Increased Rubisco content in maize mitigates chilling stress and speeds recovery

Salesse‐Smith, Coralie E.; Sharwood, Robert; Busch, Florian; Stern, David B


Many C4 plants, including maize, perform poorly under chilling conditions. This phenomenon has been linked in part to decreased Rubisco abundance at lower temperatures. An exception to this is chilling-tolerant Miscanthus, which is able to maintain Rubisco protein content under such conditions. The goal of this study was to investigate whether increasing Rubisco content in maize could improve performance during or following chilling stress. Here, we demonstrate that transgenic lines...[Show more]
