Abscisic Acid Deficiency Causes Changes in Cuticle Permeability and Pectin Composition That Influence Tomato Resistance to Botrytis cinerea1[C][W][OA]
A mutant of tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) with reduced abscisic acid (ABA) production (sitiens) exhibits increased resistance to the necrotrophic fungus Botrytis cinerea. This resistance isExpand

Disruption of the SapM locus in Mycobacterium bovis BCG improves its protective efficacy as a vaccine against M. tuberculosis
Mycobacterium bovis bacille Calmette‐Guerin (BCG) provides only limited protection against pulmonary tuberculosis. We tested the hypothesis that BCG might have retained immunomodulatory propertiesExpand

Mutations in GMPPA cause a glycosylation disorder characterized by intellectual disability and autonomic dysfunction.
In guanosine diphosphate (GDP)-mannose pyrophosphorylase A (GMPPA), we identified a homozygous nonsense mutation that segregated with achalasia and alacrima, delayed developmental milestones, andExpand

A novel strategy for the comprehensive analysis of the biomolecular composition of isolated plasma membranes
A methodology for rapid, high-purity isolation of plasma membranes using superparamagnetic nanoparticles is described. The method is illustrated with high-resolution proteomic, glycomic and lipidomicExpand

SapM mutation to improve the BCG vaccine: genomic, transcriptomic and preclinical safety characterization
The Mycobacterium bovis Bacille Calmette Guérin (BCG) vaccine shows variable efficacy in protection against adult tuberculosis (TB). Earlier, we have described a BCG mutant vaccine with a transposonExpand

Long-Lasting Cross-Protection Against Influenza A by Neuraminidase and M2e-based immunization strategies
There is mounting evidence that in the absence of neutralizing antibodies cross-reactive T cells provide protection against pandemic influenza viruses. Here, we compared protection and CD8+ T cellExpand

Expression analysis of the nucleocytoplasmic lectin ‘Orysata’ from rice in Pichia pastoris
The Oryza sativa lectin, abbreviated Orysata, is a mannose‐specific, jacalin‐related lectin expressed in rice plants after exposure to certain stress conditions. Expression of a fusion constructExpand
