Transgenic plants in monocotyledons

As mentioned earlier the creation of transgenic plants in monocotyledons was not so victorious due to two reasons:
a) the Ti plasmids could not be misused to modify monocots because monocots are not ordinarily putrid by Agrobacterium , which is generally victimized to transmute dicots. And
 b) the regeneration of plants from protoplasts or only cells which is generally misused for change was not affirmable.

These limitations have been solved by using deciding and new methods of DNA uptake and reconstruction protocols for crops suchlike dramatist and maize. In dramatist (both in japonica and indica varieties, there know been victorious production of transgenic plants. In Maize, a communicator gene for fradicin phosphotransferase (NPT II) related with 35S promoter part of the cauliflower decorated virus (CMV) was misused for production of transgenic plants.
