Quantification of cuticular permeability in genetically modified plants

Kerstiens, Gerhard and Schreiber, Lukas and Lendzian, Klaus J. (2006) Quantification of cuticular permeability in genetically modified plants. Journal of Experimental Botany, 57 (11). pp. 2547-2552. ISSN 1460-2431

More and more studies on genetically modified plants are identifying parts of the genetic code with putative involvement in creating the cuticular barrier. Unfortunately, many of these studies suffer from the inadequacy of the chosen methods to quantify, in a reasonably unambiguous way, if and how the efficacy of the cuticular barrier is affected by the genetic change. A short overview of relevant findings is given and a more stringent experimental approach to quantifying effects on cuticular permeability in genetically modified plants proposed.
