Differential protection of photosynthetic capacity in trehalose-and lea protein-producing transgenic plants under abiotic stresses

Abstract

We previously demonstrated that both trehalose and LEA protein protect plants from damage by drought, salt, and heat. Here, we compared their effectiveness in preserving photosynthetic capacity under those abiotic stresses. Upon dehydration, the Pmax (maximal photosynthetic rate) of O2 evolution decreased similarly in both nontransformants andotsA plants… (More)
