ABSTRACT This study reports the combination of a transgene-mediated defense mechanism with a conventionally bred resistance in order to improve apple scab resistance. Two cultivars of apple (Galaxy, scab-susceptible, and Ariane, carrying the Vf resistance gene) were transformed with endochitinase and exochitinase genes derived from the biocontrol fungus Trichoderma atroviride. The obtained transgenic lines were analyzed for the expression of both genes and resistance to two races of the… CONTINUE READING
