Deployment of Stacked Antimicrobial Genes in Banana for Stable Tolerance Against Fusarium oxysporum f.sp. cubense Through Genetic Transformation
TLDR
The stacked lines revealed higher activity of Super Oxide Dismutase and Peroxidase compared to untransformed control which depicted higher tolerance to oxidative stress caused by Foc infection. Expand
Sonication assisted Agrobacterium transformation of banana cv. Ney Poovan shoot tips with GUS reporter gene
TLDR
An efficient protocol for Agrobacterium- mediated transformation of banana cv Ney Poovan was standardized which may possibly be useful for future studies on genetic modification and development of transgenics using novel genes. Expand
RAPID AND SENSITIVE DETECTION OF XANTHOMONAS AXONOPODIS PV . PUNICAE INFECTING POMEGRANATE USING LOOP-MEDIATED ISOTHERMAL AMPLIFICATION
Bacterial blight of pomegranate caused by Xap has severely hampered pomegranate cultivation in all major pomegranategrowing states of India including Maharashtra, Karnataka, and Andhra PradeshExpand
In vitro shoot regeneration from nodal explants of pomegranate (Punica granatum L.) cv Bhagwa
The pomegranate fruits are of commercial values owing to their medicinal values. The plantation is popular due to the high yield at a low maintenance cost. Pomegranate is conventionally, propagatedExpand
Induction of Ced9 mediated anti-apoptosis in commercial banana cultivar Rasthali for stable resistance against Fusarium wilt
TLDR
This is the first report from India on the generation of transgenic banana cultivar Rasthali expressing antiapoptotic Ced-9 gene for resistance to Fusarium wilt. Expand
Engineering Resistance to Fusarium Wilt
TLDR
Current review highlights on the application of genetic engineering for imparting resistance against Fusarium wilt and discusses the various strategies that have been employed involving PR-related genes, antimicrobial genes, antiapoptosis gene and RNAi-mediated approach – host-induced gene silencing (HIGS) that confers a certain level of tolerance towards pathogen infection.

Engineering Resistance to Sigatoka
TLDR
In the current review, the potential strategies used to enhance the resistance to sigatoka through genetic engineering employing different approaches like overexpression of pathogenesis-related protein (PR) antifungal proteins and bacterial hydrolytic enzymes and utilization of RNAi-mediated gene silencing of pathogen-relatedprotein encoded by pathogens are summarized.
