Adaptation of the short protocol described bySteve Clough and Andrew Bent, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
In Planta Transformation of Arabidopsis Protocols The plant transformation procedures described involve floral dip, vacuum infiltration, and spraying. They yield transformants at frequencies ranging up to several percent, with the most common frequency being 0.1%-1%.
Root Transformation of Arabidopsis Protocol Arabidopsis can be stably transformed using Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transfer of T-DNA. We describe the generation of transgenic plants via root transformation in tissue culture, which can be useful for transforming sterile mutants.
Simple Arabidopsis Transformation Protocol Protocol for a simplified Arabidopsis transformation. Found that the MS salts, hormone, etc. make no difference, that OD of bacteria doesn't make much of a difference, that vacuum doesn't even make much of a difference as long as you have a decent amount of surfactant present. Plant health is still a major factor - healthy fecund plants make a big difference! With this method you should be able to achieve transformation rates above 1%.
Vectors and Agrobacterium Hosts for Arabidopsis Transformation Protocol A. tumefaciens is a soil-dwelling bacterium that transforms normal plant cells into tumor-forming cells by inserting a piece of bacterial DNA (the transfer, or "T," DNA) into the plant cell genome. The Ti plasmid also carries many of the transfer functions for mobilizing the T-DNA. This article provides a brief discussion of the principles of T-DNA transformation, including consideration of T-DNA vectors and their hosts.
