English A major structural component of the cuticle of plants is cutin. Analysis of the function of cutin in vivo has been limited because no mutants with specific defects in cutin have been characterized. Therefore, transgenic Arabidopsis plants were generated that express and secrete a cutinase from <i>Fusarium solani</i> f sp <i>pisi</i>. Arabidopsis plants expressing the cutinase in the...
