  • Patent number: 10174337
    Abstract: The subject invention provides novel plants that are not only resistant to 2,4-D and other phenoxy auxin herbicides, but also to aryloxyphenoxypropionate 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 alone or “stacked” together with another herbicide resistance gene, preferably a glyphosate resistance gene, so as to provide broader and more robust weed control, increased treatment flexibility, and improved herbicide resistance management options. More specifically, preferred enzymes and genes for use according to the subject invention are referred to herein as AAD (aryloxyalkanoate dioxygenase) genes and proteins. No ?-ketoglutarate-dependent dioxygenase enzyme has previously been reported to have the ability to degrade herbicides of different chemical classes and modes of action.

  • Patent number: 9518268
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention relate generally to drought tolerant transgenic plants and methods of creating the drought tolerant transgenic plants. In one embodiment, plants are transformed such that a PYL polypeptide is overexpressed in the plant. In an embodiment, the plant is transformed with a cassette or vector that comprises a polynucleotide encoding for one or more of the PYL polypeptides, which may be under the control of an inducible or constitutive promoter. In embodiments, overexpression of PYL13 results in plants having increased drought tolerance, such as a decreased transpiration rate, a decreased stomatal conductance, an increased photosynthetic rate, accelerated stress responsive gene expression, and increased water use efficiency, and/or an increased survival rate compared to a control plant. In some embodiments, other PYL proteins having the single point mutations identified in PYL13 are expressed in the plant.
