Narrow-bandwidth light treatments may be used to manipulate plant growth, development and metabolism. In this report LED-based light treatments were used to affect yield and metabolic content of sweet basil (Ocimum basilicum L. cv "Ceasar") grown in controlled environments. This culinary herb produces an aroma highly appreciated by consumers, primarily(More)
Flavonoids represent a large family of specialized metabolites involved in plant growth, development, and adaptation. Chalcone synthase (CHS) catalyzes the first step of flavonoid biosynthesis by directing carbon flux from general phenylpropanoid metabolism to flavonoid pathway. Despite extensive characterization of its function and transcriptional(More)
Damage to mitochondria is a common mechanism of cell death in inherited neurodegenerative disorders. Therefore, mitochondrial protection and mitochondrial repair are promising strategies to induce retinal neuroprotection. Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ coactivator-α (PGC-1α) and β (PGC-1β) are transcriptional coactivators that are the main(More)
