Effects of Auxin and Source of Explants on Callus Induction of Tropical Maize
Induction of callus from explants is a critical process in regeneration, micropropagation and transformation of plants. Formation of callus from plant tissues on culture is affected by different factors. This study sought ...
Recovery of amiRNA3-PARP1 transgenic maize plants using a binary vector having the biosafe PMI Gene
(African Crop Science Society, 2014)
Positive plant selectable marker genes are commonly used in plant transformation because they not only enhance the frequency of generation transgenic tissues but are considered biosafe, unlike antibiotic or herbicide ...
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 ...
