Effects of drought and heat stress on polyamine metabolism in wild type and transgenic tobacco plants

Submitted by Milena Cvikrová on Tue, 02/13/2018 - 16:27


The aim of the project was to elucidate the role of proline and polyamines, metabolites with the crucial protective functions, in the stress response of tobacco plants to high temperature and drought.

Characterization of defence response in wild plants and in transgenic plants with modified P5CS gene (P5CSF129A), which codes for the key enzyme of proline biosynthesis, contributed to understanding of the function of these protective elements in plant abiotic stress tolerance.
