Auxins are defined mainly by a set of physiological actions, but the structure-effect relationship still is based on chemical intuition. Currently a well-defined auxin molecular structure is not available. The existence of different auxin binding proteins and mechanisms of auxin action, the wide diversity of the auxin molecules, and the pleiotropic effects… (More)
We report for the first time that expression of potato PR10a gene in faba bean causes enhanced tolerance to drought and salinity. Grain legumes such as soybean (Glycine max L. Merrill), pea (Pisum sativum L.) and faba bean (Vicia faba L.) are staple sources of protein for human and animal nutrition. Among grain legumes, faba bean is particularly sensitive… (More)
From the Editorial Boards of SIVB and IAPB, we extend a sincere thank you to the 168 individuals who reviewed manuscripts for In Vitro Cellular and Developmental Biology-Plant in 2016. The journal would not exist without your tireless, timely, thoughtful, and thorough work.
level. Consequences for medical considerations and social and political movements followed soon. A deeper understanding of evolutionary processes was encountered and the pass was laid for the rise of molecular cell biology. To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Mendel's fundamental publication, a compact symposium with four keynote speakers was held at the… (More)
