762 results about "Insertion" patented technology

In genetics, an insertion (also called an insertion mutation) is the addition of one or more nucleotide base pairs into a DNA sequence. This can often happen in microsatellite regions due to the DNA polymerase slipping. Insertions can be anywhere in size from one base pair incorrectly inserted into a DNA sequence to a section of one chromosome inserted into another. The mechanism of the smallest single base insertion mutations is believed to be through base-pair separation between the template and primer strands followed by non-neighbor base stacking, which can occur locally within the DNA polymerase active site. On a chromosome level, an insertion refers to the insertion of a larger sequence into a chromosome. This can happen due to unequal crossover during meiosis.

Particle-mediated bombardment of DNA sequences into tissue to induce an immune response

A method of transferring a gene to vertebrate cells is disclosed. The method comprises the steps of: (a) providing microprojectiles, the microprojectiles carrying polynucleic acid sequences, the sequences comprising, in the 5' to 3' direction, a regulatory sequence operable in the tissue cells and a gene positioned downstream of the regulatory sequence and under the transcriptional control thereof; and (b) accelerating the microprojectiles at the cells, with the microprojectiles contacting the cells at a speed sufficient to penetrate the cells and deposit the polynucleic acid sequences therein. Preferably, the target cells reside in situ in the animal subject when they are transformed. Preferred target cells are dermis or hypodermis cells, and preferred genes for insertion into the target cells are genes which code for proteins or peptides which produce a physiological response in the animal subject.

High efficiency gene targeting in plants

The present invention provides a method for the targeted insertion of a nucleotide of interest into a specific chromosomal site within a plant cell. The method comprises the steps of: (a) providing a plant cell, the plant cell optionally but preferably having a heterologous target site on a chromosome thereof, wherein said target site is flanked by at least one recombination site; and then (b) transforming said plant cell with a transformation vector (e.g., with an Agrobacterium transformation vector) carrying a nucleotide sequence of interest, wherein said nucleotide sequence of interest is flanked by at least one recombination site that corresponds to the recombination sites of said target site, so that said nucleotide of interest is inserted into said chromosome at said target site (when a target site is employed).

Molecular marker of rice-blast-resistant gene Pi2 and application of molecular marker

The invention belongs to the field of crop biotechnology and in particular relates to a molecular marker of a rice-blast-resistant gene Pi2 and application of the molecular marker. The upstream and downstream molecular markers are based on specific insertion / deletion loci polymorphism of nucleotide sequences shown in SEQ ID NO.1 and SEQ ID NO.2. The two molecular markers are co-dominant molecular markers developed for close linkage regions on two sides of the functional gene Pi2, and have the advantages of being high in accuracy and capable of being widely applied to different breeding parents. By detecting the two molecular markers, whether a detected rice material has the rice-blast-resistant gene Pi2 or not can be accurately judged. By virtue of a molecular marker combination, whether a hybrid transferred progeny plant genome of a parent of the functional gene Pi2 and other parents has the functional gene Pi2 or not and the homozygous state of the functional gene Pi2 can be accurately detected, and the breeding efficiency of a rice-blast-resistant rice variety with the functional gene Pi2 is improved.
