We have developed transgene pyramided rice lines, endowed with enhanced resistance to major sapsucking insects, through sexual crosses made between two stable transgenic rice lines containing Allium sativum (asal) and Galanthus nivalis (gna) lectin genes. Presence and expression of asal and gna genes in pyramided lines were confirmed by PCR and western blot analyses. Segregation analysis of F2 progenies disclosed digenic (9:3:3:1) inheritance of the transgenes. Homozygous F3 plants carrying… CONTINUE READING
