Identification of enzyme gene involved in biosynthesis of toxic steroid glycoalkaloid (SGA) in potato

Reduction of SGA levels in potato breeding is considered an important goal.

This group created SSR2-silenced potatoes and SSR2-disrupted potatoes and found that SGA levels in these recombinant potatoes were 10 percent lower th...
