General Information Comment Organism
physiological function overexpression of GES in Nicotiana tabacum. Growth, morphology and photosynthetic efficiency of GES plants are not significantly different from those of control plants. GES plants' direct defenses against herbivores or pathogens are similar to those of control plants, their indirect defense (i.e. attracting herbivore enemy Nesidiocoris tenuis) is stronger compared to that of control plants. GES transgenic plants are susceptible to cold stress and even more susceptible to extreme heat stress (50°C). GES plants show decreased transcription levels of the WRKY33 transcription factor gene and aquaporin gene PIP2 Ocimum basilicum
