Abiotic stresses, such as drought and high salinity, are major factors that limit plant growth and productivity. Late embryogenesis abundant (LEA) proteins are members of a diverse, multigene family closely associated with tolerance to abiotic stresses in numerous organisms. We examined the function of SmLEA2, previously isolated from Salvia miltiorrhiza,(More)
Gentiana macrophylla, a medicinal plant with significant pharmacological properties, contains the bioactive compound gentiopicroside. Methyl jasmonate (MeJA) is an effective elicitor for enhancing the production of such compounds. However, little is known about MeJA-mediated biosynthesis of gentiopicroside. We investigated this phenomenon as well as gene(More)
The phenomenon of phase variation in the insect-pathogenic bacterium Xenorhabdus luminescens was investigated. Differential activity of the lipase enzyme (EC 3.1.1.3) was observed between the two phases of the bacteria. The enzyme was found to be secreted into the culture medium, and about five to six times greater specific activity was secreted by the(More)
Xenorhahdus lurninescens is a luminous bacterium which is symbiotic with the entomopathogenic nematode Hererorhabdiris. The bacteria play an important role in pathogenesis of insect larvae. Once the nematode enters the larvae, Xennrhabdus spp are released from the gut of the nematode into the hemocoel of the insect. Here both the bacteria and the nematodes(More)
