3 Via dei carotenoidi Cunningham & Gant (1998)

4 GGPP PHS crtI Cunningham & Gant (1998)

5 Oltre il licopene crtY Oltre il -carotene

6 VitA deficiency: 124 M children affected/year
250,000 children go blind/y 1-2 M deaths/y

7 GGPP è presente nell’endosperma di riso

8 Costrutti Cotrasf.

9 Southern blot crtB = psy crtI = pds DNA digerito con: * I-sce I * Kpn

10 Cotrasformazione crtB = psy crtI = pds crtY = lyc In entrambi i casi la maggior parte degli eventi sono singole inserzioni

11 Il colore del seme Lycopene? -carotene wt

13 Come aumentare il contenuto di β-carotene (proVitA)?
β-carotene prodotto in molte le linee (lcy o costitutiva o indotta) Quantità massima 1.6 g/g  100 g retinol equivalents /300 g riso al giorno Come aumentare il contenuto di β-carotene (proVitA)?

14 Golden Rice II (b) Photograph showing individual maize calli cotransformed with the plasmid containing the maize psy (right, Zm psy) and an empty vector (EV) control (left). (c) Histogram showing the total colored carotenoid content of maize calli transformed with a given psy gene (from Arabidopsis thaliana (At), Daucus carota (Dc), Narcissus pseudonarcissus (Np), Zea mays (Zm), Capsicum annuum (Ca), Oryza sativa (Os) or Lycopersicon esculentum (Le)). Data shown represents the 75th percentile for each population of transgenic calli expressed as a percentage of the median empty vector (EV) control value. The second y-axis (diamonds) shows the percentage of calli from each population with a carotenoid content more than fivefold that of the EV median Paine, et al., (2005) Nat Biotech. 23: Expression of a psy transgene increases the carotenoid content of maize callus

17 Carotenoid content & composition in T2 seed endosperm
* large scale (>>100) primary transformants * Different variety * No antibiotic select. Paine, et al., (2005)

18 Conclusioni Trasformanti a singola inserzioni accumulano mg/kg di carotenoidi; il β-carotene rappresenta l’80% Il carattere è stabile ed ereditabile La quantità contenuta in 72 g di riso dovrebbe coprire (assumendo conversione sfavorevole di 12:1) il 50% del fabbisogno giornaliero di un bambino.

1) La sovraespressione dell’enzima è veramente a livelli notevoli. Protein

22 Livello degli altri enzimi nella via?
2) L’accumulo avviene per un periodo molto più lungo (il flusso istantaneo non è così elevato

27 Iron deficiency Lucca P, Hurrell R, Potrykus I. (2002) Fighting iron deficiency anemia with iron-rich rice. J Am Coll Nutr. 21:184S-190S. OBJECTIVE: Iron deficiency is estimated to affect about 30% of the world population. Iron supplementation in the form of tablets and food fortification has not been successful in developing countries, and iron deficiency is still the most important deficiency related to malnutrition. Here we present experiments that aim to increase the iron content in rice endosperm and to improve its absorption in the human intestine by means of genetic engineering. METHODS: We first introduced a ferritin gene from Phaseolus vulgaris into rice grains, increasing their iron content up to twofold. To increase iron bioavailability, we introduced a thermo-tolerant phytase from Aspergillus fumigatus into the rice endosperm. In addition, as cysteine peptides are considered major enhancers of iron absorption, we over-expressed the endogenous cysteine-rich metallothionein-like protein. RESULTS: The content of cysteine residues increased about sevenfold and the phytase level in the grains about one hundred and thirtyfold, giving a phytase activity sufficient to completely degrade phytic acid in a simulated digestion experiment. CONCLUSIONS: This rice, with higher iron content, rich in phytase and cysteine-peptide has a great potential to substantially improve iron nutrition in those populations where iron deficiency is so widely spread
