irteen glutamate receptor-like genes have recently been identi ed in tomato plants; however, their functions have not been fully elucidated. We overexpressed SlGLR1.1 and SlGLR3.5 in Arabidopsis and found that transgenic plants showed symptoms such as curled and deformed leaves, dwarf stature and retarded growth resembling those of Ca2+ de ciency. e results revealed that the levels of Ca2+ in aerial tissues did not di er between wild-type and transgenic plants, suggesting that overexpression of… CONTINUE READING
