Grapevine RD22a constitutive expression in tobacco enhances stomatal adjustment and confers drought tolerance

Abstract

Drought is one of the major constraints limiting crop production worldwide including grapevine. Investigations of drought tolerance genotypes by genetic engineering are an important goal in Vitis breeding program. Three dehydration-responsive RD22 genes (VviRD22) were identified in Vitis vinifera L. Here, we aim to evaluate the constitutive expression of… (More)
