Engineering plants with increased disease resistance: how are we going to express it?

Abstract:

Precise control of transgene expression is pivotal to the engineering of plants with increased disease resistance. Many early attempts to boost disease resistance used constitutive overexpression of defence components but frequently this resulted in poor quality plants. It is now clear that the extensive cellular reprogramming associated with defence will reduce yields if uncontrolled defence reactions are activated in uninfected cells. Therefore, for many strategies pathogen-inducible promot...
