We have developed an efficient rice transformation system that uses only rice genome-derived components. The transgenic ‘Koshihikari’ rice, low-glutelin mutant a123, is capable of accumulating large amounts of bioactive peptides in the endosperm. Agrobacterium-mediated transformation using the mutated-acetolactate synthase (mALS) gene expressed under the… CONTINUE READING
