The beneficial endophyte Trichoderma hamatum isolate DIS 219b promotes growth and delays the onset of the drought response in Theobroma cacao
TLDR
The primary direct effect of DIS 219b colonization was promotion of root growth, regardless of water status, and an increase in water content which it is proposed caused a delay in many aspects of the drought response of cacao.
Significance of Antioxidant Potential of Plants and its Relevance to Therapeutic Applications
TLDR
The physiology and redox biology of both plants and humans are reviewed to improve the understanding of plant antioxidants as therapeutic entities and the applications and limitations of antioxidant activity measurement assays were highlighted to identify the precise path to be followed for future research in the area of plant antioxidant research.
Bacterial degradation of chlorophenols and their derivatives
TLDR
The biochemical and genetic basis of the degradation of CPs and their derivatives is described, which includes the metabolic pathways for degradation in bacteria and the genes and enzymes involved in the degradation in various CPs.
The diversity of fungal genome
TLDR
It is found that fungal genomes are very diverse in nature and the average coding genes of Oomycota species are almost doubled than that of Acomycota and BasidiomyCota fungus.
Additional freeze hardiness in wheat acquired by exposure to -3 degreesC is associated with extensive physiological, morphological, and molecular changes.
TLDR
Results indicate that the enhanced freezing tolerance of SZA is correlated with a wide diversity of changes, indicating that the additional freezing tolerance is the result of complex biological processes.
Identification of new members of the MAPK gene family in plants shows diverse conserved domains and novel activation loop variants
TLDR
The study showed the presence of several new activation loop motifs and diverse conserved domains in MAPKs, the most downstream module of the three tier MAPK cascade, which is of critical importance in plants and other eukaryotic organisms.
Expression of thermostable bacterial beta-glucosidase (BglB) in transgenic tobacco plants.
TLDR
The potential of utilizing transgenic tobacco for mass production of beta-glucosidase BglB of Thermotoga maritima is demonstrated, with the goal of cost-effective production of the enzyme for the application in bioconversion of lignocellulosic biomass.
Detection of starch adulteration in onion powder by FT-NIR and FT-IR spectroscopy.
TLDR
The FT-NIR data were of greater predictive value than the FT-IR data, and the first three principal component loadings and β coefficients of the PLSR model revealed starch-related absorption.
Canopy photosynthesis, evapotranspiration, leaf nitrogen, and transcription profiles of maize in response to CO2 enrichment
TLDR
It is concluded that maize did not exhibit enhanced growth or photosynthesis in response to CO2 enrichment but a number of molecular and physiological processes including those involved in stomatal relations were affected by growth in elevated Ca.
