• CmERF5‐CmRAP2.3 transcriptional cascade positively regulates waterlogging tolerance in Chrysanthemum morifolium

    1 month ago - By Wiley

    Summary
    Waterlogging stress affects plant growth by limiting root respiration and reducing yield and economic value. Therefore, identifying genes involved in regulating waterlogging stress is vital. This study reports the ethylene-response VII transcription factor in chrysanthemum. Subcellular localization and transactivation assay analyses revealed that CmRAP2.3 was localized in the nucleus and possessed transactivation activity. Overexpression of CmRAP2.3 in chrysanthemum was found to enhance waterlogging tolerance by decreasing reactive oxygen species levels. Furthermore, we found that...
