|Title:||Carborundum-dependent entrance of<i> Eco</i>RI restriction enzyme into plant cells and specific cleavage of genomic DNA|
Kohnehrouz, B Baghban
|Abstract:||In a basic research to determine the morpho-molecular interactions of plant tissues with <i>Eco</i>RI DNA restriction enzyme, it was demonstrated that this protein is capable of entering the sunflower and maize leaf cells using a plant tissue-abrading material and cleaving the genomic DNA at specific sites. This was inferred from the analysis of morphological patterns of <i>Eco</i>RI-treated leaf areas as well as using some molecular tests, including the cleavage pattern analysis of genomic DNA isolated from treated locations followed by ligation of cleaved fragments into <i>Eco</i>RI site of a DNA cloning vector system. The overall results indicated that the specific restriction of genomic DNA may happen following the entrance of <i>Eco</i>RI protein most likely into the nucleus of plant cells.|
