Photoautotrophic propagation of Brazilian ginseng [Pfaffia glomerata (Spreng.) Pedersen]
Pfaffia glomerata (Spreng.) Pedersen is a medicinal species of great interest because it produces the phytoecdysteroid 20-hydroxyecdysone (20E). Generally, because of atypical growing conditions, inExpand

Morpho-histological, histochemical, and molecular evidences related to cellular reprogramming during somatic embryogenesis of the model grass Brachypodium distachyon
The wild grass species Brachypodium distachyon (L.) has been proposed as a new model for temperate grasses. Among the biotechnological tools already developed for the species, an efficient inductionExpand

Somatic embryogenesis and de novo shoot organogenesis can be alternatively induced by reactivating pericycle cells in Lisianthus (Eustoma grandiflorum (Raf.) Shinners) root explants
This study demonstrated that somatic embryogenesis and de novo shoot organogenesis-based systems of root-derived Lisianthus (Eustoma grandiflorum) explants can be alternatively induced by exogenousExpand

In vitro photoautotrophic potential and ex vitro photosynthetic competence of Pfaffia glomerata (Spreng.) Pedersen accessions
This study aimed to investigate whether the in vitro photoautotrophic potential and 20 hydroxyecdysone (20E) production of six Pfaffia glomerata accessions could be correlated to photosyntheticExpand

Histochemical evaluation of induction of somatic embryogenesis in Passiflora edulis Sims (Passifloraceae)
The aim of this study was to describe the accumulation of reserves during the somatic embryogenesis process in Passiflora edulis Sims FB-300, obtained from mature zygotic embryos, using histochemicalExpand

Lignin and cellulose synthesis and antioxidative defense mechanisms are affected by light quality in Brachypodium distachyon
Light quality is perceived by plants through several receptors and generates diverse morphological, metabolic, and genetic responses. In this study, the identification of new putative lignocellulosicExpand
