Organism Medicago sativa
Tissue Glandular trichomes isolated from stem
Stage Trichomes were removed from internodes of 8-12 inch tall stems
Description Vector: pDNR-LIB; Glandular-haired alfalfa plants were established in a Conviron growth chamber (16-h days, full lights, 24oC set point) in 40 one gallon pots. Plants were grown in Metromix 350 and fertilized with MiracleGro as needed. They were cut back closely to encourage the emergence of vigorous shoots. Trichomes were isolated from stems, approximately 8-12 inches long, clipped from plants 2-3 inches above the crown. With minimal handling of the stem, the apical bud, leaves and nodes were discarded, and the trichomes isolated from the internode segments.
