Low Temperature Tolerance of Tobacco Plants Transformed to Accumulate Proline, Fructans, or Glycine Betaine. Variable Chlorophyll Fluorescence Evidence

Abstract

Tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) has been transformed to accumulate different compatible solutes (proline, fructans, or glycine betaine) in order to improve its tolerance to abiotic stress. Photosynthetic activity of wild Type (wt) and transformed tobacco plants before and after freezing stress was studied by measuring chlorophyll (Chl) fluorescence. The JIP… (More)
