Inheritance of TDNA in progeny of primary transformants. a Induction of red/purple anthocyanin pigment from expression of the Arabidopsis MYB113 transcription factor shown in transgenic dandelion (left) versus no pigment in wild type plants (right). b Amplification of Agrobacterium TDNA sequences for Basta resistance and YFP present in transgenic parental plant and seedlings and absent in WT. c WT seedlings (left) are killed by treatment with Basta herbicide, Basta-resistant seedlings (right) are unaffected. d Fluorescent microscopy of WT shows no fluorescence. e, f Transgenic seedlings show YFP fluorescence in mesophyll and epidermal cells respectively
