Title Germ line transformation of the silkworm, Bombyx mori, using the transposable element Minos.
Journal Mol. Genet. Genomics
Abstract 40-fold increase in the efficiency of producing transgenic silkworms was obtained using an in vitro synthesized source of Minos transposase mRNA. We conclude that the Minos transposon is a useful vector for construction of transgenic silkworms, particularly when in vitro synthesized mRNA is used. This is the first report showing that Minos can be used as a vector for germ-line transformation in lepidopteran insects.
