Biochemical Changes throughout Grape Berry Development and Fruit and Wine Quality
Wine is made up of more than one thousand compounds, the majority of which, such as vitamins and minerals, come from the grapes, while others, like ethanol and glycerol, are products of theExpand

Aquaporins are multifunctional water and solute transporters highly divergent in living organisms.
Aquaporins (AQPs) are ubiquitous membrane proteins whose identification, pioneered by Peter Agre's team in the early nineties, provided a molecular basis for transmembrane water transport, which wasExpand

Physiological, biochemical and molecular changes occurring during olive development and ripening.
Since ancient times the olive tree (Olea europaea), an evergreen drought- and moderately salt-tolerant species, has been cultivated for its oil and fruit in the Mediterranean basin. Olive is uniqueExpand

Regulation by salt of vacuolar H+-ATPase and H+-pyrophosphatase activities and Na+/H+ exchange
Over the last decades several efforts have been carried out to find out the mechanisms of salt homeostasis in plants and, more recently, to identify genes implicated in salt tolerance, with someExpand

Membrane transport, sensing and signaling in plant adaptation to environmental stress.
Plants are generally well adapted to a wide range of environmental conditions. Even though they have notably prospered in our planet, stressful conditions such as salinity, drought and cold or heat,Expand

Berry Phenolics of Grapevine under Challenging Environments
Plant phenolics have been for many years a theme of major scientific and applied interest. Grape berry phenolics contribute to organoleptic properties, color and protection against environmentalExpand

Copper transport and compartmentation in grape cells.
Copper-based fungicides have been widely used against several grapevine (Vitis vinifera L.) diseases since the late 1800s when the Bordeaux mixture was developed, but their intensive use has raisedExpand

Pathways of Glucose Regulation of Monosaccharide Transport in Grape Cells1
Grape (Vitis vinifera) heterotrophic suspension-cultured cells were used as a model system to study glucose (Glc) transport and its regulation. Cells transported d-[14C]Glc according to simpleExpand

Polyols in grape berry: transport and metabolic adjustments as a physiological strategy for water-deficit stress tolerance in grapevine.
Polyols are important metabolites that often function as carbon and energy sources and/or osmoprotective solutes in some plants. In grapevine, and in the grape berry in particular, the molecularExpand

Activity of tonoplast proton pumps and Na+/H+ exchange in potato cell cultures is modulated by salt.
The efficient exclusion of excess Na from the cytoplasm and vacuolar Na(+) accumulation are the main mechanisms for the adaptation of plants to salt stress. This is typically carried out byExpand
