Centrifugation Assisted Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated Transformation (CAAT) of embryogenic cell suspensions of banana (Musa spp. Cavendish AAA and Lady finger AAB)
Centrifugation-assisted Agrobacterium-mediated transformation (CAAT) protocol, developed using banana cultivars from two economically important genomic groups (AAA and AAB) of cultivated Musa, isExpand
Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation of wheat using a superbinary vector and a polyamine-supplemented regeneration medium
Abstract. Immature embryo-derived calli of spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cv Veery5 were transformed using Agrobacterium tumefaciens strain LBA4404 carrying either binary vector pHK22 orExpand
Genotype x culture media interaction effects on regeneration response of three indica rice cultivars
Interactive effects of genotypes with callus induction and regeneration media combinations on green plantlet regeneration response were studied for three indica rice (Oryza sativa L.) cultivars,Expand
Elite Indica Transgenic Rice Plants Expressing Modified Cry1Ac Endotoxin of Bacillus Thuringiensis Show Enhanced Resistance to Yellow Stem Borer (Scirpophaga Incertulas)
Bt-transgenics of elite indica rice breeding lines (IR-64, Pusa Basmati-1 and Karnal Local) were generated through biolistic of Agrobacterium-mediated approaches. A synthetic cry1Ac gene, codonExpand
Golden bananas in the field: elevated fruit pro‐vitamin A from the expression of a single banana transgene
Summary Vitamin A deficiency remains one of the world's major public health problems despite food fortification and supplements strategies. Biofortification of staple crops with enhanced levels ofExpand
Transgenic Cavendish bananas with resistance to Fusarium wilt tropical race 4
Banana (Musa spp.) is a staple food for more than 400 million people. Over 40% of world production and virtually all the export trade is based on Cavendish banana. However, Cavendish banana is underExpand
Apoptosis-related genes confer resistance to Fusarium wilt in transgenic 'Lady Finger' bananas.
Fusarium wilt, caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense (Foc), is one of the most devastating diseases of banana (Musa spp.). Apart from resistant cultivars, there are no effective controlExpand
Agrobacterium-mediated transformation of indica ricecultivars using binary and superbinary vectors
The Agrobacterium-mediated transformation system was extended to two indica cultivars: a widely cultivated breeding line IR-64 and an elite basmati cultivar Karnal Local. Root tips and shoot tips Expand
Diplotaxis catholica + Brassica juncea somatic hybrids: molecular and cytogenetic characterization
SummaryIntergeneric somatic hybrids Diplotaxis catholica (2n=18) + Brassica juncea (2n=36) were produced by fusing mesophyll protoplasts of the former and hypocotyl protoplasts of the latter usingExpand
Isolation and functional characterisation of banana phytoenesynthase genes as potential cisgenes
Carotenoids occur in all photosynthetic organisms where they protect photosystems from auto-oxidation, participate in photosynthetic energy transfer and are secondary metabolites. Of the more thanExpand
