Ripening of fleshy fruit: molecular insight and the role of ethylene.
TLDR
Various developments that have taken place in the last decade with respect to identifying and altering the function of ripening-related genes have been described and role of ethylene and ethylene-responsive genes in ripening of fleshy fruit is included. Expand
Agrobacterium -mediated transformation of embryogenic cell suspensions of the banana cultivar Rasthali (AAB)
TLDR
A protocol was developed for establishing embryogenic suspension cultures from in vitro-grown, thin shoot-tip sections of the banana cultivar Rasthali, using Agrobacterium tumefaciens strain EHA105 containing the binary vector pVGSUN with the als gene as a selectable marker and an intron-containing the gusA genes as a reporter gene for transformations. Expand
Expression of hepatitis B surface antigen in transgenic banana plants
Embryogenic cells of bananan cv. Rasthali (AAB) have been transformed with the ‘s’ gene of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) using Agrobacterium mediated transformation. Four different expressionExpand
Host-induced post-transcriptional hairpin RNA-mediated gene silencing of vital fungal genes confers efficient resistance against Fusarium wilt in banana.
TLDR
This study represents an important effort in proving that host-induced post-transcriptional ihpRNA-mediated gene silencing of vital fungal genes can confer efficient resistance against debilitating pathogens in crop plants. Expand
MSI-99, a magainin analogue, imparts enhanced disease resistance in transgenic tobacco and banana
TLDR
The results suggest that MSI-99 can be useful in imparting enhanced disease resistance in transgenic plants and tobacco plants transformed with pMSI168 showed enhanced resistance against Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, Alternaria alternata and Botrytis cinerea. Expand
Petunia Floral Defensins with Unique Prodomains as Novel Candidates for Development of Fusarium Wilt Resistance in Transgenic Banana Plants
TLDR
The results suggest that high-level constitutive expression of floral defensins having distinctive prodomains is an efficient strategy for development of fungal resistance in economically important fruit crops like banana. Expand
Expression of hepatitis B surface antigen in potato hairy roots
TLDR
This is the first report on the expression of HBsAg in potato hairy roots, developed with two different expression cassettes for hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) expression, used to induce hairy roots. Expand
Induction of hairy roots in Gmelina arborea Roxb. and production of verbascoside in hairy roots
TLDR
Hairy roots of Gmelina arborea infected with wild type Agrobacterium rhizogenes strain ATTCC 15834 showed an ability to synthesize verbascoside, a phenylpropanoid glycoside of medicinal value, and was established. Expand
Establishment of embryogenic cell suspension cultures and Agrobacterium-mediated transformation in an important Cavendish banana cv. Robusta (AAA)
TLDR
This is the first report showing somatic embryogenesis and Agrobacterium tumefaciens mediated transformation using embryogenic cell suspension cultures in an important Cavendish banana cultivar Robusta, and will make possible agronomic improvement of this important commercially grown cultivar by introduction of disease resistance characteristics and antisense-mediated delayed fruit ripening strategies. Expand
Agrobacterium-mediated genetic transformation of embryogenic cell suspension cultures of Santalum album L.
TLDR
This is the first report showing stable high-level expression of a foreign protein using embryogenic cell suspension cultures in S. Santalum album, and it was confirmed that T-DNA into the host genome was confirmed by Southern blot analysis. Expand
