AtHKT1 is a sodium (Na+) transporter that functions in mediating tolerance to salt stress. To investigate the membrane targeting of AtHKT1 and its expression at the translational level, antibodies were generated against peptides corresponding to the first pore of AtHKT1. Immunoelectron microscopy studies using anti-AtHKT1 antibodies demonstrate that AtHKT1(More)
An efficient and novel method of direct shoot regeneration from root tips in garlic was developed. The influence of growth regulators, basal media and age of root explant on shoot initiation and proliferation was examined. The best growth regulator combination was 1-naphthaleneacetic acid and 6-benzyladenine at 1 and 10 µM, respectively, inducing shoot(More)
A method was developed to initiate multiple shoots from the young shoot of kenaf. Young shoots along with the cotyledons were excised from ten-day old aseptically germinated seeds and pre-cultured for two weeks in Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium supplemented with benzyl adenine (BA) or a combination of BA and kinetin. After two weeks in culture, elongated(More)
Stable transformation and regeneration was developed for a grain legume, azuki bean (Vigna angularis Willd. Ohwi & Ohashi). Two constructs containing the neomycin phosphotransferase II gene (nptII) and either the β-glucuronidase (GUS) gene or the modified green fluorescent protein [sGFP(S65T)] gene were introduced independently via Agrobacterium(More)
A procedure for multiple shoot formation from cotyledonary node explants of faba bean (Vicia faba L.cv.S.Ghdar) cultured on MS medium containing benzyladenine (BA) and thidiazuron (TDZ) was developed. Explants on medium with TDZ in combination with BA produced a higher number of shoots than with either cytokinin alone. The highest number of shoots was(More)
The possible involvement of ethylene in in vitrorooting of faba bean (Vicia faba L.) shootsregenerated on medium containing thidiazuron wasinvestigated. The effects of the ethylene precursor1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic acid (ACC) and threeethylene inhibitors, silver nitrate (AgNO3),acetyl salicylic acid (ASA) and cobalt chloride(CoCl2) on root formation(More)
As a first step in the development of a successful Agrobacterium tumefaciens mediated transformation method for kenaf, factors influencing the successful T-DNA integration and expression (as measured by the GUS expression) were investigated. Transformation was carried out using two kenaf cultivars and Agrobacterium strain EHA 105 carrying different vectors,(More)
Non-embryogenic protoplasts of Medicago rugosa and M. scutellata were electro-fused with iodoacetic acid-treated protoplasts of M. sativa (alfalfa). Putative somatic hybrid callus were obtained and some plants regenerated from both combinations. Hybridity of regenerants was confirmed by morphology, molecular means and cytological observations. Parental(More)
In vitro culture of cotyledonary node (cn)explants, decapitated and intact seedlings of four different AsiaticVigna species (germinated and subcultured in MS-B5 mediumwith 1.0 mg l−1 BA) resulted in axillaryshoot formation only from the epigeal V. radiata and thehypogeal but allotetraploid V. glabrescens. The hypogealspecies V. angularis and V.(More)
Explanted cotyledons of mungbean Vigna radiata (L). Wilczek, variety Pag-asa-1, regenerated shoots directly from the basal adaxial side of the petiolar residue on MS medium supplemented with 8.9 μM 6-benzyladenine. A simplified and rapid procedure for glycol methacrylate sectioning for histological observations was used to observe shoot initiation. At the(More)
