Decreased dicamba transport due to increased flavonoid biosynthesis : a candidate dicamba resistance mechanism
Resistance to dicamba (a synthetic auxin herbicide) has been documented in Kochia scoparia (L.) Schrad. populations since 1994, but the molecular mechanisms of observed resistance cases remain elusive. An RNA-Seq approach was used to identify transcripts with significantly differential transcription responses between inbred lines of dicamba-resistant (9425R) and dicamba-susceptible (7710S) K. scoparia in response to dicamba application. Among the significantly differentially expressed transcripts was both Chalcone Synthase (CHS), the first enzyme and rate-limiting step in the flavonoid biosynthesis ...
