Rol genes alter hormonal requirements for protoplast growth and modify the expression of an auxin responsive promoter


Growth characteristics of tobacco protoplasts containing rolA linked to its own promoter, or the rolB, or rolC genes of Agrobacterium rhizogenes linked to the Cauliflower Mosaic Virus 35S RNA promoter were compared with those from untransformed plants. RolA protoplasts require auxin and cytokinin for callus formation. Protoplasts overexpressing rolB and C… (More)
