Potato is one of the main targets for genetic improvement by gene transfer. The aim of the present study was to establish a robust protocol for the genetic transformation of three dihaploid and four economically important cultivars of potato using Agrobacterium tumefaciens carrying the in vivo screenable reporter gene for green fluorescent protein (gfp) and the marker gene for neomycin phosphotransferase (nptII). Stem and leaf explants were used for transformation by Agrobacterium tumefaciens… Expand
Generating marker free transgenic potato cultivars with an hairpin construct of PVY coat protein.
TLDR
To produce marker-free transgenic potato resistant to PVY by using a construct generating self-complementary hairpin RNAs, a robust protocol for the genetic transformation of economically important cultivars of potato by using gfp and nptII genes is established and applied. Expand

Development and bioassay of transgenic Chinese cabbage expressing potato proteinase inhibitor II gene
TLDR
Transgenic Chinese cabbage expressing the potato proteinase inhibitor II gene (pinII) and bioassayed the pest-repelling ability of these transgenic plants to show vigorous PPT resistance were attempted and confirmed by PCR and genomic Southern blotting. Expand
Evidence for stable transformation of wheat by floral dip in Agrobacterium tumefaciens
TLDR
Three transformants in the hard red germplasm line Crocus are presented that have been characterized thoroughly at the molecular level over three to six generations and show Mendelian segregation in the T2. Expand
Regeneration of transgenic plants expressing the GFP gene from rape cotyledonary and leaf explants: Effects of the genotype and ABA
TLDR
PCR analysis of seed generation of transformants showed that some plants did not follow the Mendelian inheritance of a monogenic trait (transgene) in self-pollinated plants, which could be explained as a result of meiotic recombination or production of genotypic chimeric organisms at regeneration.

Using quantitative real-time PCR to detect chimeras in transgenic tobacco and apricot and to monitor their dissociation
TLDR
This work has developed a rapid and reliable method to detect and estimate the level of chimeras in transgenic tobacco and apricot plants and can be extended to monitor the dissociation of Chimeras and the recovery of uniformly-transformed plants. Expand

Transformation of wild Solanum species resistant to late blight by using reporter gene gfp and msh2 genes
TLDR
Green fluorescent protein reporter gene and nptII marker gene were used to optimize Agrobacterium tumefaciens (agro) mediated transformation of wild Solanum genotypes resistant to late blight and it was shown that gfp is a valuable and elegant tool for monitoring the efficiency of transformation or the occur- rence of chimera in all genotypes.

Use of the GFP reporter as a vital marker for Agrobacterium-mediated transformation of sugar beet (Beta vulgaris L.)
TLDR
It was concluded that the sgfp-S65T gene can be used as a vital marker for noninvasive screening of cells and shoots for transformation, and that it has potential for the development of selectable marker-free transgenic sugar beet. Expand
Technical Advance: Stable chloroplast transformation in potato: use of green fluorescent protein as a plastid marker.
TLDR
Development of a high frequency leaf-based regenera- tion system, a stringent selection scheme and optimization of biolistic transformation protocol were critical for recovery of plastid transformants. Expand
Characterisation of regenerants obtained under selective conditions after Agrobacterium-mediated transformation of citrus explants reveals production of silenced and chimeric plants at unexpected high frequencies
TLDR
The results show that inefficient selection could be attributed to the protection of the non-transformed cells from the selective agent by the surrounding transformed cells, and to the persistence of kanamycin-resistance Agrobacterium in explant tissues over long periods of time after co-cultivation. Expand
Routine utilization of green fluorescent protein as a visual selectable marker for cereal transformation
TLDR
Investigations were carried out to determine if the green fluorescent protein gene could be utilized alone as a visual screenable marker to produce stably transformed, fertile oat plants, demonstrating efficiency and repeatability of the selection system. Expand
Green fluorescent protein as a screenable marker to increase the efficiency of generating transgenic woody fruit plants
TLDR
GFP-expressing shoots have been observed in citrus explants co-cultivated with Agrobacterium but cultured in a medium without the selective agent kanamycin, which opens the possibility to rescue the transgenic sectors and to regenerate transgenic plants without using selectable marker genes conferring antibiotic or herbicide resistance.

Transient and Stable Expression of the Firefly Luciferase Gene in Plant Cells and Transgenic Plants
TLDR
Although light was detected in most organs in intact, transgenic plants (leaves, stems, and roots), the pattern of luminescence appeared to reflect both the organ-specific distribution of Luciferase and the pathway for uptake of luciferin through the vasculature of the plant. Expand
Crop Improvement through Modification of the Plant's Own Genome
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a plant-derived (P-) DNA fragment can be used to replace the universally employed Agrobacterium transfer (T-) DNA and represent the first example of genetically engineered plants that only contain native DNA. Expand

This system does not require genetic segregation or site-specific DNA-deletion systems to remove marker genes, and may provide a reliable and efficient tool for generating transgenic plants for commercial use, especially in vegetatively propagated species like potato and cassava. Expand
