Although a great deal of progress has been made toward understanding the role of abscisic acid (ABA) in fruit ripening, many components in the ABA signalling pathway remain to be elucidated. Here, a strawberry gene homologous to the Arabidopsis gene ABI1, named FaABI1, was isolated and characterized. The 1641bp cDNA includes an intact open reading frame(More)
Although beta-glucosidase was recently demonstrated to be involved at transcriptional level in fleshy fruit development, it remains unclear whether BG possesses biochemical activity. In the present study, real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction analysis showed that the mRNA expression levels of β-glucosidase gene VvBG1 increased rapidly(More)
Porcine β defensin 2 (pBD2) is a small, cationic and amphiphilic antimicrobial peptide. It has broad antimicrobial activities against bacteria and plays an important role in host defense. In order to enhance its antimicrobial activity and better understand the effect of positively charged residues on its activity, we substituted eight amino acid residues(More)
