Plants on Constant Alert: Elevated Levels of Jasmonic Acid and Jasmonate-Induced Transcripts in Caterpillar-Resistant Maize
This study was conducted to determine if constitutive levels of jasmonic acid (JA) and other octadecanoid compounds were elevated prior to herbivory in a maize genotype with documented resistance toExpand

Mir1-CP, a novel defense cysteine protease accumulates in maize vascular tissues in response to herbivory
When lepidopteran larvae feed on the insect-resistant maize genotype Mp708 there is a rapid accumulation of a defensive cysteine protease, Maize insect resistance 1-cysteine protease (Mir1-CP), atExpand

Heterogeneity of sucrose synthase genes in bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.): evidence for a nodule-enhanced sucrose synthase gene.
Sucrose synthase (SS), the key sucrose hydrolytic enzyme (EC, plays an important role in N(2)-fixing nodule metabolism. It has also been proposed that N(2) fixation in soybean nodules couldExpand

Molecular cloning of the cDNA encoding aspartate aminotransferase from bean root nodules and determination of its role in nodule nitrogen metabolism.
A cDNA clone encoding aspartate aminotransferase (PVAAT-2) (EC was isolated from the common bean Phaseolus vulgaris nodule cDNA library. The nucleotide sequence analysis of the full-lengthExpand

Expression of different calmodulin genes in bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.): role of nod factor on calmodulin gene regulation.
Three calmodulin (PvCaM-1, PvCaM-2, and PvCaM-3) clones were isolated from a Phaseolus vulgaris nodule cDNA library. All clones contain the complete coding region and are 62 to 74% homologous withinExpand

Rhizobium etli mutant modulates carbon and nitrogen metabolism in Phaseolus vulgaris nodules.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the biochemical events in root nodules which lead to increased yield when bean is inoculated with a Rhizobium etli mutant (CFN037) having increased respiratoryExpand

Evaluation of the role of recA protein in plant virulence with recA mutants of Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris.
Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris NRRL B1459 recA mutants were isolated by recombination with an interrupted Rhizobium etli recA gene and selection of double recombinants. The mutants wereExpand
