  • Patent number: 11408011
    Abstract: The chloroplast vesiculation (CV) gene encodes a protein associated with stress-induced chloroplast degradation. Inhibiting expression or activity of the protein inhibits or delays stress-induced chloroplast degradation and confers tolerance to a variety of stress conditions. Alternatively, enhancing CV expression or activity promotes chloroplast degradation and enhances nutrient assimilation in desired sink tissues, such as young leaves, fruit, or seeds.
