Rice plants were genetically transformed with a glutelin A antisensegene construct that was characterized by eight tandem repeats of a ca.0.3 kb fragment at the 5′ end of full-length glutelin AcDNA.Two transgenic rice lines, H39-59 and H75-3, homozygous for the glutelin Aantisense gene were selected from T2 plants, and their T4generation was examined. When grown in an open paddy field, T4plantsof both transgenic lines showed 20% to 40% reduction in theglutelin content of seeds and an increase… CONTINUE READING
