Alteration of Phospholipase De (plde) Or Phospholipase Da3 (pld A3) Expression in Plants
Transgenic plants and seeds with altered expression of phospholipase De (PLDe) are described, i.e., plants and seeds either overexpressing or underexpressing PLDe. Methods for producing such transgenic plants and for increasing a plant's ability to capture and utilize nitrogen, increasing a plant's biomass production, increasing the yield of a plant or increasing a plant's ability to grow under hyperosmotic stress by overexpressing PLDe are also disclosed. Further disclosed are transgenic plants and seeds which overexpress phospholipase D alpha3 (PLDa3), methods for producing such transgenic plants and seeds, and methods for increasing a plant's ability to grow under hyperosmotic stress by overexpressing phospholipase D alpha3.
