The apple (Malus domestica) cDNA encoding NADP-dependent sorbitol-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (S6PDH) was stably integrated and expressed in transgenic tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum cv. SR1). Expression of the cDNA in either a sense or antisense orientation was accomplished using cauliflower mosaic virus regulatory sequences (CaMV35S). Sorbitol synthesis was… CONTINUE READING
