Children born with a low birth weight (below 2500 g) exhibit a slower rate of development, and a greater tendency towards morbidity and mortality, together with a deficit of weight and height. One reason could be an increase in the level of cell elimination by apoptosis. The aim of this study was to evaluate and compare the incidence of apoptotic and(More)
In human and animal cells, the catecholamines are involved in glycogen mobilization. Since the compounds are found in a potato, their function in starch mobilization was hypothesized. In order to verify this hypothesis, the transgenic potato plants Solanum tuberosum L. cv. Desiree overexpressing tyrosine decarboxylase (TD EC cDNA from parsley has(More)
The catecholamine compounds in potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) leaves and tubers have been identified by gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (GC-MS) measurements. The finding that the catecholamine level is dramatically increased upon tyrosine decarboxylase (TD) overexpression potentiates the investigation on their physiological significance in(More)
Recently, transgenic potato plants were created showing underexpression of the 20R isoform of the 14-3-3 protein. The transgenic plants grown in tissue culture showed a significant increase in nitrate reductase activity and a decrease in nitrate level. The transgenic line with the lowest 14-3-3 quantity was field-trialed (1997-2000) and analyzed. The(More)
Recently, transgenic potato plants were created with overexpression of the 14-3-3 protein derived from Cucurbita pepo. Detailed analysis of those plants suggested that the function of the isolated 14-3-3 isoform is in the control of carbohydrate and lipid metabolism in the plants. 14-3-3 protein overexpression gave rise to an increase in soluble sugar and(More)
Even though the catecholamines (dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine) have been detected in plants their role is poorly documented. Correlations between norepinephrine, soluble sugars and starch concentration have been recently reported for potato plants over-expressing tyrosine decarboxylase, the enzyme mediating the first step of catecholamine(More)
