Agrobacterium tumefaciens-Mediated Transformation of Rosa hybrida using the Green Fluorescent Protein (GFP) Gene Academic Article uri icon


  • Embryogenic calluses of Rosa hybrida cultivar Tineke were transformed with Agrobacterium tumefaciens strain LBA4404 containing the binary vector pBIN m-gfp5-ER into which the virE/virG genes had been inserted. Visualization of GFP-expressing cells enabled visual selection of dividing, embryogenic cell clusters that were transgenic. When the Agrobacterium strain with the bifunctional fusion marker containing additional virE/virG genes was used, the number of green fluorescent calluses increased. Transformation of the GFP-expressing rose plants was confirmed by Southern blot analysis.
