T-DNA Insertion Analysis in Agrobacterium-Mediated Transformation (AMT)

What is Agrobacterium-Mediated Plant Transformation? Agrobacterium, a soil-dwelling bacterium, can chemotactically infect a wide array of dicotyledonous plants. Exploiting wounded areas of the plant, Agrobacterium induces the formation of crown gall tumors or hairy roots. Within Agrobacterium‘s Ti and Ri plasmids resides a crucial fragment of transfer DNA known as T-DNA. This T-DNA has the remarkable capability […]

Human Leukocyte Antigen Molecules and HLA Typing

Overview of HLA Human leukocyte antigen (HLA) molecules are essential components of the immune system, playing a crucial role in activating antitumor immune responses through their interactions with T cell receptors (TCRs). HLA molecules are a class of glycoproteins composed of an alpha-heavy chain and a beta-light chain that are non-covalently bound. The structure of […]
