Development of transgenic tobacco plants overexpressing maize glutathione S-transferase I for chloroacetanilide herbicides phytoremediation.

Abstract

Glutathione S-transferases (GSTs, EC 2.5.1.18) are a multigene family of detoxification enzymes that biotransform a wide variety of endogenous and exogenous electrophilic substrates, including herbicides. The isozyme GST I from maize exhibits significant catalytic activity for the chloroacetanilide herbicide alachlor and appears to be involved in its… (More)
