Tomato Ve disease resistance genes encode cell surface-like receptors
In tomato, Ve is implicated in race-specific resistance to infection by Verticillium species causing crop disease. Characterization of the Ve locus involved positional cloning and isolation of twoExpand

Ripening and genotype control stilbene accumulation in healthy grapes.
In grapes, stilbene synthesis occurs in the skin, and it is induced by biotic and abiotic stresses. To date, experimental evidence of a constitutive production of resveratrols in healthy grape isExpand

Proteins from the FLOWERING LOCUS T-like subclade of the PEBP family act antagonistically to regulate floral initiation in tobacco.
Flowering is an important agronomic trait that often depends on the integration of photoperiod, vernalization, gibberellin and/or autonomous signaling pathways by regulatory proteins such asExpand

In planta transcription of a second subgenomic RNA increases the complexity of the subgroup 2 luteovirus genome.
The genetic information of potato leafroll virus (PLRV), a typical member of the subgroup 2 luteoviruses, is contained in a single-stranded (+) sense RNA of approximately 5.9 kb. A single subgenomicExpand

Molecular and phylogenetic characterization of the sieve element occlusion gene family in Fabaceae and non-Fabaceae plants
BackgroundThe phloem of dicotyledonous plants contains specialized P-proteins (phloem proteins) that accumulate during sieve element differentiation and remain parietally associated with theExpand

Characterization of a potato leafroll luteovirus subgenomic RNA: differential expression by internal translation initiation and UAG suppression.
Northern blot analysis of Solanum tuberosum infected with potato leafroll luteovirus revealed the 6 kb genomic RNA and a major 2.3 kb subgenomic RNA. The 5' end of the subgenomic RNA was located atExpand
