A glyphosate-tolerant variant of cultured tomato cells (Lycopersicon esculentum × L. peruvianum hybrid) was isolated via a single-step selection. Growth of the variant in suspension culture was essentially unaffected by 10 mM glyphosate, 100 times the concentration needed to significantly reduce the growth rate of wild type cells. When treated with glyphosate, variant cells accumulated much less shikimic acid than did the wild type cells. In analyses of 5-enolpyruvyl-shikimic acid 3-phosphate… CONTINUE READING
