Chemical-based selection for plant transformation is associated with a number of real and perceived problems that might be avoided through visual selection. We have used green fluorescent protein (GFP), as a visual selectable marker to produce transformed papaya ( Carica papaya ) plants following...
The phytohormone ethylene is involved in many developmental processes, including leaf and flower senescence. Ethylene is perceived by plants through receptors that trigger the downstream signal transduction pathway. The mutated ethylene receptor ERS1 (ethylene response sensor) from Arabidopsis is...
