Table 4 Candidate genes for overexpression to increase phosphorus use efficiency

From: Regulation of phosphorus uptake and utilization: transitioning from current knowledge to practical strategies

Gene Response to phosphorus starvation References
Cm-PAP10.1, Cm-PAP10.2, Cm-RNS1 Highly upregulated upon phosphorus starvation, with potential to increase phosphorus remobilization efficiency [123]
AtLPR Upregulated under conditions of phosphorus starvation, promoting lateral root formation and phosphorus use efficiency via down-regulating auxin suppressors [121]
AtPAP26 Confers PSI intracellular (vacuolar) APase activity [124]
TaALMT1 Increases phosphorus acquisition efficiency and grain yield [125]
