Agrobacterium-mediated genetic transformation of pigeonpea [Cajanus cajan (L.) Millisp] for pod borer resistance: Optimization of protocol

Published on

Pod borer is a serious pest of pigeonpea. It was observed
that borer infected flower buds do not produce any seed
but only pods. In the present investigation, successful
transfer and expression of cryIIAa gene was made through
Agrobacterium into a popular pigeonpea variety, Konkan
Tur-1. of pigeonpea through -mediated gene transfer
method. The ability to regenerate in vitro as well use of
positive selection system may provide means for recovery
of transgenic pigeonpea.
