Discovery of mechanisms of herbicide resistance using the liverwort Marchantia polymorpha

Abstract:

Non-target site resistance (NTSR) to herbicides in weeds is a threat to global crop yields. Few specific alleles conferring NTSR have been identified, only two of which involve loss of gene function. Here, I show that the mechanism of NTSR to the herbicide thaxtomin A (TXTA) conferred by loss-of-function of the gene PAM16 is conserved in Marchantia polymorpha, validating its use as a species with which to study NTSR. To identify novel NTSR mechanisms, I used forward genetics in M. polymorpha ...
