We compared the efficiency of two Agrobacterium tumefaciens strains, AGL 1 and KYRT1, for producing transgenic pea plants. KYRT1 is a disarmed strain of Chry5 that has been shown to be highly tumourigenic on soybean. The efficacies of the strains were compared using cotyledon explants from three pea genotypes and two plasmids. The peas were sourced from field-grown plants over three Southern Hemisphere summer seasons. Overall, KYRT1 was found to be on average threefold more efficient than AGL 1… CONTINUE READING
