An in vitro plant regeneration and genetic transformation protocol was established in jute (Corchorus capsularis L. var JRC321). One-day-old apical, meristematic tissues of germinating seedlings were used as explants. Multiple shoots were regenerated from each explant using Murashige and Skoog basal medium containing 1.78 µM benzylamino purine and 4.92 µM(More)
Over-expression of the unedited mitochondrial orfB gene product generates male sterility in fertile indica rice lines in a dose-dependent manner. Cytoplasmic male sterility (CMS) and nuclear-controlled fertility restoration are widespread developmental features in plant reproductive systems. In self-pollinated crop plants, these processes often provide(More)
Genetically engineered rice lines with broad insecticidal properties against major lepidopteran pests were generated using a synthetic, truncated form of vegetative insecticidal protein (Syn vip3BR) from Bacillus thuringiensis. The selectable marker gene and the redundant transgene(s) were eliminated through Cre/ lox mediated recombination and genetic(More)
An in vitro plant generation and genetic transformation protocol was established in sesame (Sesamum indicum L. cv Rama) through biolistic particle gun bombardment. 5-day-old apical, meristematic tissues of in vitro-germinating seedlings were used as explants. 10–15 Multiple shoots were generated from each explant using Murashige and Skoog basal medium(More)
