Abstract

We previously transformed cabbage plants with a Bacillus thuringiensiscry1Ia8 gene. The resulting transgenic plants were able to control both susceptible and Cry1Ac-resistant Plutella xylostella larvae. For practical applications, transgenes should be inherited in a stable and predictable manner....

Abstract

Twenty two soybean genotypes were evaluated for the capacity of embryo initiation, differentiation, maturation and plantlet regeneration using standardized protocols. Among the genotypes, Bragg was to have high response to induction with 91.11% and average 38.40 embryos/callus mass, proliferation...

AbstractFull Text

Digital PCR is a new absolute quantitative method that does not rely on the external standard curves, and it shows broad application prospects in quantified detection of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), evaluation the exogenous gene copy number of GMOs and validation the certified values of...

CAB ReviewFull Text

Western corn rootworm (Diabrotica virgifera virgifera LeConte) and northern corn rootworm (Diabrotica barberi (Smith and Lawrence)) are major pests of maize in the USA. These pests have been managed with a variety of tactics over the last century. Both Diabrotica spp. have adapted to crop rotation...

CAB ReviewFull Text

Plants are being engineered for enhanced ethanol production; however, challenges remain in meeting the demand for bioenergy that is expected to double by 2030. Therefore, targeting carbon accumulation in the form of energy-dense oils in nonseed biomass is considered a superior alternative for...

CAB ReviewFull Text

Many secondary metabolites in plants are involved in a range of plant physiological processes including abiotic stress tolerance. Major polyamine (PA) compounds including putrescine (Put), spermidine (Spd) and spermine (Spm) have structural, functional and regulatory activities that allow them to...
