A nitrate reductase (NR) deficient mutant of Nicotiana plumbaginifolia totally impaired in the production of functional nia transcript and protein was restored for NR activity by transformation with a cloned tomato nia gene. The transgenic plants expressed from undetectable to 17% of the control NR activity in their leaves. Restoration of growth rates comparable to the wild type was obtained for transgenic plants expressing as little as 10% of the wild-type activity showing that nitrate… CONTINUE READING
