable constitutive promoter to future iGEM teams wishing to engineer plants.
