Amenability of castor to an Agrobacterium-mediated in planta transformation strategy using a cry1AcF gene for insect tolerance

Abstract

Agrobacterium tumefaciens mediated in planta transformation protocol was developed for castor, Ricinus communis. Two-day-old seedlings were infected with Agrobacterium strain EHA105/pBinBt8 harboring cry1AcF and established in the greenhouse. Screening the T1 generation seedlings on 300 mg L−1 kanamycin identified the putative transformants. Molecular and… (More)
