Assessing utilization and environmental risks of important genes in plant abiotic stress tolerance

Khan, Mohammad S; Khan, Muhammad A; Ahmad, Dawood

Description

Transgenic plants with improved salt and drought stress tolerance have been developed with a large number of abiotic stress-related genes. Among these, the most extensively used genes are the glycine betaine biosynthetic codA, the DREB transcription factors, and vacuolar membrane Na⁺/H⁺ antiporters. The use of codA, DREBs, and Na⁺/H⁺ antiporters in transgenic plants has conferred stress tolerance and improved plant phenotype. However, the future deployment and commercialization of these plants...[Show more]
