Khumaida, and Kurniawan R. Trijatmiko. Plant genetic
improvement can be done through classical breeding or
genetic engineering. WRKY is a transcription factor involved
in regulating plant defense responses. OsWRKY76 gene is
located in a narrow segment of chromosome 9 which is
identified previously to be related to wide spectrum
resistance in rice. A sequence of OsWRKY76 (+1.200 bp)
has available in the gene bank and it makes possible to
isolate, clone, and construct the gene into over-expression
vector. The aim of this research was to assemble an overexpression
construct of OsWRKY76 candidate gene and
introduce it into rice through Agrobacterium-mediated
transformation. A construct of pCAMBIA-
1301::35S::OsWRKY76 has been successfully assembled and
transformed into embryogenic calli of rice cv. Nipponbare
using A. tumefaciens strain Agl-1 and EHA 105. A number of
126 independent lines has been produced, in which Agl-1
showed 3.8 times more efficient than EHA 105. PCR analysis
of randomly selected 25 independent lines showed that all
of them positively contained hptII gene, a selectable marker
used in the over-expression construct of the OsWRKY76
candidate gene. Based on the result, it could be concluded
that the over-expression construct of OsWRKY76 candidate
gene have been successfully introduced into the tissue of
