BACKGROUND With the advent of high throughput genomic tools, it is now possible to undertake detailed molecular studies of individual species outside traditional model organisms. Combined with a good understanding of physiological processes, these tools allow researchers to explore natural diversity, giving a better understanding of biological mechanisms.(More)
Ripening in tomato is predominantly controlled by ethylene, whilst in fruit such as grape, it is predominantly controlled by other hormones. The ripening response of many kiwifruit (Actinidia) species is atypical. The majority of ripening-associated fruit starch hydrolysis, colour change and softening occurs in the apparent absence of ethylene production(More)
Seventeen analogues of 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine were synthesized using three reaction pathways: condensation of phenols with 1-methyl-4-piperidone, reaction of Grignard reagents with 1-methyl-4-piperidone followed by dehydration of the product, and aminomethylation of olefins. The identity of the products of synthesis was established by(More)
