In potato plants (Solanum tuberosum), a chimeric yeast-derived invertase gene fused to a 35S cauliflower mosaic virus promoter has been expressed. The protein was targeted to the cell wall by using the signal peptide of proteinase inhibitor II fused to the amino terminus of the yeast invertase. The transformed plants had crinkled leaves, showed a reduced growth rate, and produced fewer tubers. Although in the apoplast of the leaves of the transformed plants the content of glucose and fructose… CONTINUE READING
