Expression of the bacterial gdhA gene encoding a NADPH glutamate dehydrogenase in tobacco affects plant growth and development


We investigated the effects of genetic modification of nitrogen metabolism via the bacterial glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH) on plant growth and metabolism. The gdhA gene from Escherichia coli encoding a NADPH-GDH was expressed in tobacco plants under the control of the 35 S promoter. The specific activity of GDH in gdhA plants was 8-fold of that in E. coli… (More)
