  • Patent number: 11447794
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method of increasing resistance against fungal pathogens of the family Phacosporaceae plants and/or plant cells. This is achieved for instance by increasing the expression of a hydrophobin protein or fragment thereof in a plant, plant part and/or plant cell in comparison to wild type plants, wild type plant parts and/or wild type plant cells. In the transgenic plants hydrophobin can be expressed as a fusion protein to facilitate and/or enhance expression. Furthermore, the hydrophobin protein can be expressed including a secretion signal sequence which mediates secretion of the protein into the apoplast and/or into the cuticule.

  • Patent number: 11371055
    Abstract: The subject invention provides novel plants that are not only resistant to 2,4-D, but also to pyridyloxyacetate herbicides. Heretofore, there was no expectation or suggestion that a plant with both of these advantageous properties could be produced by the introduction of a single gene. The subject invention also includes plants that produce one or more enzymes of the subject invention “stacked” together with one or more other herbicide resistance genes. The subject invention enables novel combinations of herbicides to be used in new ways. Furthermore, the subject invention provides novel methods of preventing the development of, and controlling, strains of weeds that are resistant to one or more herbicides such as glyphosate. The preferred enzyme and gene for use according to the subject invention are referred to herein as AAD-12 (AryloxyAlkanoate Dioxygenase). This highly novel discovery is the basis of significant herbicide tolerant crop trait and selectable marker opportunities.
