Title A method of creating a plant improved in tolerance to iron deficiency
Abstract (US8207401)
The present invention provides a polypeptide which binds to a cis-element in the vicinity of a gene related to an iron-acquisition mechanism.
The polypeptide can increase expression of the gene related to the iron-acquiring mechanism.
This makes it possible to obtain a plant improved in tolerance to iron deficiency.
Scope of claims [claim1]
1. A method of creating a plant improved in tolerance to iron deficiency compared to a corresponding non-transformant, the method comprising the steps of: introducing a polynucleotide encoding a polypeptide comprising the amino-acid sequence shown in SEQ ID NO: 1 into a plant; and
selecting a transgenic plant which has a phenotype of improved tolerance to iron deficiency, compared to the corresponding non-transformant.
[claim2]
2. The method of claim 1, wherein the polynucleotide comprises the base sequence shown in SEQ ID NO: 2.
