Proline-rich proteins (PRP) are cell wall and plasma membrane-anchored factors involved in cell wall maintenance and its stress-induced fortification. Here we compare the synthesis of P5C as the proline (Pro) precursor in the cytosol and chloroplast by an introduced alien system and evaluate correlation between PRP synthesis and free Pro accumulation in plants. We developed a Pro over-producing system by generating transgenic tobacco plants overexpressing E. coli P5C biosynthetic enzymes; Pro… CONTINUE READING
