Manipulation of the levels of pyruvate decarboxylase and alcohol dehydrogenase for submergence tolerance in rice
Rice plants are partially or completely submerged when fields are flooded. During submergence, rice plants encounter anaerobic conditions, and suffer severe injury, often death, leading to major crop losses in countries affected by monsoonal flooding. Pyruvate decarboxylase (PDC) and alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) catalyse thanol fermentation (EF), the major energy-producing pathway under conditions of low oxygen and are among the anaerobic polypeptides induced under such conditions.
