Nuclear localisation and Western blot & pull-down of silencing suppressor protein P0.
The simple injection with Agrobacterium gives strong transgene expression in a few days
Our strategy to sequence and map the genome.
Nicotiana benthamiana, which originates from the remote regions of northern Australia, is used in many plant biology labs around the world because of its excellent properties for rapid transient expression of transgenes delivered into leaves by Agro-infiltration.
The plant is used for many different types of research including gene silencing, metabolic engineering, plant-microbe interactions, protein-protein interactions and gene function studies.
The primary purpose of this site is to provide access to our genome and transcriptome information for this plant. See Sequencing Strategy for details.
This is an endeavour by an Australian & New Zealand Consortium consisting of the University of Sydney, CSIRO and Plant and Food Research (New Zealand).
For a history of N. benthamiana, see this review.
