Expression of multiple insecticidal genes confers broad resistance against a range of different rice pests

Abstract

We report the simultaneous introduction of three insecticidal genes (the Bt genes cry1Ac and cry2A, and the snowdrop lectin gene gna) into commercially important indica rice varieties M7 and Basmati 370, by particle bombardment. Transgenic plants expressed Cry1Ac, Cry2A and GNA at different levels, either singly or in combination at 0.03–1%, 0.01–0.5% and 0… (More)
