Large number of primary transgenic events were generated in groundnut by an Agrobacterium mediated, in planta transformation method to assess the efficacy of cry1AcF against the Spodoptera litura. The amplification of required size fragment of 750 bp with npt II primers and 901 bp with cry1AcF gene primers confirmed the integration of the gene. The(More)
Groundnut is an important oilseed crop of the Indian subcontinent. Yield losses due to fungal diseases are enormous in the cultivation of this crop. Over-expression of PR proteins leads to increased resistance to pathogenic fungi in several crops. The PR protein glucanase hydrolyses a major cell-wall component, glucan, of pathogenic fungi and acts as a(More)
Coexpression of two antifungal genes ( NPR1 and defensin ) in transgenic peanut results in the development of resistance to two major fungal pathogens, Aspergillus flavus and Cercospora arachidicola. Fungal diseases have been one of the principal causes of crop losses with no exception to peanut (Arachis hypogeae L.), a major oilseed crop in Asia and(More)
Late blight, caused by oomycetes pathogen Phytophthora infestans (Mont.) de Bary, is the most devastating potato disease in the world. RB gene from Solanum bulbocastanum has been shown to impart broad spectrum resistance against P. infestans races. In this study Katahdin transgenic event SP951 was used as male parent to cross with the popular Indian potato(More)
Genes involved in photoassimilate partitioning and changes in hormonal balance are important for potato tuberization. In the present study, we investigated gene expression patterns in the tuber-bearing potato somatic hybrid (E1-3) and control non-tuberous wild species Solanum etuberosum (Etb) by microarray. Plants were grown under controlled conditions and(More)
SYBR green based realtime RT-PCR assay coupled with melt curve analysis was developed for the detection of Potato spindle tuber viroid (PSTVd) along with and without internal control from potato. The amplification of the specific targets was identified by their melting points viz., 85.93±0.22, 85.62±0.34 and 82.07±0.23 for primer pairs PSTVd-1F/PSTVd-1R,(More)
A rapid and efficient sap inoculation method for tobacco streak virus (TSV) was developed in sunflower. Sap from TSV-infected sunflower plants was freshly extracted in phosphate buffer and diluted serially from 10−1 to 10−8. Two-day old seedlings of sunflower were injured at the meristem and immersed in the sap for 10 min, maintained at 20 °C for 2–3 days(More)
Creation of formal decision models involves selecting the set of relevant factors to consider and the level of detail at which to represent them. In decision modeling, abstraction facilitates reasoning at multiple levels of detail by focusing on the important decision parameters; abstraction also allows reasoning under time-constraints or with insufficient(More)
