Title: PATHOGEN RESISTANT PLANT CELLS AND METHODS OF MAKING
Abstract:
The present invention relates to genetically modified plant cells that have reduced expression or activity of at least one amino acid efflux transporter and/or at least one mineral efflux transporter compared to levels of expression or activity of the at least one amino acid efflux transporter or mineral efflux transporter in an unmodified plant cell. The present invention also relates to genetically modified plant cells that have increased expression or activity of at least one amino acid influx transporter and/or at least one mineral influx transporter compared to levels of expression or activity of the at least one amino acid influx transporter or mineral influx transporter in an unmodified plant cell.
