Arabidopsis plants transformed by promoter of A. thaliana serine racemase fused with β-glucuronidase (GUS) reporter gene showed strong GUS staining in elongating and developing cells such as tip regions of primary and lateral roots, developing leaves, and shoot meristems. RT-PCR and digital northern hybridization showed that expression of the serine racemase gene was not induced by l- and d-serine, light irradiation, biotic and abiotic stresses.
