Drastic changes in climatic conditions cause a growing shortage of agricultural plants, and also stimulate the development of Adrobacterium – mediated transformation are actively used to obtain forms of plants with an increased level of resistance to abiotic stresses. As a result of a series of biotechnological manipulations; GM plant Triticum aestivum L. was obtained. 7-day T2 plants of Triticum aestivum L.  genotype UK-95/17 were studied and the response to the effects of short-term settlement and water deficit, related to the accumulation of free proline, as well as the nature of seed production under stress were anolized. Accumulation of the protective effect is aimed of the culture. It is know that proline under stressful condition can be for med both as a result of its increased synthesis and as a result of the degradation of proline – containing proteins of the cell membrane. Conducted experiments showed that transgenic plants are characterized by resistance to osmotic stress. At the same time only their parallel study can provide more clear information about their character.
