OrganismArabidopsis thaliana
Aging PhenotypeN/A
Allele TypeOverexpression
DescriptionAntisense RNA interference of SAG101 in transgenic plants delayed the onset of leaf senescence for approximately 4 days, whereas chemically induced overexpression of SAG101 caused precocious senescence in both attached and detached leaves of transgenic Arabidopsis plants (He and Gan, 2002).
Gene FunctionAcyl hydrolase
Other Phenotypes
