‘Galia’ muskmelon (Cucumis melo L. var. reticulatus Ser.) has been recalcitrant to transformation by Agrobacterium tumefaciens. Transformation of the ‘Galia’ male parental line, ‘Krymka’, with an ACC oxidase (CMACO-1) gene in antisense orientation is described herein. Explants were transformed using A. tumefaciens strain ABI, which contained a vector… CONTINUE READING
