Photoresponses of transgenic tobacco plants expressing an oat phytochrome gene

  title={Photoresponses of transgenic tobacco plants expressing an oat phytochrome gene},
  author={Alex C. McCormac and Joel R. Cherry and Howard P. Hershey and Richard D Vierstra and Harry Smith},
The physiological responses of transgenic tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) plants that express high levels of an introduced oat (Avena sativa L.) phytochrome (phyA) gene to various light treatments are compared with those of wild-type (WT) plants. Seeds, etiolated seedlings, and light-grown plants from a homozygous transgenic tobacco line (9A4) constructed by Keller et al. (EMBO J, 8, 1005–1012, 1989) were treated with red (R), far-red (FR), or white light (WL) with or without supplemental FR… CONTINUE READING
