Ectopic Expression of Riboflavin-binding Protein Gene TsRfBP Paradoxically Enhances Both Plant Growth and Drought Tolerance in Transgenic Arabidopsis thaliana

Riboflavin is the precursor of the coenzymes flavin monophosphate (FMN) and flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD), which serve as indispensable redox cofactors in all plants. Numerous data indicate that riboflavin is involved in pathogen resistance but less data are available on abiotic stress tolerance. In this experiment, the overexpression of the riboflavin… CONTINUE READING
