A genetic transformation procedure for Cryptomeria japonica was developed after co-cultivation of embryogenic tissues with the disarmed Agrobacterium tumefaciens strain C58/pMP90, which harbours the visual reporter gene sgfp and two selectable marker genes, hpt and nptII . We were able to...
Plant biotechnology is founded on the principles of cellular totipotency and genetic transformation, which can be traced back to the Cell Theory of Matthias Jakob Schleiden and Theodor Schwann, and the discovery of genetic transformation in bacteria by Frederick Griffith, respectively. On the...
Cryopreservation is the most suitable long-term storage method for genetic resources of vegetatively maintained crops like potato. In the Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research (IPK) the DMSO droplet method is applied, and so far more than 1000 accessions are cryopreserved...
Emerging evidence suggests that plants and animals may share certain biochemical commonalities in apoptosis, or programmed cell death (PCD) pathways, though plants lack key animal apoptosis related genes. In plants, PCD has many important functions including a role in immunity and resistance to...
A vitrification based cryopreservation technique for storage of in vitro shoot tips of papaya has been tested to ensure applicability across a range of genotypes and to assess the stability of both genotype and phenotype of such clonal material following cryopreservation. Shoot tips of 12...
The first successful attempt to produce stably transformed castor plants through direct gene transfer using particle gun (BioRad) is described. Decotyledonated embryos from mature seeds were germinated and the embryonic axis was induced to proliferate on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium...
A novel anther-specific chalcone synthase-like gene, TaCHSL1 , was isolated and characterized. The TaCHSL1 transcript was detected only within the tapetum during the “free” and early vacuolated microspore stages in both wheat and triticale. Sequence analysis indicated that the 41.8 kDa...
Plant hormones influence the key parameters that contribute to crop yield, including biomass, branching and seed number. We tested manipulation of cytokinin signaling as an avenue for influencing these growth parameters. Here we report a full-length cDNA coding for a cytokinin binding protein,...
Dwarf genotypes of the economically important flowering potted plant Kalanchoe blossfeldiana were developed by molecular breeding. Root inducing (Ri)-lines were regenerated by applying CPPU to the hairy roots, which were produced by inoculating leaf explants with a wild-type Agrobacterium...
The liverwort, Marchantia polymorpha L., belongs to a group of basal land plants and is an emerging model for plant biology. We established a procedure to prepare sporangia of M. polymorpha under laboratory conditions by promoting its transition to reproductive development by far-red light...
