Abscisic acid signaling through cyclic ADP-ribose in plants.
Abscisic acid (ABA) is the primary hormone that mediates plant responses to stresses such as cold, drought, and salinity. Single-cell microinjection experiments in tomato were used to identify… Expand
Leaf Isoprene Emission Rate Is Dependent on Leaf Development and the Level of Isoprene Synthase
Isoprene (2-methyl-1,3-butadiene) is a major volatile hydrocarbon produced by many plant species. Here we report that in velvet bean (Mucuna sp.), isoprene emission is strongly dependent on leaf… Expand

Arguments about whether process or product should be the focus of regulation are stalling progress, says Jennifer Kuzma.
Renegotiating GM crop regulation
In 2010, more than 85% of the corn acreage and more than 90% of the soybean acreage in the USA was planted with genetically modified (GM) crops (USDA, 2010). Most of those crops contained transgenes… Expand
Recommendations for oversight of nanobiotechnology: dynamic oversight for complex and convergent technology
Federal oversight of nanobiotechnology in the U.S. has been fragmented and incremental. The prevailing approach has been to use existing laws and other administrative mechanisms for oversight.… Expand
Nanotechnology in animal production—Upstream assessment of applications
- J. Kuzma
- 1 May 2010
Abstract Agrifood nanotechnology is at critical stage in which analysis and deliberation can help shape funding priorities for research and development, risk assessment, and oversight activities.… Expand
Wicked evolution: Can we address the sociobiological dilemma of pesticide resistance?
Resistance to insecticides and herbicides has cost billions of U.S. dollars in the agricultural sector and could result in millions of lives lost to insect-vectored diseases. We mostly continue to… Expand
A roadmap for gene drives: using institutional analysis and development to frame research needs and governance in a systems context
ABSTRACTThe deployment of gene drives is emerging as an alternative for protecting endangered species, controlling agricultural pests, and reducing vector-borne diseases. This paper reports on a… Expand
