The biochemical basis of heat/drought tolerance was investigated by comparing the response of antisense and sense transgenic soybean plants (containing the L-delta1-pyrroline-5-carboxylate reductase gene) with non-transgenic wild-type plants. The plants were subjected to a simultaneous drought and heat stress of 2 days, whereafter they were rewatered at 25(More)
The effect of simultaneous drought and heat stress on free amino acid levels was compared in wild type and transgenic soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr cv Ibis) plants transformed with the cDNA coding for the last enzyme of Pro biosynthesis, l-Delta(1)-pyrroline-5-carboxylate reductase (EC 1.5.1.2), in sense and antisense directions. The most rapid increase in(More)
The effect of drought stress at supraoptimal temperature on free proline and polyamine levels was compared in wild type and transgenic soybean (Glycine max cv. Ibis) plants having increased proline levels. Since glutamate and arginine are precursors of both proline and polyamines, it was assumed that the genetic manipulation of proline levels would also(More)
