|B/BE/20/V1||VIB||Maize||Scientific field evaluation of maize with modified growth characteristics||
Modified growth characteristics resulting from the additional expression of the AN3 gene under the control of the EF1a promoter. This gene is a transcriptional co-activator that is involved in the regulation of cell proliferation. As a result of the modification the duration of growth is elongated which results in the formation of larger plant organs such as larger leaves. It is also results in the formation of more biomass.
