Comparison of bacterial and plant genes participating in proline biosynthesis with Osmotin gene, with respect to enhancing salinity tolerance of transgenic tobacco plants

Comparison of bacterial and plant genes participating in proline biosynthesis with Osmotin gene,... In an attempt to increase tolerance to salinity stress in tobacco plants, the genes encoding the mutant form of glutamyl kinase (proB), pyrroline-5-carboxylate synthetase, and osmotin were cloned into three different shuttle vectors and were separately introduced into the tobacco plants. The transgenic lines were compared for their ability to produce shoots and grow in MS medium containing 320 mM NaCl; it was shown that the transgenic lines containing genetically handled osmotin gene are more resistant to salinity. The amount of chlorophyll a was used to show continuing growth of plant lines. The results showed that only the tobacco lines transformed with the modified osmotin gene exhibited greater tolerance to salinity. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Plant Physiology Springer Journals
