Cleome spinosa is widely used as a garden ornamental in many countries. Here we determined the optimal conditions for plant regeneration from different tissue explants grown in vitro. Induction medium containing MS salts, MS vitamins, 3% sucrose, 1 mg l−1 BA, 200 mg l−1 timentin, and 0.8% agar was sufficient for shoot regeneration of all the tissue explants(More)
Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEPC) is a key enzyme in the C4 photosynthetic pathway for the initial fixation of atmospheric CO2 into the four-carbon (C4) acid, oxaloacetate. Here, we report that a vector carrying the intact maize C4 pepc gene was used to transform C3 monocot japonica rice cultivar Tainung 67 (TNG67) which is an important cultivar in(More)
