Title (EN) DNA, CONSTRUCTS, CELLS AND PLANTS DERIVED THEREFROM
(FR) CONSTRUCTIONS D'ADN, ET LES CELLULES ET PLANTES DERIVEES
Abstract:
(EN) The gene of the construct pTOM5 is involved in the carotenoid pathway, which produces carotenes, lutein, xanthophylls, and pigments such as lycopene. The invention proposes to modify (inhibit or promote) the synthesis of such compounds in plants using novel DNA constructs comprising a DNA sequence homologous to some or all of the gene encoded by the clone pTOM5, preceded by a plant promoter. In particular, colour of plant parts, especially fruit, may be modified. Yellow tomatoes are disclosed.
(FR) Le gène de la construction pTOM5 est impliqué dans le chemin caroténoïdal, qui produit les carotènes, la lutéine, les xanthophylles et les pigments tels que le lycopène. L'invention a pour but de modifier (d'inhiber ou de promouvoir) la synthèse de tels composés dans les plantes à l'aide de nouvelles constructions d'ADN comprenant une séquence ADN homologue à une partie ou à la totalité du gène codé par le clone pTOM5, précédé d'un promoteur végétal. En particulier, on peut modifier la couleur de parties de la plante, et surtout du fruit. On décrit des tomates jaunes.
