Abstract

The plasmid pBR322 bearing the lytic enzyme gene of colitis bacteriophage was injected into 10 sets of 10 onion bulbs each, at multiple points, and germinated for 7 days. The lytic enzyme was detected in the extracts of 0-60%of the bulbs in each set by turbidometric assay. This lyticenzyme gene can be used as a marker gene for gene transfer in plants and animals and in chimaeric gene constructs to study regulation of gene expression.
