Transgenic rice indica varieties Basmati 370 and M 7 expressing the novel cry2A (Bt) insecticidal gene were generated by particle bombardment. Molecular and biochemical analyses in R0 and R1 populations confirmed stable integration and expression of this novel Bt transgene. We estimated that the gene product was expressed up to 5% of total leaf protein. Insect feeding bioassays demonstrated that the Cry2A protein was effective against the yellow stem borer and the rice leaf folder, two major… CONTINUE READING
