Characterization of the 9-cis-epoxycarotenoid dioxygenase gene family and the regulation of abscisic acid biosynthesis in avocado.
Three genes encoding NCED cleavage-like enzymes were cloned from avocado fruit and results indicate that ABA biosynthesis in avocado is regulated at the level of carotenoid cleavage. Expand
A class I chitinase from soybean seed coat.
The chitinase is expressed late in seed development, with particularly high expression in the seed coat, and Expression was also evident in the late stages of development of the pod, root, leaf, and embryo, and in tissues responding to pathogen infection. Expand
Ethylene biosynthesis in Regnellidium diphyllum and Marsilea quadrifolia
It appears that the formation of ethylene in both ferns occurs mainly, if not only, via an ACC-independent route, even though the capacity to synthesize ACC is present in these lower plants. Expand
