Transgenic potato overproducing l-ascorbic acid resisted an increase in methylglyoxal under salinity stress via maintaining higher reduced glutathione level and glyoxalase enzyme activity
Salt-tolerance was studied in transgenic potato. It was conferred by overexpression of ascorbate pathway enzyme (d-galacturonic acid reductase, GalUR). As genetic engineering of the GalUR gene inExpand
