The invention includes an isolated promoter containing nucleotides 1827 through 2147 of SEQ ID NO.: 1. The invention also includes methods of regulating expression of a gene by fusing the isolated promoter to a coding sequence to form a fused construct, and introducing the fused construct into a host such that the promoter regulates the expression of the gene product within the host. The invention additionally includes a recombinant gene comprising an isolated promoter containing at least nucleotides 1827 through 2147 of SEQ ID NO.: 1, operably linked to a coding region encoding a gene product of interest. The invention includes a host cell containing the recombinant gene.
