A large genetic variability was observed in the shoot NO(3) (-) content of recombinant inbred lines (RILs) of Lotus japonicus. To determine the cause of this variability, we have studied some aspects of nitrate uptake and assimilation in the two parental ecotypes (Gifu and Funakura) and four representatives of the RILs population differing both in their shoot biomass and shoot NO(3) (-) content. Higher shoot NO(3) (-)content was mainly due to an increase in the uptake of the ion regardless of… CONTINUE READING
