Investigating chlorsulfuron toxicity and resistance in the liverwort Marchantia polymorpha

Abstract:

Herbicide metabolic resistance is defined as the enhanced ability to metabolically detoxify herbicides. Enzymes that metabolise herbicides belong to the 71 and 72 clans of the cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzyme family and the Tau and Phi classes of the glutathione s-transferase (GST) enzyme family. I show that the 71 and 72 clans and Tau and Phi classes arose before the evolution of land plants and rapidly expanded in seed plants.

Using RNA-Seq and over-expression constructs I show that ...
