Over expression of D"-pyrroline-S-carboxylate synthetase increases proline production and confers osmotolerance in transgenic plants.
jejuni in human clinical cases showed a statistical correlation with level of hyperaerotolerance (Pearson correlation coefficient [r] = 0.797; p<0.05), disinfectant (i.e., PAA) resistance (r = 0.771; p<0.05), freeze-thaw tolerance (r = 0.773; p<0.05), and heat tolerance (r = 0.825; p<0.05), whereas the level of osmotolerance was not associated with prevalence (r = 0.18; p = 0.699).
