Abstract
The HCV gene was expressed in potato plants under the control of the constitutive CaMV 35S promoter or tuber-specific patatin promoter. Solanum tuberosum plants carrying a plant expression vector harboring the encoding region of HCV gene were generated by Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated in vitro transformation methods. The presence of HCV gene in the plant genome was detected by PCR and DNA hybridization experiments. We obtained the 5 lines of transgenic potato with the pMBPHCV construct and 4 lines of transgenic potato with the pATHCV construct. The HCV transgene stably integrated into the potato genome, as well as their transcription. HCV mRNA was identified in leaf and tuber tissues of transgenic plants by Northern blot analysis. The transgenic potato plants produced the expected transcript, and the corresponding HCV protein accumulated in individual transgenic plants.
