DON-resistance conferring wheat cDNAs (for plant transformation)

In the screen for DON-resistance conferring wheat cDNAs we found 18 plasmids containing 8 different types of inserts. The molecular mechanism responsible for increased resistance is suggested by only a few of the sequences. Potentially such DON-resistance conferring cDNAs could be relevant for plant biotechnology if such a phenotype can also be obtained in transgenic (model) plants.
