Development and evaluation of transgenic plants containing genes that confer insecticidal activity can be a labor-intensive and time-consuming process. Transformed plants require months of growth before they can be analyzed. Transient gene expression by plant viral vectors offers an alternative. Using this approach, infected plants can be screened after only two weeks. Genes coding for the enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP), the Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) Cry1Ac toxin and a wound… CONTINUE READING
