Transgenic poplars (Populus tremula x Populus alba) were obtained by introduction of a sense homologous transgene encoding caffeic acid O-methyltransferase (COMT) under the control either of the cauliflower mosaic virus double 35S promoter or of the eucalyptus cinnamyl alcohol dehydrogenase promoter. Although these constructs conferred a moderate(More)
Mitochondrial complex I is a major avenue for reduced NAD oxidation linked to oxidative phosphorylation in plants. However, the plant enzyme has structural and functional features that set it apart from its counterparts in other organisms, raising questions about the physiological significance of this complex in plants. We have developed an experimental(More)
A gapA-pgk gene tandem coding the glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase and 3-phosphoglycerate kinase, is most frequently found in bacteria. However, in Enterobacteriaceae, gapA is replaced by an epd open reading frame (ORF) coding an erythrose-4-phosphate dehydrogenase and an fbaA ORF coding the class II fructose-1,6-bisphosphate aldolase follows pgk.(More)
Crystallization conditions are reported for an engineered cephalosporin acylase based on the sequence of glutaryl-7-aminocephalosporanic acid acylase from Pseudomonas strain N176. Initial crystals were grown using polyethylene glycol as a crystallizing agent; however, these crystals diffracted poorly and exhibited high mosaicity. A dehydration procedure in(More)
In the present study, we have performed chemical investigations of the stem cell walls during internode maturation in order to study the growth dynamics of alfalfa and the deposition of the main cell wall components (polysaccharides and lignins). Internode cell walls were analysed by chemical fractionation using a mild delignification step aiming at(More)
