Herbicide resistance is used as a lethal selectable marker for chloroplast transformation.
The methods comprise transforming the cells with nucleotide sequences encoding herbicide resistance genes.
In particular, herbicide resistance is conferred by expression of proteins with homology to decarboxylase enzymes.
Nucleotide sequences are disclosed that may be used to impart herbicide resistance to green plants.
Transformation with DNA encoding glutathione-S-transferase polypeptides produces herbicide resistance transgenic plants.
Such traits include herbicide and pesticide resistance.
Plant tissue transformed with hemG demonstrates a resistance to PBI herbicides and plants grown from transformed seeds possess the PBI herbicide-resistant phenotype.
Sorghum genotypes that exhibit resistance to dinitroanaline herbicides are disclosed.
The present invention provides methods to confer resistance to protoporphyrinogen-inhibiting herbicides onto crop plants.
The present invention relates to a method for conferring herbicide, pest, and disease resistance in plant hosts.
The vector further includes an additional nucleic acid sequence encoding a protein which imparts resistance to an herbicide when expressed in the infected plant.
Rice plants are disclosed with two separate, but synergistic mechanisms for resistance to herbicides that normally inhibit a plant's acetohydroxyacid synthase (AHAS) enzyme.
Rice plants are disclosed with multiple sources of resistance to herbicides that normally inhibit a plant's acetohydroxyacid synthase (AHAS) enzyme.
Compositions and methods for conferring herbicide tolerance or resistance to a plant are provided.
