Use of the maize transposonsActivator andDissociation to show that phosphinothricin and spectinomycin resistance genes act non-cell-autonomously in tobacco and tomato seedlings


Cell-autonomous genes have been used to monitor the excision of both endogenous transposons in maize andAntirrhinum, and transposons introduced into transgenic plants. In tobacco andArabidopsis, the streptomycin phosphotransferase (SPT) gene reveals somatic excision of the maize transposonActivator (Ac) as green sectors on a white background in cotyledons… (More)
