BACKGROUND Germin-like superfamily members are ubiquitously expressed in various plant species and play important roles in plant development and defense. Although several GLPs have been identified in peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.), their roles in development and defense remain unknown. In this research, we study the spatiotemporal expression of AhGLPs in peanut and their functions in plant defense. RESULTS We have identified three new AhGLP members (AhGLP3b, AhGLP5b and AhGLP7b) that have… CONTINUE READING
