SummarySelectable marker genes play an important role in plant transformation. The level of selection pressure is generally established by generating a kill curve for the selectable marker. In most cases, the lowest concentration which kills all explants is used. This study examined two selectable marker genes, phosphinothricin acetyl transferase (PAT) and hygromycin phosphotransferase (HPT), in transformation of tobacco leaf disks. Experiments to determine the lethal level of the herbicide… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

A binary vector for Agrobacterium mediated plant transformation with new glyphosate tolerant gene as a selectable marker.
TLDR
The results of transformation, regeneration and selection of transgenic tobacco plants with this new vector showed that is a usable and safer plasmid than those carrying the antibiotic resistance gene as a selectable marker. Expand
A high‐throughput transformation system allows the regeneration of marker‐free plum plants (Prunus domestica)
TLDR
It is believed that this is the first report on the production of marker-free plants transformed with a potential agronomically important trait in a Prunus species. Expand
Development and identification of glyphosate-tolerant transgenic soybean via direct selection with glyphosate
TLDR
An improved protocol for development and identification of glyphosate-tolerant transgenic soybeans is provided and the whole cycle of genetic transformation could be shortened to about 3 mon by highly efficient selection with glyphosate during the transformation process. Expand
Temperature influence on stable T-DNA integration in plant cells
TLDR
Although 19°C may be the best temperature for the Agrobacterium transfer machinery, co-culture at 25°C appears beneficial for plant cell susceptibility to infection and for stable T-DNA insertion into the plant chromosomes. Expand
Expression and molecular analysis of DsRed and gfp fluorescent genes in tobacco ( Nicotiana tabacum L . )
Agrobacterium-mediated transformation of tobacco leaf disks with Agrobacterium tumefaciens (A. t.) strain LBA4404 and two plasmids (pCAMBIA1390-DsRed and pART27 2mgfp5ER) was used for introducing redExpand
Agrobacterium-Mediated Transformation of Pomegranate (Punica granatum L.) ‘Yousef Khani’ Using the gus Reporter Gene
TLDR
An efficient Agrobacterium-mediated transformation method was developed for pomegranate, a difficult-to-transform plant, and southern blot analysis confirmed that TDNA was stably integrated into the genome of three out of six PCR-positive plants. Expand
MINIMAL INHIBITORY CONCENTRATION OF HYGROMYCIN FOR SELECTING TRANSFORMED OIL PALM EMBRYOGENIC CALLI
Determination of optimum concentrations for a selection agent is important in obtaining true transformants during the selection stage. In this study, the minimal inhibitory concentrations ofExpand
Production of transgenic diploid Cucumis melo plants
TLDR
This study evaluated the effect of using two different explant types from the proximal portion of melon seeds on the ploidy status (evaluated by flow cytometry) of regenerated plants and determined the transformation efficiencies obtained with these types of explants from four different genotypes. Expand
Early Identification of Stable Transformation Events by Combined Use of Antibiotic Selection and Vital Detection of Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) in Carrot (Daucus carota L.) Callus
TLDR
It is found that the simplicity of carrot-callus-cell transformation, early detection of stable transformants with antibiotic selection, visualization of GFP fluorescence, and molecular analysis of callus tissue (non-photosynthetic tissue) to provide a more efficient way in identifying stable transformant at early stage of carrot transformation.

Evaluation of the uniformity and stability of T-DNA integration and gene expression in transgenic apple plants
TLDR
Although most molecular techniques can reliably detect the presence of transgenic cells, they often fail to detect mixtures of transformed and non-transformed cells, or cells with silenced transgenes. Expand

Evaluation of selectable markers for rice transformation.
TLDR
Comparison of transient expression driven by constitutive and regulated promoters in rice (Oryza sativa) protoplasts found that the 2' promoter of the octopine T-DNA is approximately 3 to 4 times more efficient than the CAMV 35S promoter, and more than 100 times better than two other regulated plant promoters. Expand
T-DNA integration into genomic DNA of rice following Agrobacterium inoculation of isolated shoot apices
TLDR
It is established that the isolated shoot meristem of monocotyledons can be infected and transformed using Agrobacterium, and the use of the actin 1 promoter-based expression vector and an extra-wounding treatment of the merismatic cells appeared to be most effective in promoting transformation. Expand
Engineering herbicide resistance in plants by expression of a detoxifying enzyme
TLDR
Transgenic plants showed complete resistance towards high doses of the commercial formulations of phosphinothricin and bialaphos, presenting a successful approach to obtain herbicide‐resistant plants by detoxification of the herbicide. Expand
Regeneration of herbicide resistant transgenic rice plants following microprojectile-mediated transformation of suspension culture cells
TLDR
It is shown that expression of the bar gene in transgenic rice plants confers resistance to PPT-based herbicide by suppressing an increase of ammonia in plants after spraying with the herbicide. Expand
A simple and general method for transferring genes into plants.
TLDR
This method for producing transformed plants combines gene transfer, plant regeneration, and effective selection for transformants into a single process and should be applicable to plant species that can be infected by Agrobacterium and regenerated from leaf explants. Expand
Generation of Large Numbers of Independently Transformed Fertile Barley Plants
TLDR
A rapid, efficient, and reproducible system to generate large numbers of independently transformed, self-fertile, transgenic barley plants is described and expression of bar in some progeny plants was indicated by resistance to the herbicide Basta. Expand
Hygromycin resistance as an efficient selectable marker for wheat stable transformation
TLDR
The hpt gene was as good as or a better selectable marker than the bar gene with an average efficiency (number of transgenic plants relative to the number of bombarded calli) of 5.5% compared with 2.6% for the bar genes. Expand
Vectors for cloning in plant cells
TLDR
This chapter discusses vectors for cloning in plant cells, recent octopine Ti plasmid-derived vectors and their use to transfer and express foreign genes in plants, and cointegration vectors and binary vectors. Expand
Efficient transformation of rice (Oryza sativa L.) mediated by Agrobacterium and sequence analysis of the boundaries of the T-DNA.
TLDR
A large number of morphologically normal, fertile, transgenic rice plants were obtained by co-cultivation of rice tissues with Agrobacterium tumefaciens, and sequence analysis revealed that the boundaries of the T-DNA in transgenic Rice plants were essentially identical to those intransgenic dicotyledons.
