Overexpression of IbP5CR enhances salt tolerance in transgenic sweetpotato


Pyrroline-5-carboxylate reductase (P5CR) lies at the converging point of the glutamate and ornithine pathways and is the last and critical enzyme in proline biosynthesis. In the present study, a P5CR gene, named IbP5CR, was isolated from salt-tolerant sweetpotato line ND98. Expression of IbP5CR was up-regulated in sweetpotato under salt stress. The IbP5CR… (More)
