Further evidence of a cybridization requirement for plant regeneration from citrus leaf protoplasts following somatic fusion
The results support previous reports indicating that acquisition of the mitochondria of embryogenic protoplast by leaf protoplasts is a prerequisite for recovering plants with the leaf parent phenotype via somatic embryogenesis following somatic fusion. Expand
Blood orange juice inhibits fat accumulation in mice
The findings suggest that multiple components present in the Moro orange juice might act synergistically to inhibit fat accumulation, and that Moro juice anti-obesity effect on fat accumulation cannot be explained only by its anthocyanin content. Expand
New Promising Citrus Triploid Hybrids Selected from Crosses between Monoembryonic Diploid Female and Tetraploid Male Parents
The main characteristics of triploid hybrids from 22 different parents are reported, including sweet orange, mandarin, clementine, grapefruit, and Fortunella hindsii, which are important in obtaining seedless hybrids similar to a parent after genera- tions of backcrossing. Expand
Proteome analysis of Citrus sinensis L. (Osbeck) flesh at ripening time.
The potential role of protein differential expression between Moro and Cadenera fruits was discussed, and proteomic results were compared with the known variations of transcripts of the same fruits, confirming the necessity to associate both proteomic and transcriptomic approaches in order to achieve a more complete characterization of the biological system.

Characterization of the glutathione S-transferase gene family through ESTs and expression analyses within common and pigmented cultivars of Citrus sinensis (L.) Osbeck
Two sequences, a Phi class GST and a Mapeg class GST, could be involved in the conjugation of anthocyanin pigments and in their transport into the vacuole, specifically in fruit flesh of the pigmented cultivar. Expand
Expression analysis in response to low temperature stress in blood oranges: implication of the flavonoid biosynthetic pathway.
Interestingly, among the genes encoding for the regulatory proteins, several transcription factors have been identified for the first time as cold responsive genes in plants, indicating novel investigation lanes which should receive special attention in the future. Expand
Anthocyaninless Cultivars of Sweet Orange Lack to Express the UDP-Glucose Flavonoid 3-O-Glucosyl Transferase
In this study we isolated the partial cDNA clone of three enzymes active in the late steps of anthocyanins biosynthetic pathway such as DFR, ANS and UFGT from Citrus sinensis (L) Osbeck. TheExpand
Construction of genetic maps for Citrus aurantium and C. latipes based on AFLP, RAPD and RFLP markers
L'etude d'un plus grand nombre d'individus apparait necessaire pour augmenter the fiabilite de the carte obtenue et entreprendre l'analyse des loci des caracteres quantitatifs (QTL). Expand
Noemi Controls Production of Flavonoid Pigments and Fruit Acidity and Illustrates the Domestication Routes of Modern Citrus Varieties
The identification of Noemi, which encodes a basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factor and which controls these apparently unrelated processes, and the characterization of the Noemi locus in a number of varieties of Citron indicates that one specific mutation is ancient. Expand
Quantitative evaluation of Tarocco sweet orange fruit shape using optoelectronic elliptic Fourier based analysis
Blood orange cultivars of the sweet orange [Citrus sinensis (L.) Osbeck] differ from the common sweet orange group (Valencia Late, Washington navel, Navelina) by the presence in the flesh andExpand
