An improved protocol for Agrobacterium-mediated transformation of Duncan grapefruit (Citrus paradisi Macf.) epicotyl explants was developed by examining the effects of six different factors on the efficiency of transformation and combining the best treatment for each factor. The preculturing of explants and the composition of the cocultivation medium were(More)
The economically important citrus crop plant, grapefruit, was genetically transformed, which has not been previously reported. Seedling epicotyl tissue was infected with Agrobacterium tumefaciens carrying a T-DNA vector plasmid containing genes for the scorable marker, β-glucuronidase (GUS) and the selectable marker NPTII. Shoots that regenerated from(More)
Grapefruit (Citrus paradisi Macf. cv Duncan) plants were transformed with several sequences from citrus tristeza closterovirus (CTV) that varied in terms of position in the CTV genome and virus strain origin in an attempt to obtain resistant plants. The sequences included the capsid protein gene from three different strains, a nontranslatable version of the(More)
Transgenic mice carrying the H-2K/human growth hormone (hGH) fusion gene were produced by microinjecting into the pronucleus of fertilized eggs DNA molecules containing 2 kb of the 5' flanking sequences (including promoter) of the class I H-2Kb gene joined to the coding sequences of the hGH gene. Thirteen transgenic mice were obtained which all contained(More)

The activation of the mouse embryo genome has been studied during early cleavage, in vivo. Individual embryos, prepared as whole mounts, were assayed for endogenous RNA polymerase activity. RNA synthesis was detected by autoradiography as the incorporation of [3H]UMP into an acid-insoluble product. No RNA polymerase activity could be detected in the(More)
Nine markers from the pericentromeric region of chromosome 17 were typed in 16 British and five South African families with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1). The markers--p17H8, pHHH202, and EW204--were linked to NF1 at recombination fractions less than 1%. No evidence of locus heterogeneity was detected. Inspection of recombinant events in families(More)
