Advances In Insect Control: The Role Of Transgenic Plants by Nadine B Carozzi

By Nadine B Carozzi

The sphere of plant genetic engineering has arisen from the laboratory and into the industry position as a expertise to supply farmers and shoppers with better plants. 1996 marks a turning aspect because the first genetically engineered vegetation to regulate agronomically very important pests are registered for advertisement sale. normally it has taken over a decade to strengthen commercially practicable items. This booklet serves either as an replace of present applied sciences which have been confirmed profitable for engineering insect tolerant vegetation and an summary of recent applied sciences which are being pursued for the advance of latest genetically engineered plants sooner or later. The publication comprises an introductory bankruptcy at the around the globe significance of insect difficulties in vegetation and the benefits of genetically engineered plants over conventional breeding; reports insect keep an eye on ideas which are being develpoed for genetically engineered plants; and offers an summary of many new components that wil result in new insect regulate brokers within the subsequent decade.

Example text

The movement of bacterial insecticidal proteins into plants is such an example. The second advantage is that insecticidal genes are often determined by one dominant gene whereas a similar trait in varieties related to the crop of interest are often encoded by multiple genes, possibly on different chromosomes. The direct introduction of a single dominant gene into commercial crop varieties has several additional advantages over breeding for a multigene trait. For instance, if the gene is introduced directly into elite, commercial germplasm, there is no linkage drag that is often associated with breeding traits from wild relatives.

Perhaps this continuous remodeling explains the ecological success of Bt, with new combinations of crystal proteins providing access to new niches (Lambert and Peferoen, 1992). In 1989, Höfte and Whiteley proposed a nomenclature and classification scheme for the 42 crystal protein genes sequences known at that time. Based on their insecticidal activity the crystal protein genes were ordered in four groups: Lepidopteraspecific (type I); Lepidoptera- and Diptera-specific (type II); Coleoptera-specific (type III); and Diptera-specific (type IV).
