  • Publication number: 20180163203
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides compositions and methods for delivering a polynucleotide from the exterior surface of a plant or plant part into the interior of a plant cell. More specifically, the present disclosure relates to compositions comprising at least one polynucleotide and at least one agent that is able to disrupt at least one barrier of the plant or plant part.

  • Patent number: 6891086
    Abstract: A method is provided for transforming Brassica plants to express DNA sequences of interest from the plant cell plastid. The method allows the transformation of Brassica plant tissue with heterologous DNA constructs. Such DNA constructs comprise, in the 5? to 3? direction of transcription, a promoter region functional in a plant plastid and a DNA sequence of interest. The invention further provides for Brassica cells in which the plastids contain heterologous DNA constructs.
    Type: Grant

    Inventors: Sumita Chaudhuri, Janette V. Oakes
  • Publication number: 20030106094
    Abstract: A method is provided for transforming Brassica plants to express DNA sequences of interest from the plant cell plastid. The method allows the transformation of Brassica plant tissue with heterologous DNA constructs. Such DNA constructs comprise, in the 5′ to 3′ direction of transcription, a promoter region functional in a plant plastid and a DNA sequence of interest. The invention further provides for Brassica cells in which the plastids contain heterologous DNA constructs.

  • Patent number: 6538181
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to the modification of reserve polysaccharides in plants. Specifically, it has been found that host plants can be successfully transformed with a nucleic acid sequence capable of expressing a chimeric reserve polysaccharide modification enzyme gene sequence which will synthesize novel reserve polysaccharides in plants or convert the transformed plant's endogenous starch reserves to novel starch degradation products.
