London plane tree (Platanus acerifolia Willd.) is an important tree in urban landscaping but it suffers from a number of negative traits which genetic engineering could be used to address. As with many woody species, P. acerifolia has appeared recalcitrant to genetic transformation. However, the recent development of a method for regenerating shoots from P. acerifolia leaf explants suggests that such material could be a target for gene-transfer. Using an Agrobacterium tumefaciens strain in… CONTINUE READING
