dc.description.abstract A genetic switch in alfalfa plants that regulates protein production responds to harvesting or wounding, but not heat stress. This switch can also be successfully transferred into other plants, where it is activated by the same external factors. These two characteristics suggest that this switch may be useful in future research into the genetics of plants. en_US
