Production of transgenic tomato plants with the Fe-dependent superoxide dismutase gene


Agrobacterial transformation of tomatoes by an expression vector containing the Fe-SOD gene is carried out. The transgenic status of the transformants obtained is confirmed by PCR analysis. Differences are noted in the cell cycle and ultrastructure of transgenic and nontransgenic plants under the effect of salt stress.
