The present invention relates to a chimeric gene for conferring to plants an increased tolerance to a herbicide.

This chimeric gene comprises, in the direction of transcription, a promoter region, a transit peptide region, a sequence encoding glyphosate tolerance and a polyadenylation signal region, wherein the promoter region consists of at least one promoter of a plant histone gene enabling the expression of the herbicide tolerance protein in the regions of glyphosate accumulation.

The present invention further provides vectors containing the present chimeric genes, as well as plant cells and plants transformed with such vectors which permit production of glyphosate-tolerant plants.
