EukaResist – Enhanced stress tolerance & increased harvest yield by iso-enzyme replacement
Method for enhancement of general stress resistance, based on improved reductant supply (NADPH) in the cytosol via Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PDH).
– G6PDH-isoenzyme replacement resulted in highly uniform defense responses, enhanced drought tolerance, acceler-ated flowering and increased harvest yields. Challenge Worldwide every year billions of US dollars worth of harvest are lost due to biotic (pathogens) and abiotic (drought, heat or salt) stress. Stress responses consume a lot of energy and thus constantly challenge plant performance. The prob-lem of elite lines with high yield in commercial crops is often compromised stress resistance due to intensive breeding.
