Rice transformation: bombardment

Rice transformation: bombardment Bombardment-based methodology is responsible for the effective genetic manipulation of major cereals including rice. Many groups reported significant advances on various aspects of rice molecular biology and genetic engineering using procedures based on bombardment technology. Molecular and genetic characterization of large numbers of these plants (more than 500 independent transgenic plants) provided information on structure, expression and stability of integrated DNA through multiple generations. Such evaluations were carried out in the greenhouse and in the field. Stability of expression was found to be dependent on the nature of the promoter and the transgene, and in specific cases on gene copy number. Direct DNA transfer utilizing particle bombardment for the delivery of foreign DNA into rice tissue results in the recovery of large numbers of independently derived transgenic plants in a variety-independent fashion. Gene copy number, level and stability of expression of transgenes can be compared to other DNA delivery methods, direct or indirect, including Agrobacterium-mediated gene transfer. In this paper, the technology is summarized and discussed in terms of present and future applications, including field trials and potential commercialization of transgenic rice expressing a number of genes of agronomic interest such as pest and herbicide resistance. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Plant Molecular Biology Springer Journals
