Transgenic Tobacco Plants Expressing Bacterial Genes for Thermostable Glucanases

Transgenic Tobacco Plants Expressing Bacterial Genes for Thermostable Glucanases It is shown that bacterial genes for thermostable β-glucanases are expressed retaining their activity and substrate specificity. The leader peptide of the carrot extensin exerts effective secretion of the bacterial enzymes into the intercellular space of the plant tissue. Expression of the bacterial gene for β-1,3-glucanase in plant tissues alters their morphogenetic potential. Regeneration of shoots from the calli of these plant lines requires a six- to eightfold increase in cytokinin (6-BAP) concentration in comparison with the control lines and the transgenic lines expressing β-1,3-1,4-glucanase.

Abstract

It is shown that bacterial genes for thermostable β-glucanases are expressed retaining their activity and substrate specificity. The leader peptide of the carrot extensin exerts effective secretion of the bacterial enzymes into the intercellular space of the plant tissue. Expression of the bacterial gene for β-1,3-glucanase in plant tissues alters their morphogenetic potential. Regeneration of shoots from the calli of these plant lines requires a six- to eightfold increase in cytokinin (6-BAP) concentration in comparison with the control lines and the transgenic lines expressing β-1,3-1,4-glucanase. Rooting of transgenic plants expressing the bacterial gene for β-1,3-glucanase occurs much faster. The transgenic plants obtained in the study are proposed as model objects for investigating the role of glucanases in plants.
