Ascorbate Peroxidase and Catalase Activities and Their Genetic Regulation in Plants Subjected to Drought and Salinity Stresses
TLDR
The role of H2O2 in plants experiencing water deficit and salinity is highlighted and major outcomes of studies on CAT and APX activity and genetic regulation in drought- and salt-stressed plants are synthesized. Expand
Correlation between hormonal homeostasis and morphogenic responses in Arabidopsis thaliana seedlings growing in a Cd/Cu/Zn multi-pollution context.
TLDR
Results show that the Cd/Cu/Zn-induced changes in root morphology are caused by a hormonal unbalance, mainly governed by the auxin/cytokinin ratio. Expand
Cucumber mosaic virus as a presentation system for a double hepatitis C virus-derived epitope
TLDR
A new chimeric CMV, expressing on its surface the HCV-derived R10 mimotope, was produced but lost the insert after the first passage on tobacco, suggesting this chimeric form of CMV may be useful in the development of oral vaccines against HCV. Expand
Structural and biological properties of Cucumber mosaic virus particles carrying hepatitis C virus-derived epitopes.
TLDR
Study of the symptoms pattern displayed in tobacco by these chimeric CMV particles, together with determination of their structural characteristics, assessed by circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy and electron microscopy, revealed a possible relationship between the biological behavior and the structural properties of virus components.

Trichoderma harzianum T-22 Induces Systemic Resistance in Tomato Infected by Cucumber mosaic virus
TLDR
The data reported here indicate that the T22-based strategy may be the most effective measure against CMV, and treating with T22 before or simultaneously to CMV infection led to a systemic resistance by jasmonic acid/ethylene and salicylic acid signaling pathways. Expand
Auxin and Cytokinin Metabolism and Root Morphological Modifications in Arabidopsis thaliana Seedlings Infected with Cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) or Exposed to Cadmium
TLDR
Microscopic analysis revealed that both CMV and Cd influenced root morphology by a marked development in the length of root hairs and an intense root branching if compared to controls, which could provide insights into novel strategies for plant defense against pathogens and plant protection against pollutants. Expand
In vitro stability of Cucumber mosaic virus nanoparticles carrying a Hepatitis C virus-derived epitope under simulated gastrointestinal conditions and in vivo efficacy of an edible vaccine.
TLDR
The possibility of inducing a humoral immune response in rabbits fed with R9-CMV infected lettuce plants was demonstrated, suggesting that this system could function as a confirming tool of a bioreactor for the production of a stable edible vaccine against HCV. Expand
Plant architecture, auxin homeostasis and phenol content in Arabidopsis thaliana grown in cadmium- and zinc-enriched media.
TLDR
The remodelling of the root architecture and the production of some secondary metabolites, such as IAA and phenols could be two responses of plants subjected to metal stress and can open the way to future phytoremediation strategies of contaminated sites. Expand
Beneficial effects of Trichodermaharzianum T-22 in tomato seedlings infected by Cucumber mosaic virus (CMV)
TLDR
The data indicate that Trichoderma harzianum T-22 stimulates the induction of tomato defense responses against CMV, an action that implies the involvement of ROS, pointing towards its use as a treatment rather than as a preventive measure. Expand
Cucumber mosaic virus as the expression system for a potential vaccine against Alzheimer's disease.
TLDR
Two chimeric CMVs appear to be endowed with features making them possible candidates for vaccination against Alzheimer's disease, following incubation with either pro-Aβ1-15 or anti-A β1-42 polyclonal antibodies. Expand
