  • In SATrends issue 62 (January 2006), we reported that DREB1A transcription factor from Arabidopsisthaliana, when introduced transgenically into groundnut and expressed under the control of a stressresponsivepromoter from A. thaliana rd29A gene, appears to confer water-economizing capacity comparedto its wild type parent variety JL 24 (WT). We now have some exciting observations on roots of DREB1Atransgenics
