Expression of the late embryogenesis abundant (LEA) gene is usually associated with plant response to dehydration. In this study, a drought-tolerant genotype was screened from 48 accessions of Tibetan hulless barley (Hordeum vulgare ssp. vulgare). By using virus-induced gene silencing, the influence of two LEA genes (HVA1 and Dhn6) on drought tolerance of Tibetan hulless barley was investigated. Results of quantitative real-time PCR indicated that the relative expression levels of HVA1 and Dhn6… Expand
