Characterization and expression of cold-induced glutathione S-transferase in freezing tolerant Solanum commersonii, sensitive S. tuberosum and their interspecific somatic hybrids.

Abstract

Glutathione S-transferases (GST) form a large family of non-photosynthetic enzymes known to function in detoxification of xenobiotics. We have cloned and characterized a novel, low temperature regulated GST, Solanum commersonii glutathione S-transferase (Scgst1), from a cold acclimated wild potato species S. commersonii and studied the level of its… (More)
