Lagenaria siceraria ring zinc finger 1 (LsRZF1)-antisense expression of transgenic watermelon rootstock improves drought stress tolerance in Citrullus lanatus

Watermelon is a major fruit vegetable around the world. Drought is an abiotic stress factor that affects the productivity

and growth of crop plants. To enhance the tolerance of watermelon to drought stress, it is important to isolate stress

tolerance-related genes. Recently, we characterized the gene for ubiquitin E3 ligase protein named Lagenaria siceraria RING

Zinc Finger 1 (LsRZF1). In Arabidopsis, LsRZF1 is involved in the drought response through the proline metabolism-mediated
