A chimeric gene containing a cloned cDNA of the coat protein (CP) gene of tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) was introduced into tobacco cells on a Ti plasmid of Agrobacterium tumefaciens from which tumor inducing genes had been removed. Plants regenerated from transformed cells expressed TMV mRNA and CP as a nuclear trait. Seedlings from self-fertilized transgenic(More)
Morphologically normal plants were regenerated from Nicotiana plumbaginifolia cells transformed with an Agrobacterium tumefaciens strain containing a tumor-inducing plasmid with a chimeric gene for kanamycin resistance. The presence of the chimeric gene in regenerated plants was demonstrated by Southern hybridization analysis, and its expression in plant(More)
A gene encoding the alpha'-subunit of beta-conglycinin, a seed storage protein of soybean (Glycine max), was transformed into petunia cells on a disarmed Ti-plasmid of Agrobacterium tumefaciens, and plants were regenerated. Transcripts of the introduced gene accumulated in immature embryos but not in leaves of the transformed plants. Soybean protein was(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to evaluate the interexaminer reliability of a leg length analysis protocol between an experienced chiropractor and an inexperienced chiropractic student who has undergone an intensive training program. METHODS Fifty participants, aged from 18 to 55 years, were recruited from the New Zealand College of Chiropractic(More)
