Soil salinity is a major environmental stress limiting plant productivity. Vacuole Na+/H+ antiporters play important roles for the survival of plants under salt stress conditions. We have developed salt stress tolerant transgenic tomato plants (Solanum lycopersicum cv. PED) by overexpression of the wheat Na+/H+ antiporter gene TaNHX2 using Agrobacterium tumefaciens strain LBA4404 harbouring a binary vector pBin438 that contains the TaNHX2 gene under the control of double CaMV 35S promoter and… CONTINUE READING
