Enhanced oxidative-stress defense in transgenic potato expressing tomato Cu,Zn superoxide dismutases
Several transgenic potato lines harboring either the cytosolic or the chl SOD genes of tomato showed elevated tolerance to the superoxide-generating herbicide paraquat (methyl viologen), and root cultures from transgenic lines that harbored the additional cyt Cu,Zn SOD gene of tomato were tolerant to methyl viOLOGen.
Removal of metal ions from aqueous solutions by Penicillium biomass: Kinetic and uptake parameters
The uptake and binding of Ni, Zn, Cd, and Pb by the mycelium of Penicillium digitatum are highly pH-sensitive, being severely inhibited below pH 3. In the case of Ni, Zn, and Cd, H+ inhibits…
Ethylene and in vitro culture of potato: suppression of ethylene generation vastly improves protoplast yield, plating efficiency and transient expression of an alien gene
The capability of polyethylene glycol treated potato protoplast to produce microcalli was vastly increased by the addition of silver thiosulfate during exposure of protoplasts to Ca(NO3)2 following the polyethylenes glycol treatment.
Study of the inheritance of sex expression in the cucumber. The interaction of major genes with modifying genetic and non-genetic factors

Evidence was presented, indicating that this sex controlling ability of GA and the modifying genes may be based on physiological conditions common to those two genetic and nongenetic factors.
Improvement of plant regeneration and GUS expression in scutellar wheat calli by optimization of culture conditions and DNA-microprojectile delivery procedures

It is found that the regeneration of scutellar calli of wheat can be rendered highly efficient and considerably accelerated by a liquid culture phase in screen rafts and a protocol that includes all these features leads to several-fold higher transient expression of the reporter gene than have previously published procedures.
Citrus cell culture: Isolation of protoplasts, plating densities, effect of mutagens and regeneration of embryos
The molecular basis for rRNA‐dependent spectinomycin resistance in Nicotiana chloroplasts
Perturbation of the stem is proposed to be the molecular‐genetic basis for rRNA‐dependent spectinomycin resistance in chloroplasts.
Inhibition of fungal growth by wheat germ agglutinin
The effect on such fungi of wheat germ agglutinin (WGA), a lectin which interacts specifically with chitin oligomers, is studied.
Tissue-Specific Expression of the Tobacco Mosaic Virus Movement Protein in Transgenic Potato Plants Alters Plasmodesmal Function and Carbohydrate Partitioning
Dye-coupling experiments established that expression of the TMV-MP alters plasmodesmal function in both potato leaves and tubers when expressed in the respective tissues, and the possible role of plasmodegal function in controlling these processes is discussed.
