The presence of marker genes conferring antibiotic resistance in transgenic plants represents a serious obstacle for their public acceptance and future commercialization. In citrus, selection using the selectable marker gene nptII, that confers resistance to the antibiotic kanamycin, is in general very effective. An attractive alternative is offered by the MAT system (Multi-Auto-Transformation), which combines the ipt gene for positive selection with the recombinase system R/RS for removal of marker genes from transgenic cells after transformation. Transformation with a MAT vector has been attempted in two citrus genotypes, Pineapple sweet orange (Citrus sinensis L. Osb.) and Carrizo citrange (C. sinensis L. Osb. × Poncirus trifoliata L. Raf.). Results indicated that the IPT phenotype was clearly distinguishable in sweet orange but not in citrange, and that excision was not always efficient and precise. Nevertheless, the easy visual detection of the IPT phenotype combined with the higher transformation efficiency achieved in sweet orange using this system open interesting perspectives for the generation of marker-free transgenic citrus plants.
