Optimization of mature embryo based regeneration and genetic transformation of Turkish wheat cultivars

Battal, Abdülhamit
The objective of this study was to optimize tissue culture, transformation and regeneration parameters of mature embryo based culture of Triticum durum cv. Mirzabey 2000 and Triticum aestivum cv. Yüreğir 89. The effects of auxin type of hormone at different concentrations and dark incubation periods on regeneration capacity were evaluated. Two different hormone types 2,4- dichlorophenoxyacetic acid and picloram were used at three different concentrations 2, 4 and 8 mg/l. Mature embryo derived calli were incubated in 6 different induction media at dark for 4 and 6 weeks for initiation of primary callus induction. After dark incubation periods, average callus fresh weight and primary callus induction rate were determined. The primary callus induction rates for 4 weeks and 6 weeks old dark adapted Mirzabey calli incubated was found to be 91 % and 93.25 % respectively. Yüreğir primary callus induction rate was 92.5 % for 6 weeks old calli in 6W2D medium and 86.75 % for 4 weeks old calli in 4W8P medium. The primary calli were transferred to embryogenic callus induction medium. The embryogenic callus formation was 94.88 in 6W2D medium for Mirzabey cultivar. The necrosis was observed at high concentration of 2,4-D for both of cultivars. After embryogenic callus induction, embryogenic calli were transferred into hormone free regeneration medium. The maximum regeneration rate (62.31 %) and culture efficiency (44.13 %) were observed in 4W2D medium for Mirzabey. However, the low regeneration rate was observed for Yüreğir (5 %) in 6W2D medium. The transformation studies were performed by using Obitek Biolab Gene Transfer System. The old and the modified loading units were used for optimization of bombardment pressure and distance for mature embryo based calli transformation. After bombardment of pAHC25 coated gold particles, histochemical GUS assay was performed and blue spots were counted. The transformation efficiency increased to 0.65 fold for 30 bar bombardment pressure and 5.5 fold for 35 bar bombardment by the modified loading unit. The modified loading unit could be used for further transformation studies.


Optimization of tissue culture, generation and agrobacterium mediated transformation parameters in winter wheat cultivars (Kızıltan-91 and Bezostaja-01)
Kavas, Musa; Yücel, Ayşe Meral; Department of Biology (2005)
The objective of this study was to optimize tissue culture and regeneration parameters of immature inflorescence culture of Triticum aestivum cv. Bezostaja- 01 and Triticum durum cv. Kızıltan-91. The effects of callus age and vernalisation time of explants on regeneration success were evaluated. For determination of optimum vernalisation time of immature inflorescence, plants subjected to 4°C for 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 weeks, respectively. Tillers containing immature inflorescences were collected at the same tim...
Analysis and optimization of DNA delivery into chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) seedlings by Agrobacterium tumefacience
AKBULUT, Mikail; Yucel, Meral; Oktem, Hueseyin Avni (2008-04-17)
The main purpose of this study was to develop a non-tissue culture based Agrobacterium mediated transformation method for chickpea. The influences of several factors were investigated on the transfer of -glucuronidase (GUS) gene into chickpea (Cicer arietinum) seedlings during the early stages of Agrobacterium-mediated gene transfer, including cocultivation period in liquid induction medium (2, 8, 16 and 24 h), strains of Agrobacterium tumefaciens (C58C1, EHA105, KYRT1) containing the plasmid pTJK136, devel...
Optimization of selection conditions and agrobacterium mediated transformation of chickpea (cicer arietinum L. cv. Gökçe)
Öz, M. Tufan; Öktem, Hüseyin Avni; Department of Biotechnology (2005)
The objective of this study was to optimize an efficient selection system and Agrobacterium mediated transformation of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.). Cotyledonary node explants of Turkish chickpea cultivar Gökçe were used to determine the effects of selective agents, two antibiotics (Kanamycin, Hygromycin) and two herbicides (PPT, Glyphosate) as well as four antibiotics (Augmentin, Carbenicillin, Cefotaxime, Timentin) for eliminating Agrobacterium on multiple shoot and root induction. Selective agents and a...

The mathematical modelling provides an alternative way for the interpretation and prediction of cellular metabolisms. This study delves into the modelling of lipid biosynthesis pathway and the primary metabolism in the fruit of the oil palm (Elaeis guineensis). Two different data are used for the analysis. In the first dataset, the distribution of carbon flux into the major classes of lipids, i.e., triacylglycerols, diacylglycerols, monoacylglycerols, phospholipids, and free fatty acids, is investigated usi...
Selective Fetal Growth Restriction in Dichorionic Twin Pregnancies: Diagnosis, Natural History, and Perinatal Outcome
Antonakopoulos, Nikolaos; Pateisky, Petra; Liu, Becky; Kalafat, Erkan; Thilaganathan, Baskaran; Khalil, Asma (MDPI AG, 2020-5-9)
This study aims to evaluate the natural history, disease progression, and outcomes in dichorionic twins with selective fetal growth restriction (sFGR) according to different diagnostic criteria and time of onset. Dichorionic twins seen from the first trimester were included. sFGR was classified according to the Delphi consensus, and was compared to the outcomes of those classified by the International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology (ISUOG) diagnostic criteria. Early sFGR occurred before ...
