Directed excision of a transgene from the plant genome


The effectiveness of loxP-Cre directed excision of a transgene was examined using phenotypic and molecular analyses. Two methods of combining the elements of this system, re-transformation and cross pollination, were found to produce different degrees of excision in the resulting plants. Two linked traits, β-glucuronidase (GUS) and a gene encoding… (More)
