In periwinkle cell suspensions, amounts of gibberellic acid ranging from 10 ( - 10) M to 10 ( - 7) M significantly antagonized, in a dose-dependant manner, the stimulation of ajmalicine biosynthesis by cytokinins (CKs). This inhibitory effect was strictly correlated with the abolition of the expression of two genes encoding enzymes of the monoterpenoid(More)
Tissue Factor Pathway Inhibitor-2 (TFPI-2) is a potent inhibitor of plasmin which activates metalloproteinases (MMPs) involved in extracellular matrix (ECM) degradation. Its secretion in ECM makes TFPI-2 a potential inhibitor to regulate tumour invasion and metastasis. Moreover, TFPI-2 is frequently downregulated, particularly in aggressive cancers. In this(More)
In periwinkle cell suspensions, the accurate quantification of gene expression through real-time RT-PCR showed that two type-A response regulators (RR-A), considered primary cytokinin (CK)-responsive genes, were differentially regulated after CK treatment. Specific inhibition of phospholipase D (PLD)-dependent phosphatidic acid (PA) production by primary(More)
In Catharanthus roseus cell cultures, cytokinins (CK) improve monoterpenoid indole alkaloids (MIAs) accumulation. This metabolite production is correlated with an increase of transcripts corresponding to genes encoding both elements of the CK-signaling pathway and enzymes implicated in MIAs biosynthesis. However, it has not been demonstrated that the CK(More)
