 An acidic endochitinase gene (pcht28) isolated from Lycopersicon chilense was introduced into tomato (L. esculentum) through Agrobacterium-mediated transformation, using the CAMV 35S promoter. Transgenic plants demonstrated a high level of constitutive expression of pcht28 and chitinase enzyme activity. Kanamycin-resistant R1 plants (resulting from self-pollination of transgenic plants) as well as R2 plants were evaluated for their tolerance to Verticillium dahliae (race 1 and 2 for R1 plants… CONTINUE READING
