Medicinal plants contain a plethora of secondary metabolites, most of which are bioactive in nature. The role of a popular plant growth retardant CCC has been investigated to explore its impact on secondary metabolite production, particularly phenols and flavonoids from in vitro grown Stevia rebaudiana. CCC stimulated the production of total phenols and(More)
Drought is one of the major limiting factors for productivity of crops including rice (Oryza sativa L.). Understanding the role of allelic variations of key regulatory genes involved in stress-tolerance is essential for developing an effective strategy to combat drought. The bZIP transcription factors play a crucial role in abiotic-stress adaptation in(More)
To meet current challenges in agriculture, genome editing using sequence-specific nucleases (SSNs) is a powerful tool for basic and applied plant biology research. Here, we describe the principle and application of available genome editing tools, including zinc finger nucleases (ZFNs), transcription activator-like effector nucleases (TALENs) and the(More)
Mungbean Yellow Mosaic Virus (MYMIV) is the viral pathogen that causes yellow mosaic disease to a number of legumes including Vigna mungo. VM84 is a recombinant inbred line resistant to MYMIV, developed in our laboratory through introgression of resistance trait from V. mungo line VM-1. Here we present the quality control passed transcriptome data of mock(More)
Family members of sucrose non-fermenting 1-related kinase 2 (SnRK2), being plant-specific serine/threonine protein kinases, constitute the central core of abscisic acid (ABA)-dependent and ABA-independent signaling pathways, and are key regulators of abiotic stress adaptation in plants. We report here the functional characterization of SAPK9 gene, one of(More)
Investigations have been carried out to determine the influence of chlorocholine chloride on induction of the resistance mechanisms of Stevia rebaudiana against leaf spot disease, caused by Alternaria alternata. The paper also focuses an impact of chlorocholine chloride induced resistance on reduction of leaf spot disease. Chlorocholine chloride is(More)
Phytoconstituents from medicinal plants are considered as important source of raw materials of drugs for pharmaceutical industries. Biotechnology has become an inevitable approach in the area of research and development of medicinal plants for many decades. The present work has been carried out to ascertain the role of chlorocholine chloride (CCC) on in(More)
To rationalize scientifically the traditional claim on use of Wedelia biflora (Linn.) D. C. for the treatment of wounds and infections, the present study was designed to evaluate the antimicrobial and wound healing activity of ethanol extract of leaves of W. biflora. In in vitro assays the test extract was subjected to antimicrobial activity by agar(More)
