Role of myo-inositol phosphate synthase and sucrose synthase genes in plant seed development.
The aim of this review is to highlight the role of myo-inositol phosphate synthase (MIPS), which catalyses the first step in inositol biosynthesis and of sucrose synthase (Sus), an enzyme involved inExpand

Analysis of DNA methylation patterns associated with drought stress response in faba bean (Vicia faba L.) using methylation-sensitive amplification polymorphism (MSAP)
Abstract The effects of drought on water relations, gas exchanges and epigenetic alterations were studied in two faba bean ( Vicia faba L.) genotypes with contrasting levels of drought tolerance. TheExpand

Effect of drought stress on chlorophyll fluorescence, antioxidant enzyme activities and gene expression patterns in faba bean (Vicia faba L.)
ABSTRACT Drought is a major environmental stress that limits faba bean growth, leading to considerable reduction in their productivity. Two genotypes (Giza 3 and Hara) were evaluated under threeExpand

Comparative Expression and Cellular Localization of Myo-inositol Phosphate Synthase (MIPS) in the Wild Type and in an EMS Mutant During Common Bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) Seed Development
In plants, the myo-inositol-1-phosphate synthase (EC 5.5.1.4; MIPS) is an evolutionarily conserved enzyme protein and catalyzes the synthesis of myo-inositol, which is a central molecule required forExpand
