The maize transcription factor EREB58 mediates the jasmonate-induced production of sesquiterpene volatiles.
Over the past two decades, Zea mays (maize) has been established as a model system for the study of indirect plant defense against herbivores. When attacked by lepidopteran larvae, maize leaves emitExpand

Acquiring transgenic tobacco plants with insect resistance and glyphosate tolerance by fusion gene transformation
AbstractThe advantages of gene ‘stacking’ or ‘pyramiding’ are obvious in genetically modified (GM) crops, and several different multi-transgene-stacking methods are available. Using linker peptidesExpand
