The project achieved good progress in characterising a novel herbicide-responsive switch (HRE1) including a detailed mutational analysis to determine critical nucleotides important for HRE1 activity... The project identified R. solani strains with a range of pathogenicity, a susceptible mutant and genes whose expression correlates well with resistance to R. solani... A number of transgenic lines containing the construct were generated and used for further analysis, with HRE1 activity being measured by light emitting units per plant in different tissues, during plant development and in response to important plant defence and stress signals...
Homology to known stress-responsive genes and the results presented show that the transcription factors identified in this project are involved in plant salt stress responses... Further experiments should be performed to determine the role of these transcription factors in plant responses to salt stress... In the project, the aim was to identify transcription factors that are important in regulating genes involved in salinity tolerance...
