Effects of the maize C4 phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (ZmPEPC) gene on nitrogen assimilation in transgenic wheat

Abstract

Nitrogen (N) is the primary limiting factor for crop growth, development, and productivity. Transgenic technology is a straightforward strategy for improving N assimilation in crops. The present study assessed the effects of maize C4 phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (ZmPEPC) gene overexpression on N assimilation in three independent transgenic lines and wild… (More)
