Herbicide resistance and cross-resistance: changes at three distinct sites in the herbicide-binding protein.

Abstract

Plants and algae resistant to the commonly used s-triazine herbicides display a wide spectrum of cross-resistance to other herbicides that act in a similar manner. Analysis of uniparental mutants of the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardi showed that three different amino acid residues in the 32-kilodalton thylakoid membrane protein can be independently altered to produce three different patterns of resistance to s-triazine and urea-type herbicides. These results clarify the molecular basis for herbicide resistance and cross-resistance. Two of the mutations do not alter normal electron transport and thus may have applications of agronomic interest.
