The production of transgenic potato plants expressing human alpha-interferon using lipofectin-mediated transformation.


The lipofectin system was used to transform potato protoplasts with plasmid DNA (pIG3031), which contains human alpha-interferon cDNA and codes for the selectable neomycin phosphotransferase II gene (NPT II). Both genes are under the control of the bi-directional plant active transcriptional promoter from Agrobacterium tumefaciens T-DNA. The criteria of… (More)
