The objective of this study was to evaluate the performance of transgenic canola (Brassica napus) plants over-expressing a wheat mitochondrial Mn superoxide dismutase (Mn SOD3.1) subjected to environmental stresses in the field and in controlled environments. Mn SOD3.1 was regulated by either CaMV 35S or Arabidopsis COR78 promoters. RT-PCR and a SOD enzyme… CONTINUE READING
