Genetic transformation via Agrobacterium-mediated methodology has been used in many sorghum studies. However, the transformation efficiency still varies significantly due to high dependence on sorghum genotypes and technical expertise. In this article, we describe a sorghum transformation procedure in sufficient detail using a public genotype, P898012. This system utilizes a standard binary transgenic vector carrying the bar gene as a selectable marker and immature embryos as starting explants. Glufosinate is employed as the selective agent during callus and shoot induction. This procedure is relatively rapid, efficient, highly reproducible, and should be applicable for many other sorghum genotypes. © 2018 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

Genetic transformation plays a key role in deciphering regulation of agronomic traits at molecular level in rice, a model monocot cereal crop. Here we describe an efficient and fast protocol for produ...
Agrobacterium-mediated transformation is a powerful strategy for plant genetic engineering. However, the transformation efficiency of some grain legume crops is generally low. In this chapter, we desc...
Microalgae are photosynthetic microorganisms widely used for the production of highly valued compounds, and recently they have been shown to be promising as a system for the heterologous expression of...
Most reliable transformation protocols for cereal crops, including sorghum (Sorghum bicolor L. Moench), rely on the use of immature embryo explants to generate embryogenic callus cells that are then t...
First publications of successful Agrobacterium-mediated transformation of tobacco were published more than 30 years ago. Protocols for Agrobacterium-based transformation as well as biolistic bombardme...
Research has demonstrated that there is a relationship between malnourishment and insufficient production of pancreatic enzymes, such as α-amylase which digests starch into glucose. Starc...
Given the interest in gluten-free foods and discovering dietary means to prevent metabolic disorders, this study was designed to determine the glycemic responses of four (4) grains and flo...
Protein is the key determinant of growth and bodily functions. The quality of food proteins depend on their amino acid content and the amount of amino acids used by the body to make protei...
Corn-soy vitamin and mineral fortified blended foods (FBFs) are primarily used for food aid, although sorghum and cowpea may be suitable alternative FBF commodities. The objective of the M...
To evaluate the effect of onyx sorghum on blood glucose levels in patients with type 2 diabetes (T2DM).
Production of new arrangements of DNA by various mechanisms such as assortment and segregation, CROSSING OVER; GENE CONVERSION; GENETIC TRANSFORMATION; GENETIC CONJUGATION; GENETIC TRANSDUCTION; or mixed infection of viruses.
Change brought about to an organisms genetic composition by unidirectional transfer (TRANSFECTION; TRANSDUCTION, GENETIC; CONJUGATION, GENETIC, etc.) and incorporation of foreign DNA into prokaryotic or eukaryotic cells by recombination of part or all of that DNA into the cell's genome.
The naturally occurring transmission of genetic information between organisms, related or unrelated, circumventing parent-to-offspring transmission. Horizontal gene transfer may occur via a variety of naturally occurring processes such as GENETIC CONJUGATION; GENETIC TRANSDUCTION; and TRANSFECTION. It may result in a change of the recipient organism's genetic composition (TRANSFORMATION, GENETIC).
An anti-CTLA-4 ANTIGEN monoclonal antibody initially indicated for the treatment of certain types of metastatic MELANOMA. Its mode of actions may include blocking of CTLA-4 mediated inhibition of CYTOTOXIC T LYMPHOCYTES, allowing for more efficient destruction of target tumor cells.
The introduction of functional (usually cloned) GENES into cells. A variety of techniques and naturally occurring processes are used for the gene transfer such as cell hybridization, LIPOSOMES or microcell-mediated gene transfer, ELECTROPORATION, chromosome-mediated gene transfer, TRANSFECTION, and GENETIC TRANSDUCTION. Gene transfer may result in genetically transformed cells and individual organisms.
Recombinant DNA is the formation of a novel DNA sequence by the formation of two DNA strands. These are taken from two different organisms. These recombinant DNA molecules can be made with recombinant DNA technology. The procedure is to cut the DNA of ...
Bioinformatics is the application of computer software and hardware to the management of biological data to create useful information. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information which can then be applied...
