Expression of a rice CYP81A6 gene confers tolerance to bentazon and sulfonylurea herbicides in both Arabidopsis and tobacco


Bentazon and sulfonylurea are two different classes of herbicides that have been widely used to kill broad-leaf weeds in rice fields. A cytochrome P450 gene, CYP81A6, encoding a monooxygenase has been previously identified to confer resistance to these two classes of herbicides in wild-type rice. In this study, we introduced the rice CYP81A6 gene into… (More)
