Transgenic Sugar Beet Expressing a Bacterial Mannitol-1-Phosphate Dehydrogenase (mtlD) Gene Shows Enhanced Resistance to Fungal Pathogens

Abstract

The E. coli mtlD gene encoding mannitol-1-phosphate dehydrogenase has been shown to be involved in the plant response to abiotic stresses such as salinity, drought and chilling. Nevertheless, in this study transgenic sugar beet lines containing the mtlD gene under control of a stress-inducible rd29A promoter were evaluated for their potential of resistance… (More)
