Title (EN) PLANTS TRANSFORMED FOR ELEVATED LEVELS OF GALLIC ACID AND METHODS OF PRODUCING SAID PLANTS
(FR) VEGETAUX MODIFIES POUR AVOIR DES TENEURS ELEVEES EN ACIDE GALLIQUE, ET PROCEDES POUR PRODUIRE CES VEGETAUX
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Gallic acid inhibits the synthesis by A. flavus of aflatoxin, a toxic carcinogen that can contaminate crops such as corn, peanuts and walnuts rendering them inedible. The present invention takes advantage of this inhibition to provide various methods and compositions useful for protecting crops from contamination. The present invention includes non-naturally occurring plants that contain elevated levels of gallic acid as well as various methods of generating such plants. The present invention further provides methods of application of gallic acid to prevent contamination. In addition, the present invention provides certain genes and proteins that are be useful in making the non-naturally occurring plants.
(FR)L'acide gallique inhibe la synthèse par <i>A. flavus</i> d'aflatoxine, un agent carcinogène toxique qui peut contaminer des céréales telles que le maïs, les cacahuètes, et les noix, et les rendre non comestibles. L'invention tire parti de l'avantage de cette inhibition, pour mettre à disposition différents procédés et différentes compositions utiles pour protéger les céréales de la contamination. L'invention fait intervenir des végétaux d'origine non naturelle qui ont des teneurs élevées en acide gallique, ainsi que différents procédés pour produire ces végétaux. L'invention a également pour objet des procédés d'application de l'acide gallique pour éviter la contamination. De plus, l'invention se rapporte à certains gènes et certaines protéines qui sont utiles pour produire lesdits végétaux d'origine non naturelle.
