  • Publication number: 20180016593
    Abstract: Herbicide-resistant sunflower plants, isolated polynucleotides that encode herbicide-resistant and wild-type acetohydroxyacid synthase large subunit 1 (AHASL1) polypeptides, and the amino acid sequences of these polypeptides, are described. Expression cassettes and transformation vectors comprising the polynucleotides of the invention, as well as plants and host cells transformed with the polynucleotides, are described. Methods of using the polynucleotides to enhance the resistance of plants to imidazolinone herbicides, and methods for controlling weeds in the vicinity of herbicide-resistant plants are also described.

  • Publication number: 20160222404
    Abstract: Herbicide resistant sunflower plants comprising two different herbicide-resistant alleles of the sunflower acetohydroxyacid synthase large subunit 1 (AHASL1) gene are described. Methods for making these sunflower plants and methods for controlling weeds or other undesired vegetation growing in the vicinity of these sunflower plants are disclosed. Such methods involve the use of acetohydroxyacid synthase-inhibiting herbicides. Methods for controlling parasitic weeds growing on sunflower plants are also described. Additionally provided are methods for determining the genotype of sunflower plants for AHASL1 gene.
