Efficient biolistic transformation of maize (Zea mays L.) and wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) using the phosphomannose isomerase gene, pmi, as the selectable marker
TLDR
A selectable marker system for plant transformation that does not require the use of antibiotics or herbicides was developed, and transgenic plants were produced efficiently after delivery by Biolistics™ of the pmi gene into maize and wheat tissues. Expand
Regulation of a hevein-like gene in Arabidopsis.
An Arabidopisis cDNA clone was isolated that encodes a protein similar to the antifungal chitin-binding protein hevein from rubber tree latex. This hevein-like (HEL) mRNA was inducible by eitherExpand
A simple method for the recovery of multiple fertile plants from individual somatic embryos of soybean [Glycine max (L.) merrill]
TLDR
By this method any number of plants can be produced from individual somatic embryos, and the risk of losing valuable genotypes due to inefficient embryo germination and embryo-to-plant conversion is greatly reduced. Expand
Isolation of transgenic progeny of maize by embryo rescue under selective conditions
TLDR
Results demonstrated that the gene construct was expressed in both embryo and leaf tissue and that selection during germination successfully eliminated progeny lacking the gene of interest. Expand
