Development of insect-resistant transgenic cauliflower plants expressing the trypsin inhibitor gene isolated from local sweet potato

Abstract

Agrobacterium-mediated transformation was used to introduce a trypsin inhibitor gene into Taiwan cauliflower (Brassica oleracea var. botrytis L.) cultivars. The TI gene was isolated from a well-adapted Taiwan sweet potato cultivar and was expected to be especially effective in combating local pests. In vitro regeneration studies indicated that 4-day-old… (More)
