Abstract

In the current work we present a review of scientific literature concerning methods of obtaining transgenic bovine embryo. Based on the current data a conclusion can be made that all listed methods of transgenesis have certain limits in application to bovine oocytes and embryos that significantly...

Abstract

Tobacco hornworm (Manduca sexta, THW) is a voracious pest of tomato and potato. StZFP2 is a Q-type C2H2 zinc finger transcription factor (TF) that is induced upon wounding and infestation. Previous work has shown that Q-type C2H2 TFs are involved in stress responses and when over expressed, can...

Abstract

The fall armyworm, Spodoptera frugiperda (J.E.Smith.), is an important pest that has developed resistance to Bt corn in several countries. In this study, leaf-tissue bioassays and whole-plant tests were conducted to evaluate the performance of a Bt-susceptible (aabb), a Cry1A.105/Cry2Ab2 dual-gene...

Genetics has long played a role in the history of insect pest management, and changes in the genetic methods used reflect changes that have occurred in the field itself over time. Beginning from simple collections of mutations and the development of chromosome linkage maps, many of the early...
