Additional Information
The 35S promoter was isolated from the Cauliflower Mosaic Virus (CaMV) and is one of the most widely used promoters in plant transformation.

The 35S promoter is a very strong constitutive promoter, resulting in high levels of gene expression in dicot plants. However, it is less effective in monocots, especially in cereals.
