In this study, it was shown that the TsVP gene [vacuolar H+-pyrophosphatase (V-H+-PPase) gene from a dicotyledonous halophyte Thellungiella halophila] could be transferred into the monocotyledonous crop maize (Zea mays L.), and that the heterologous expression of the transgene improved the drought resistance of transgenic plants. Polymerase chain reaction amplification and Southern blotting confirmed the existence of the foreign gene in transformed plants and their progeny. Expression… CONTINUE READING
