A bacterial mannitol-1-phosphate dehydrogenase (mtlD) gene driven by the constitutive cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV) 35S promoter was transferred into tomato plants using an Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation protocol in an attempt to improve abiotic stress tolerance in the transformed plants. Transgene integration was confirmed by PCR(More)
In an attempt to improve chilling stress tolerance, an Arabidopsis C-repeat binding factor 1 (At-CBF1) gene driven by the inducible promoter RD29A was co-transferred into tomato var. Shalimar. Marker (NPTII)-free transgenic were obtained in T1 generation because of unlinked integration of CBF1 and NPTII genes. Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction(More)
Marker-free transgenic cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) cv. Poinsett 76 SR plants were produced by Agrobacterium mediated transformation. A transformation efficiency of 1.62 was observed on using Agrobacterium tumefaciens strain LBA4404 harbouring Arabidopsis cbf1 gene driven by the inducible promoter RD29A in a binary vector system pCAMBIA. Transgene(More)
A set of 99 common bean germplasm collected from central Himalaya was investigated for their genetic variability using random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers. Ten oligonucleotide primers, selected from 60 initially screened, generated 123 amplicon products. Of these, two amplicons were shared by all the accessions whereas 112 were polymorphic at(More)
Efficient plant regeneration via shoot tip provided a basis for the optimization of the genetic transformation protocol. Therefore, experiments were conducted to establish an efficient in vitro regeneration protocol in summer squash for genetic co-transformation. 6-benzylaminopurine at 0.05 mg l−l was found to be optimum concentration of direct regeneration(More)
Triticin, a legumin-like storage protein of wheat endosperm, was discovered nearly three decades ago but so far there is no report on its effect on the processing quality of wheat that is thought to be determined primarily by prolamins, its major seed storage proteins. To investigate the effect of different classes of seed proteins on wheat quality using a(More)
Pigeonpea production is severely constrained by wilt disease caused by Fusarium udum. In the current study, we discover the putative genomic regions that control resistance response to variant 2 of fusarium wilt using association mapping approach. The association panel comprised of 89 diverse pigeonpea genotypes including seven varieties, three landraces(More)
