Optimization of the conditions for Casuarina cunninghamiana Miq. genetic transformation mediated by Agrobacterium tumefaciens

Using epicotyl fragments of the actinorhizal tree Casuarina cunninghamiana and the disarmed strain of Agrobacterium tumefaciens C58C1 (pGV2260) containing the pBIN19-35S-GUSINT binary vector, a method for the genetic transformation of C. cunninghamiana was established. Transformed cells were initially selected for 2 weeks on nutrient medium supplemented… CONTINUE READING
