An efficient transient assays system using Agrobacterium-mediated transformation of onion (Allium cepa) epidermal cells

Published on

In this study, the Agrobacterium infection medium, infection
duration, detergent, and cell density were optimized. The
sorghum-based infection medium (SbIM), 10-20 min
infection time, addition of 0.01% Silwet L-77, and
Agrobacterium optical density at 600 nm (OD600), improved
the competence of onion epidermal cells to support
Agrobacterium infection at >90% efficiency. Cyclindependent kinase D-2 (CDKD-2) and cytochrome c-type
biogenesis protein (CYCH), protein-protein interactions
were localized. The optimized procedure is a quick and
efficient system for examining protein subcellular
localization and protein-protein interaction.
