The commercialisation of GM crops in Europe is practically non-existent at the present time. The European Commission has instigated changes to the regulatory process to address the concerns of consumers and member states and to pave the way for removing the current moratorium. With regard to the safety of GM crops and products, the current risk assessment(More)
Constitutive overexpression of a protein involved in plant defense mechanisms to disease is one of the strategies proposed to increase plant tolerance to fungal pathogens. A hybrid endochitinase gene under a constitutive promoter was introduced by Agrobacterium-mediated transformation into a winter-type oilseed rape (Brassica napus var. oleifera) inbred(More)
The patterns of in vivo protein synthesis in soybean cell suspensions were compared by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis after the cells had been submitted to different stress conditions : treatment with Phytophthora megasperma (Pmg) cell wall elicitors, 2,4-D starvation and heat shock (HS) temperatures. Changes in protein synthesis patterns induced after(More)
Auxin starvation of soybean cell suspensions results in the arrest of cell growth after about 4 days. The addition of 4 μM 2,4-D enables cells to divide again after a lag phase of 1 day. By comparing the patterns of in vivo and in vitro protein synthesis, we have identified two sets of polypeptides whose synthesis is positively or negatively regulated by(More)
The expression of the maize gene coding for a hydroxyproline-rich glycoprotein (HRGP) has been studied by measuring the mRNA accumulation after wounding or ethylene treatment. RNA blot and in situ hybridization techniques have been used. The temporal and tissue-specific expression has been observed: the cells related to the vascular system show the more(More)
