ISHS Acta Horticulturae 447: III International Symposium on In Vitro Culture and Horticultural  Breeding 

PRODUCTION OF TRANSGENIC TOMATOES EXPRESSING OXALATE OXIDASE

Authors:   L. Dessalegne, A.C. Wetten, P.D.S. Caligari
Keywords:   Lycopersicon esculentum, transformants, enzyme activity, seed progenies, embryo staining method, salt tolerance
Abstract:
A gene coding for the oxalate oxidase enzyme was introduced into tomato cv. Ailsa Craig to determine the response of transformants to salt stress. Selected transformants were evaluated for salt tolerance under glasshouse conditions. They produced more fruits under salt stress than the non-transformed control and the stress influenced the level of enzyme activity in roots and fruits.
