First results of the GEN-AU pilot project “Fusarium virulence and plant resistance mechanisms” are reported. Employing genetically engineered yeast strains we have been able to clone genes from the model plantArabidopsis thaliana encoding UDP-glucosyltransferases which can inactivate deoxynivalenol (DON) and zearalenone (ZON). The structure of the… CONTINUE READING
