- Poplar as a woody-plant model is significant to improve the transformation efficiency of poplar. The effect of different leaf age as explants on transformation frequency was studied. The results exhibited that the higher transformation frequency was generated by 30-day-old leaf explants, compared with 60-day-old and 90-day-old leaf explants. The transformation frequency was more than 30%. The results indicated that various of transformation frequency were led by different leaf ages explants under the same conditions. The status of Agrobacterium attachment were observed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) in the process of transformation. The results exhibited that Agrobacterium attachment were gradually reduced with the increased in leaf ages. Leaf surface at thirty-day-old showed massive Agrobacterium attachment. Our results suggest that younger leaves had higher transformation efficiency than older leaves.
