High impact information on TGG2


Biological context of TGG2

  • However, developmental decreases in glucosinolate content during senescence and germination were unaffected, showing that these processes occur independently of TGG1 and TGG2 [1].
  • These genes were isolated from a genomic library and two of them, TGG1 and TGG2, were sequenced [2].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of TGG2
