Title (EN) SUPPRESSION OF ALPHA-AMYLASE AND PROTEASE EXPRESSION USING A SERINE/THREONINE PROTEIN KINASE
(FR) INHIBITION DE L'EXPRESSION DE L'ALPHA-AMYLASE ET DES PROTEASES AU MOYEN D'UNE PROTEINE KINASE A SERINE-THREONINE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention is directed to methods of altering the expresion of alpha-amylase and proteases without hormones, by altering the expression of protein kinases. In plants, suppression of alpha-amylase and proteases is achieved in the absence of abscisic acid by increasing the expression of protein kinases of the serine/threonine group, such as PKABA1, an abscisic acid (ABA)-responsive protein kinase. Increasing the expression of PKABA1 can be achieved by transforming the plant with a DNA sequence encoding at least one polypeptide having a PKABA1 protein kinase activity linked to a suitable promoter.
(FR)La présente invention concerne des méthodes permettant de modifier l'expression de l'alpha-amylase et des protéases, sans hormones, en modifiant l'expression de protéines kinases. Chez les végétaux, on peut inhiber l'alpha-amylase et les protéases, en l'absence d'acide abscisique, en augmentant l'expression des protéines kinases du groupe sérine/thréonine telles que la PKABA1, une protéine kinase répondant à l'acide abscisique (ABA). Il est possible d'augmenter l'expression de la PKABA1 en transformant le végétal au moyen d'une séquence d'ADN codant pour au moins un polypeptide ayant une activité protéine kinase de type PKABA1 liée à un promoteur convenable.
