Cell suspension cultures of Triticum monococcum, Panicum maximum, Saccharum officinarum, Pennisetum americanum, and a double cross trispecific hybrid between Pennisetum americanum, P. purpureum, and P. squamulatum were tested for resistance to kanamycin, hygromycin, and methotrexate for use in transformation studies. All cultures showed high natural levels(More)
The tissue specificity of the heat-shock response in maize was investigated. The ability to synthesize heat shock proteins (hsp) at 40 degrees C, as well as the intensity and duration of that synthesis, was analyzed in coleoptiles, scutella, green and etiolated leaves, suspension-cultured cells, germinating pollen grains, and primary root sections at(More)
Five clones were isolated from five different amino acid analog-resistant Daucus carota L. var. Sativa and Nicotiana tabacum L. cv. Xanthi cell lines. The individual clones were similar in their resistance to dl-5-methyltryptophan, S-(2-aminoethyl)-l-cysteine, or azetidine-2-carboxylic acid, and in their corresponding free amino acid levels.The cell(More)
Protoplast fusion provides a nonsexual system for the transfer of genetic information between cell types. This transfer can be between species, genera, families, or kingdoms, thereby allowing unique opportunities to study somatic cell genetics in plants. Individual chromosomes (1) or pieces of chromosomes (2) have been transferred between species in(More)
Suspension cultures of carrot (Daucus carota, line C1), tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum, line TX1), and Nicotiana plumbaginifolia (line NP) were frozen under controlled conditions with trehalose as the sole cryoprotectant. Maximal post-thaw viability (71-74%), measured by phenosafranin dye exclusion, was obtained with the C1 cells following a 24hour pretreatment(More)
Promoter strengths of two maize alcohol dehydrogenase genes, Adh1 and Adh2, and the maize shrunken-1 gene, Sh1, were evaluated by transient expression in cultured protoplasts of Panicum maximum, Triticum monococcum, and Daucus carota. Promoter elements were ligated in correct and opposite orientations as transcriptional gene fusions to the chloramphenicol(More)
