Virus-induced gene silencing is based on the sequence-specific degradation of RNA. Here, a gene silencing vector derived from EuMV-YP, named pEuMV-YP:ΔAV1, was used to silence ChlI and NPR1 genes in Nicotiana benthamiana. The silencing of the ChlI transcripts was efficient in the stems, petioles and leaves as reflected in tissue bleaching and reduced(More)
In vitro plant cell and tissue culture techniques are the basis of many micropropagation and breeding programs for scientific research. Plant tissue culture (PTC) involves organogenesis and embryogenesis, and the outcome depends on the different conditions to which the tissue is exposed. PTC is a stressful environment—high relative humidity, low ventilation(More)
