Transcriptional expression of a Solanum sogarandium pGT::Dhn10 gene fusion in cucumber, and its correlation with chilling tolerance in transgenic seedlings.

The expression pattern of a Solanum sogarandinum pGT::Dhn10 gene fusion encoding a dehydrin DHN10 protein and the potential role of that protein in cold tolerance in cucumber were analysed in three T1transgenic lines. An accumulation of Dhn10 mRNA was detected in the leaves, cotyledons, hypocotyls and roots of the transgenic seedlings both under the control… CONTINUE READING
