Agrobacterium-mediated in planta transformation of maize germ cells

Agrobacterium-mediated in planta transformation of maize germ cells A transfer DNA (T-DNA) carrying the marker gene nptII was detected in the genomes of diploid and haploid maize plants obtained after the treatment of pistil filaments with a suspension of Agrobacterium during artificial pollination. PCR analysis of total DNA isolated from 155 canamycin-resistant diploid F1 seedlings revealed T-DNA insertions in the genomes of 111 plants (32.7% of the total number of analyzed seeds). The example of matroclinal haploids was used to demonstrate that T-DNA may be transported to the egg cell by the growing pollen tube (PT). Twelve out of 16 analyzed haploid plants contained the T-DNA insertion. The possible mechanism of the transfer of the Agrobacterium T-DNA to the maize genome during pollination is discussed.
