 en Agrobacterium check for this species in other resources -mediated transient transformation of Mexican prickly poppy ( Argemone mexicana check for this species in other resources L.)

Shoot apex, leaf primordia, leaf sections and roots from Mexican prickly poppy seedlings, were inoculated with Agrobacterium tumefaciens check for this species in other resources harboring the binary vector pCAMBIA2301, which contained the β-glucuronidase (uid A) gene. Histochemical β-glucuronidase (GUS) assay in infected explants showed transient gus gene expression between 3 and 12 days after inoculation. To our knowledge, this is the first report of A. mexicana susceptibility to A. tumefaciens-mediated genetic transformation.

Argemone mexicana, β-glucuronidase, benzylisoquinoline alkaloids, genetic transformation, neomycin phosphotransferase II.
