Enhanced quantitative resistance to Leptosphaeria maculans conferred by expression of a novel antimicrobial peptide in canola (Brassica napus L.)


The novel antimicrobial peptide MiAMP1, originally isolated from the seeds of Macadamia integrifolia, was constitutively expressed in transgenic tobacco and canola plants to test its effect on disease resistance. Analysis of plants transformed with 35S-MiAMP1 construct by northern and western blot analyses demonstrated the presence of MiAMP1 mRNA and the… (More)
