Mitochondrial haplotypes are not associated with mice selectively bred for high voluntary wheel running
Mitochondrial haplotypes have been associated with human and rodent phenotypes, including nonshiveringthermogenesis capacity, learning capability, and disease risk. Although the mammalian mitochondrial D-loop ishighly ...
Biology and chemistry of an Umbravirus like 2989 bp single stranded RNA as a possible causal agent for Opuntia stunting disease (engrosamiento de cladodios)-A Review.
Perhaps the most economically important disease of Opuntia ficus indica fruit cacti in Mexico is the “engrosamiento de cladodios” or macho disease. The symptoms of this disease, which has been suggested to be caused by ...
Crassulacean Acid Metabolism Abiotic Stress-Responsive Transcription Factors: a Potential Genetic Engineering Approach for Improving Crop Tolerance to Abiotic Stress
This perspective paper explores the utilization of abiotic stress-responsive transcription factors (TFs) from crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM) plants to improve abiotic stress tolerance in crop plants. CAM is a specialized ...
Laying the foundation for crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM) Biodesign: Expression of the C4 metabolism cycle genes of CAM in Arabidopsis.
Crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM) is a specialized mode of photosynthesis that exploits a temporal CO2 pump with nocturnal CO2 uptake and concentration to reduce photorespiration, improve water-use efficiency (WUE), and ...
The bracteatus pineapple genome and domestication of clonally propagated crops
Domestication of clonally propagated crops such as pineapple from South America was hypothesized to be a ‘one-step operation’. We sequenced the genome of Ananas comosus var. bracteatus CB5 and assembled 513?Mb into 25 ...
Evolution of l‐DOPA 4,5‐dioxygenase activity allows for recurrent specialisation to betalain pigmentation in Caryophyllales
The evolution of L-DOPA 4, 5-dioxygenase activity, encoded by the gene DODA, was a keystep in the origin of betalain biosynthesis in Caryophyllales. We previously proposed that L-DOPA 4,5-dioxygenase activity evolved via ...
Identification of genes encoding enzymes catalyzing the early steps of carrot polyacetylene biosynthesis
Polyacetylenic lipids accumulate in various Apiaceae species after pathogen attack, suggesting that these compounds are naturally occurring pesticides and potentially valuable resources for crop improvement. These compounds ...
