The transfer of Mn-Superoxide Dismutase (SOD2) gene, complex gene (SA) of CuZnSOD and ascorbate peroxidase (APX), and NDP kinase 2 (NDPK2) gene into Korean 4 cultivars (cvs. Millenium White, Glory Blue, Glory Red, and Glory Purple) and 15 purebred lines of petunia was conducted using Agrobaterium-mediated technique. Two (Wongyo A2-16 and A2-36) of 15 purebred lines and one (cv. Glory Red) of 4 cultivars were effective for the transfer of SOD2 gene. The putative transgenic plants survived on the 2nd selection medium were 124. From PCR analysis, 118 (derived from 4 cultivars and 2 purebred lines) of 124 plants were confirmed to contain marker (npt II ) gene, while 58 of 118 plants did not have target genes. There were no plants with both npt II and SA genes. Twenty seven of 28 SOD2 transgenic plants were re-confirmed as transformants by Sothern analysis. SOD2 and NDPK2 genes were expressed in the transgenic petunias as the ratio of 77.8 to 100.0 % and 23.5%, respectively. T1 seeds were obtained from 36 acclimated transgenic plants (SOD2 34 plus NDPK2) in a glasshouse by self-pollination.
