Tobacco transformed with fission yeast mitotic activator
Transformation event unknown
Plants of Nicotiana tabacum were transformed with cdc25 gene from Schizosaccharomyces pombe under constitutive promotor 35S CaMV, together with an nptII gene for resistance to kanamycin. The transformation with the gene cdc25 significantly speeds up plant development and flowering earliness.
The term “Recipient organism” refers to an organism (either already modified or non-modified) that was subjected to genetic modification, whereas “Parental organisms” refers to those that were involved in cross breeding or cell fusion.
Nicotiana tabacum L. cv. Samsun
