Disease relevance of pds

  • We have cloned and sequenced a gene, pds, from the cyanobacterium Synechococcus PCC7942 that is responsible for resistance to the bleaching herbicide norflurazon [1].

High impact information on pds

  • Support for this conclusion is obtained from analysis of cells of an additional mutant strain, which overexpress phytoene desaturase due to a deletion mutation in the promoter region of pds [2].
