Anther-specific expression of ipt gene in transgenic tobacco and its effect on plant development


Isopentenyl transferase (ipt) gene from Agrobacterium tumefaciens T-DNA was placed under the control of a TA29 promoter which expresses specifically in anther. The chimeric TA29-ipt gene was transferred to tobacco plants. During flowering, mRNA of the ipt gene in the anthers of the transgenic plants accumulated and the level of iPA + iPs increased 3–4-fold… (More)
