Transcription factors to improve plant resistance to insects
Executive SummaryAs sessile organisms, plants must be able to adapt swiftly to biotic and environmental stimuli, and often do this through transcriptional reprogramming. Upon wounding by a ravenous insect, for instance, jasmonic acid (JA) increases in concentration within a cell and interacts with members of the JAZ family of repressor proteins. Ultimately,...
“Relief of Repression” Strategy to Improve Plant Pest Resistance and Maintain Growth Rate
Executive SummaryPlants are vulnerable to pathogen and insect attack. Typically, pathogen or insect attack elicits a defense response from the plant. Normally, plants choose between new growth and defending against insects or pathogens, and growth is slowed or stopped while the plant is defending itself. Our technology enables plants to grow with activated...
