    ..However, in recent years it has been shown that although higher plants do not accumulate trehalose at significant levels they have actively transcribed genes encoding the corresponding biosynthetic enzymes...

    Planta 226:1411-21. 2007
    ..Therefore, these results demonstrate that engineering trehalose metabolism with a yeast TPS-TPP bifunctional enzyme confers multiple stress protection in plants, comprising a potential tool to improve stress-tolerance in crops...

    Plant Physiol 136:3649-59. 2004
    ..These data strongly suggest that AtTPS1 has a pivotal role in the regulation of Glc and ABA signaling during vegetative development...

    Barbara Leyman
    Institute of Botany and Microbiology, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium
    Methods Mol Biol 267:385-96. 2004
    ..After transformation using AtTPS1 as a selection marker and 6% glucose as selection agent it is possible to single out the green and normal sized transgenic plants amid the nontransformed plantlets...
