Interspecific RNA interference of SHOOT MERISTEMLESS-like disrupts Cuscuta pentagona plant parasitism.
(Plant Cell., 2012-07)
Infection of crop species by parasitic plants is a major agricultural hindrance resulting in substantial crop losses worldwide. Parasitic plants establish vascular connections with the host plant via structures termed ...
Lack of GFP Trafficking from Transgenic Nicotiana benthamiana to Parasitizing Cuscuta pentagona
(IDOSI Publications, 2010)
This work reports lack of GFP transport from transgenic N. bethamiana under the control of constitutive promoter CAMV 35S to Cuscuta pentagona. The data on N. bethamiana and C. pentagona host-parasite system suggests ...
Striga parasitizes transgenic hairy roots of Zea mays and provides a tool for studying plant-plant Interactions.
(Plant Methods, 2012)
Background Striga species are noxious root hemi-parasitic weeds that debilitate cereal production in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). Control options for Striga are limited and developing Striga resistant crop germplasm is ...
A new double right border binary vector for producing marker-free transgenic plants.
(BMC Research Notes, 2013-11-08)
Once a transgenic plant is developed, the selectable marker gene (SMG) becomes unnecessary in the plant. In fact, the continued presence of the SMG in the transgenic plant may cause unexpected pleiotropic effects as well ...
