Transformation of fenugreek ( Trigonella foenumgraecum) was carried out with A281 oncogenic strain of Agrobacterium tumefaciens using root, cotyledon and hypocotyl explants excised from 1-week-old seedlings, which showed that the plant was highly susceptible to transformation. Tumors ( calli) were selected on 50 mg dm(-3) kanamycin. They were analyzed for beta-glucuronidase (GUS) expression. Presence of uidA (gus) gene, was confirmed by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification.
