  • Main conclusionGenetically engineered rice lines with broad insecticidal properties against major lepidopteran pests were generated using a synthetic, truncated form of vegetative insecticidal protein (Syn vip3BR) fromBacillus thuringiensis.The selectable marker gene and the redundant transgene(s) were eliminated through Cre/loxmediated recombination and genetic segregation to make consumer friendlyBt-rice.For sustainable resistance against lepidopteran insect pests, chloroplast targeted… CONTINUE READING
