Gene duplication is a major mechanism facilitating adaptation to changing environments. From recent genomic analyses, the acquisition of zinc hypertolerance and hyperaccumulation characters discriminating Arabidopsis halleri from its zinc sensitive/non-accumulator closest relatives Arabidopsis lyrata and Arabidopsis thaliana was proposed to rely on(More)
Since their first commercialization, the diversity of taxa and the genetic composition of transgene sequences in genetically modified plants (GMOs) are constantly increasing. To date, the detection of GMOs and derived products is commonly performed by PCR-based methods targeting specific DNA sequences introduced into the host genome. Information available(More)
∆1-Pyrroline-5-carboxylate synthetase (P5CS) is a key enzyme of proline biosynthesis in plants. The Nicotiana plumbaginifolia mutant RNa was previously reported as salt tolerant, overproducing proline, and having reduced feedback inhibition of proline biosynthesis. A mutation in an RNa P5CS gene changing a conserved glutamate codon at position 155 into a(More)
