Title
Ultrasound: Mechanical gene transfer into plant cells by sonoporation
Abstract

Development of nonviral gene transfer methods would be a valuable alternative of gene therapy or transformation. Ultrasound can produce a variety of nonthermal bioeffects via acoustic cavitation. Cavitation bubbles can induce cell death or transient membrane permeabilization (sonoporation) on cells. Application of sonoporation for gene transfer into cells or tissues develops quickly in recent years. Many studies have been performed in vitro exposure systems to a variety of cell lines transfected successfully. In vivo, cavitation initiation and control are more difficult, but can be enhanced by ultrasound contrast agents (microbubbles). The use of ultrasound for nonviral gene delivery has been applied for mammalian systems, which provides a fundamental basis and strong promise for development of new gene therapy methods for clinical medicine. In this paper, ultrasound applied to plant cell transformation or gene transfer is reviewed. Recently, most researches are focused on sonication-assisted Agrobacterium-mediated transformation (SAAT) in plant cells or tissues. Microbubbles are also proposed to apply to gene transfer in plant cells and tissues.
