Arabidopsis: A Practical Approach (Practical Approach by Zoe A. Wilson

By Zoe A. Wilson

Arabidopsis has lengthy been said because the 'Botanical Drosophila' with its small genome, low degrees of repetitive DNA, small measurement and speedy new release time it's a great molecular genetic instrument for the research of improvement in larger crops. Arabidopsis: a realistic Approach presents an advent to many of the key options required for using Arabidopsis as an experimental method. It provides a simple creation to the optimum progress stipulations and genetic assets on hand for Arabidopsis, how this fabric could be dealt with, maintained and used. person chapters describe recommendations for the id, mapping (using multi-marker strains and recombinant inbreds), and characterisation of alternative mutants through microscopy, molecular cytogenetics and gene expression research. varied cloning concepts, utilizing transposons, T-DNA and map place are defined intimately. Sequencing of the Arabidopsis genome could be accomplished in 2000 and bioinformatics are of key value; the instruments which are on hand and the place they are often came upon on the internet are presented.

Example text

Reporter genes are used to monitor transposition and to select plants carrying transposed elements. Transposon tagged lines offer several advantages over the use of standard T-DNA lines (see Chapter 7). e. direct insertion, promoter/enhancer traps, and gene traps), they can also be used to move around the genome. This means that it is possible to generate large numbers of novel insertion events through rounds of transposition. Remobilization of the element, resulting in reversion of the mutation, provides a rapid means of establishing that a mutation is caused by the insertion.

Used in the procedure under running water for half an hour. 6. Transfer the seeds to 3MM paper and allow to dry overnight. 7. Dilute the seeds in dry sand to make distribution easier. Plant at a density of 1 cm-2. a Based on a protocol by 0. Leyser and I. Furner with permission. Steps 2-6 must be carried out in an 'Atmos' bag in a fume hood, which can make manipulating the seed awkward. Use adapted 10 ml syringes to hold the seeds throughout the entire procedure. These are made by cutting off the front end of the syringe and attaching a circle of fine nylon mesh into place.

Under these conditions it flowers slightly earlier, produces less leaves, and seed production is reduced. (f) It is not normally necessary to supplement the plants with nutrients, but poor nutrition can cause reduced height, early flowering, and reduced seed set. Proprietary brands of plant fertilizer can be used to feed Arabidopsis. 16 1: Growth, maintenance, and use of Arabidopsis genetic resources Protocol 2. 5 cm (H. ) . ) • ARACON™ harvesting system (Aracon) • Cellophane bags (Courtaulds) • John Innes No.
