DON-resistance conferring wheat cDNAs (for plant transformation)

We have full length clones of some wheat genes that may be associated with wheat tolerance to deoxynivalenol (DON) mycotoxin. They were isolated based on the fact that they were up regulated in progeny from a wheat cv. CM 82036 (DON tolerant) and Remus (DON intolerant) that inherited the DON tolerance of the former. These include genes of diverse function. These genes can be tested for their ability to confer DON tolerance upon plants.
