Origin and evolution of cultivated cucurbits
TLDR
The discussion of the breeding history indicates how artificial selection could speed up changes in fruit characteristics to attend specific uses and increase adaptation to a variety of environmental conditions in which cucurbits are growing worldwide.
Concentration of nutrient solution in the hydroponic production of potato minitubers
The effect of the nutrient solution concentration on potato plant growth and minituber yield were determined in a sand closed hydroponic system. Minitubers and micropropagated plantlets of the cv.
Physiological and oxidative stress responses of four potato clones to aluminum in nutrient solution
TLDR
Results indicate that oxidative stress caused by Al in potato may harm several components of the cell, mainly in Al-sensitive clones.
A Case for Crop Wild Relative Preservation and Use in Potato
TLDR
A systematic and integrated strategy is needed to evaluate CWr in gene banks for traits to continue breeding progress, and it will be important to expand efforts to characterize and use potato CWr.
Cadmium-induced oxidative stress in two potato cultivars
TLDR
The results suggest that Cd induces oxidative stress in both potato cultivars and that of the two cultivars, Asterix showed greater sensitivity to Cd levels, which is suggested to cause lipid peroxidation in roots and shoot of both cultivars.
Optimization of enzymatic hydrolysis of cassava to obtain fermentable sugars
TLDR
It was concluded that pectinase improved the hydrolysis of starch from cassava by 90% using a central composite rotational design and a solid to liquid ratio of 1.0.
DRY BIOMASS AND GLYCOSIDES YIELD FROM S tevia rebaudiana LEAVES UNDER DIFFERENT HARVESTING
The Stevia rebaudiana (Bert) Bertoni is a perennial plant native in the Amambay Hills in the South America. The leaves of this plant produce various natural sweeteners useful to replace the human
Effect of aluminum on the in vitro activity of acid phosphatases of four potato clones grown in three growth systems
TLDR
The results show that the effect of Al toxicity on in vitro APase activity depends not only on Al availability but also on the plant organ, genetic background, and the growth conditions, suggesting that acid phosphatases activity assessed in vitro might not be a good parameter to validate the screening for adaptation of potato clones to Al toxicity.
