|Fig. 1. Field trial in a confined field in Colombia.
PZmUbi plants (right) show poorer growth and less yield but POsUbi7 plants (left) showed comparable agronomical traits comparable with Nipponbare.
|Fig. 2. Disease resistance of WRKY45 expression lines.
PZmUbi, POsUbi7, and Nipponbare plants were tested for disease resistance.
(A) Blast resistance against 2 races of fungal pathogen.
(B) Leaf blight resistance against 3 races of bacterial pathogen isolated in Japan.
|Fig. 3. Low-temperature sensitivity of WRKY45 expression lines. Most of PZmUbi plants exposed to low temperature (8℃) for 7d, and transferred to room temperature died,whereas the POsUbi7 and Nipponbare plants survived.|
