  • Patent number: 11306118
    Abstract: The present invention relates to compounds according to general formula (I) with enhanced absorption of UV-B irradiation. The present invention also relates to an UV-B tolerant plant and a method for enhanced production of compounds according to general formula (I) in a plant or plant cell. Furthermore, the invention relates to a nucleic acid sequence SEQ-ID No. 1 encoding FPT2 catalyzing the production of compounds according to general formula (I). The invention further relates to compositions comprising compounds according to general formula (I). Furthermore, the invention relates to a method of conferring UV-B tolerance to a plant as well as an UV-B tolerant plant comprising the nucleic acid sequence SEQ-ID No. 1 encoding FPT2 catalyzing the production of compounds according to general formula (I).

  • Patent number: 7906707
    Abstract: Nucleic acid molecules are described which encode polypeptides having the enzymatic activity of a fructosyltransferase. Also, vectors, host cells and transgenic plants are described which contain such nucleic acid molecules. Furthermore, processes for producing polyfructose, particularly that of the inulin type, using the hosts described and/or the fructosyltransferase produced by them are described.
