Agricultural and Environmental Biotechnology Abstracts

 
 
This database is no longer actively updated. As of 2007, its content has been combined with Medical and Pharmaceutical Biotechnology Abstracts and BioEngineering Abstracts into a single database Biotechnology Research Abstracts in the Biotechnology and Bioengineering Abstracts into a single database Biotechnology and Bioengineering Abstracts database cluster.
New research is revealing numerous uses for biotechnological techniques in the food industry, agriculture, and the environment. By the turn of the century, the market for such products and applications is expected to exceed ten billion dollars and this new database gathers the world literature in which molecular biology and genetics are applied to these areas. The database covers agricultural products involving both plants and animals, new applications across the food industry, and wide-ranging environmental developments. Plant genome studies, now the focus of major research initiatives around the world, are examined in detail. Food, chemical, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology companies as well as scientists and other professionals working in agricultural and environmental fields will find information essential to their work in this database.

    Abstract
    After pre-culture and treatment of osmosis, zygotic embryos of peanut (Arachis hypogaea L.) were transformed via particle bombardment with a plasmid containing a Bluetongue VP2 gene (BTVP2) comprising neutralizing epitopes. Selection for Kanamycin resistant calluses and somatic embryos was initiated at 12th day post-bombardment on medium containing 25 mg/L Kanamycin. Under continuous selection, 12.38% Kanamycin resistant plantlets were regenerated from bombarded somatic embryos. The presence and integration of BTVP2 DNA in regenerated Kanamycin resistant plants were confirmed by southern hybridization assay using non-radioactive Digoxiginin BTVP2 probe. beta - Glucuronidase (GUS) enzyme activity was detected in transgenic somatic embryos but not from control, non-transformed embryos. The expression of the BTVP2 protein was confirmed through RT-PCR (reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction) using the RNA isolated from the transgenic callus employing BTVP2- specific primers. The production of transgenic peanut was mainly focused on evaluating a newly improved somatic embryogenesis regeneration system as well as the gene transfer method and to produce the Bluetongue outer coat protein that comprises the neutralizing epitopes.
