Two divergent endo-beta-1,4-glucanase genes exhibit overlapping expression in ripening fruit and abscising flowers.
Two structurally divergent endo-beta-1,4-glucanase (EGase) cDNAs were cloned from tomato. Although both cDNAs (Cel1 and Cel2) encode potentially glycosylated, basic proteins of 51 to 53 kD andExpand

Preventive and post‐infection control of Botrytis cinerea in tomato plants by hexanoic acid
The antifungal activity of hexanoic acid on the phytopathogen Botrytis cinerea was studied. This chemical inhibited both spore germination and mycelial growth in vitro in a concentration- andExpand

A new glucose‐repressible gene identified from the analysis of chromatin structure in deletion mutants of yeast SUC2 locus
We have previously shown that some changes occur in the chromatin structure of the 3′ flank of the yeast SUC2 gene in going from a repressed to an active state. In an attempt to find out the causesExpand

Differential Expression of Two Endo-1,4-[beta]-Glucanase Genes in Pericarp and Locules of Wild-Type and Mutant Tomato Fruit
The mRNA accumulation of two endo-1,4-[beta]-D-glucanase genes, Cel1 and Cel2, was examined in the pericarp and locules throughout the development of normal tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) fruit andExpand

Phylogenetic analysis of the thiolase family. Implications for the evolutionary origin of peroxisomes
SummaryThe thiolase family is a widespread group of proteins present in prokaryotes and three cellular compartments of eukaryotes. This fact makes this family interesting in order to study theExpand

Effect of a novel chemical mixture on senescence processes and plant--fungus interaction in Solanaceae plants.
The effects of exogenous application of a chemical mixture consisting of adipic acid monoethyl ester, furfurylamine, and 1,2,3,4-tetra-O-acetyl-beta-D-glucopyranose (FGA) on various metabolicExpand

The POT1 gene for yeast peroxisomal thiolase is subject to three different mechanisms of regulation
Summary The Saccharomyces cerevisiae POT1 gene is, as are other yeast peroxisomal protein genes, inducible by fatty acids and repressible by glucose. We have now found that it is also induced duringExpand

Control of the phytopathogen Botrytis cinerea using adipic acid monoethyl ester
The in vitro and in vivo antifungal activity of adipic acid monoethyl ester (AAME) on the necrotrophic pathogen Botrytis cinerea has been studied. This chemical effectively controlled this importantExpand

Characterization of tomato endo-β-1,4-glucanase Cel1 protein in fruit during ripening and after fungal infection
The tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) endo-β-1,4-glucanase (EGase) Cel1 protein was characterized in fruit using specific antibodies. Two polypeptides ranging between 51 and 52 kDa were detectedExpand

Immunodetection and Characterization of Tomato Endo-[beta]-1,4-Glucanase Cel1 Protein in Flower Abscission Zones
Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) endo-[beta]-1,4-glucanase Cel1 mRNA accumulation was previously correlated with abscission of flower explants. Cel1 antibodies were raised against a fusionExpand
