The aim of this work is to investigate the role of N-acetylornithine deacetylase (NAOD) in fruit development. To study its biological role, we have generated silenced lines by transforming Arabidopsis plants with a hairpin construct and searched for T-DNA null mutants. We obtained two silenced lines that showed approximately 90%reduction in NAOD transcript level in comparison with wild type. The phenotypical analysis of these lines revealed a reduced growth and a lower number of siliques in comparison with control plants. A T-DNA insertional line was obtained from the SALK collection. The expression of the gene was almost completely abolished in the homozygous mutant line.

Abstract

The aim of this work is to investigate the role of N-acetylornithine deacetylase (NAOD) in fruit development. To study its biological role, we have generated silenced lines by transforming Arabidopsis plants with a hairpin construct and searched for T-DNA null mutants. We obtained two silenced lines that showed approximately 90%reduction in NAOD transcript level in comparison with wild type. The phenotypical analysis of these lines revealed a reduced growth and a lower number of siliques in comparison with control plants. A T-DNA insertional line was obtained from the SALK collection. The expression of the gene was almost completely abolished in the homozygous mutant line.
