This research describes the generation of interspecific plum rootstock that was produced by genetic engineering to achieve plum pox virus (PPV) resistance. Transgenic plum rootstock (background), with the stable genomic integration of the PPV coat protein sense and antisense intron-hairpin-RNA sequence, have been generated after agrobacterium-mediated transformation of in vitro explanted leaves. The functionality of the introduced expression cassette was confirmed by the activity of the uidA gene in the resulting plum plants. This result opens the way to build mature stone fruit trees, in which both grafted scions and rootstock will show predictable resistance to PPV infection and disease. View this paper
