Oxidative stress in plants by D Inzé( )

12 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written and edited by world-leading scientists, Oxidative Stress in Plants reviews the current knowledge of the mechanisms by which various biotic and abiotic environmental stress conditions produce oxygen radicals
Transformation of plants and soil microorganisms by Kan Wang( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 2004 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past fifty years plant breeders have achieved impressive improvements in yield, quality and disease resistance. These gains suggest that many more modifications might be introduced if appropriate genes can be identified. Current DNA techniques allow the construction of transgenic plants and this important new book reviews the current state of knowledge. A team of leading researchers provide in-depth reviews at the cutting edge of technology for laboratory techniques for the transformation of important soil microorganisms and recalcitrant plants of economic value. The book is divided into three sections: soil microorganisms; cereal crops; and industrially important plants. The most effective methods used to date are compared, and their merits and limitations discussed. Some chapters emphasise case studies and applications. In cases where obstacles remain to be overcome, an overview of progress to date is given. The book will serve as a general guide and reference tool for those working on transformation in microbiology and plant science

La transformation par Agrobacterium rhizogenes étude des plasmides de deux souches à agropine et de la structure de l'ADN-t dans des plantes transformées by Lise Jouanin( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Agrobacterium rhizogenes has the ability to induce hairy root, by inserting part of its root-inducing plasmid (pRi) in the plant genome. Plasmids of agropine-type A. rhizogenes strains HKI (one plasmid, pRiHRI) and A4 (three plasmids, pArA4a, pRiA4 and pArA4c) were cloned in the cosmid PHDG262 and the libraries obtained were used to establish the restriction maps of the plasmids. The pRiHRI (254 Kb)and pRiA4 (250 kb)maps are very quiet similar and are identical in the regions where functions have been localized: T-region, virulence region and origin of replication. pArA4a (1 0 kb) and pRiA4 nave one identical region which can explain their ability to cointegrate to form pArA4c (430 kb). The origins of replication of pRiHRI and pArA4a were localized precisely, they are not homologous and are compatible with A. tumefaciens plasmids. Cosmids containing them were used to construct vectors able to replicate in both E. coli and Agrobacterium. These vectors are maintained stably in Agrobacterium even without selection pressure. The T-UNA structure was studied in regenerated transformed plants (Nicotiana plumbaginifolia, Nicotiana tabacum, Brassica napus and Convolvulus arvensis).The T-DNA consists of two parts: TL and TR which are not contiguous on the Ri plasmid. In all plants studied, except N. tabacum where it is smaller, the size of the TL-DNA is constant (19-20 kb), while the size of the TR-DNA is variable (0 to 30 kb). The TR region includes the agropine synthesis genes and a region homologous to the tms genes in pTi; this last region is not always transferred to the plant genome. The copy number varies from one to four copies and some TL and TR copies are linked in the plant genome. A library of a transformed C. arvensis plant was constructed in Charon 4A and recombinant phages including parts of the T-DNA were selected. The nucleotide sequences of the frontier regions of the TL-DNA were determined in both the plasmid and in the phages. Two direct repeats of 25 bp, highly homologous to those observed in Ti plasmids were found in pRi, at or near the TL-DNA borders. The TR-DNA is inverted in the plant genome, as compared to its orientation relative to the TL-DNA position in the Ri plasmid. The use of the Ri plasmid as a vector for genetic engireering of higher plants is discussed in conclusion
