[Background] Soil salinity seriously affects cotton growth, leading to the reduction of yield and fiber quality. Recently, genetic engineering has become an efficient tool to increase abiotic stress tolerance in crops.
[Results] In this study, isopentyl transferase (IPT), a key enzyme involved in cytokinin (CTK) biosy...
