In order to establish a basis for transformation technology in the petroleum plant Euphorbia tirucalli, the callus of the plant was infected with Agrobacterium, washed with distilled water, sterilized with distilled water containing 100 mg/l of carbenicillin, selected on solidified B5 medium containing 13 mg/l of G418 and 100 mg/l of carbenicillin, and then on solidified B5 medium containing 25 mg/l of G418 and 100 mg/l of carbenicillin for the transgenic calli, and then the callus lines were subcultured successively on solidified B5 medium containing 50 mg/l of G418. We performed PCR analysis of sterilized G418-resistant callus line DNA and concluded that the gene introduced was integrated into the callus genome.
