Title Plant having improved growth ability and disease resistance and method for production thereof achieved
Abstract (US8097770)
Disclosed is a transgenic plant improved in growth ability and disease resistance.
Also disclosed is a method for production of the transgenic plant.
It is found that a transgenic plant having DNA encoding a glutathione-binding plastid-type fructose-1,6-bisphosphate aldolase introduced therein is improved in growing ability and disease resistance compared to a wild-type one.
Scope of claims [claim1]
1. A method for producing a plant in which plant growth traits are improved and damage caused by insects or diseases are reduced, the method comprising the steps of: introducing, to a plant, a DNA encoding a glutathione-binding plastid-type fructose-1,6-bisphosphate aldolase, and
selecting a plant transformed with the DNA encoding the glutathione-binding plastid-type fructose-1,6-bisphosphate aldolase and exhibiting improved insect-resistance or improved disease resistance.
[claim2]
2. The method as set forth in claim 1, wherein the DNA encoding the glutathione-binding plastid-type fructose-1,6-bisphosphate aldolase is selected from the group consisting of the following (a) through (d): (a) a DNA encoding a protein having the amino acid sequence shown in SEQ ID NO: 1;
(b) a DNA encoding a protein having an amino acid sequence with deletion, substitution, or addition of 10 or less amino acids in the amino acid sequence shown in SEQ ID NO: 1;
(c) a DNA having the base sequence shown in SEQ ID NO: 2; and
(d) a DNA that hybridizes under stringent conditions with a DNA having the base sequence shown in SEQ ID NO: 2.
[claim3]
3. The method as set forth in claim 1, wherein the one or more selected plants exhibits improved resistance to an insect.
[claim4]
4. The method as set forth in claim 1, wherein the one or more selected plants exhibits improved resistance to a disease.
[claim5]
5. The method as set forth in claim 4, wherein the one or more selected plants exhibits improved resistance to Colletotrichum higginsianum infection.
[claim6]
6. The method as set forth in claim 4, wherein the one or more selected plants exhibits improved resistance to pseudomonas syringae infection.
