Antioxidant activities and anthocyanin content of fresh fruits of common fig (Ficus carica L.).
TLDR
Fruits of the Mission variety contained the highest levels of polyphenols, flavonoids, and anthocyanins and exhibited the highest antioxidant capacity.
The Fig: Botany, Horticulture, and Breeding
This chapter reviews the breeding and genetic variation of fig, and some genetic resources; horticultural methods for fig; postharvest physiology and handling; relevance to human health; and as a
Arabidopsis thaliana as a Model System for Graft Union Development in Homografts and Heterografts
TLDR
It is concluded that homografting and heterografts of Arabidopsis inflorescence stems is a convenient and reproducible method for studying the fundamental cellular genetic and molecular aspects of grafting biology.
Temperature Effects on Dormancy Completion of Vegetative Buds in Apple
TLDR
A new response curve for vegetative budbreak is proposed in 'Golden Delicious∑ apple, within a temperature range between 0 to 15 OC', based on the data collected here.
High expression of transgene protein in Spirodela
TLDR
A stable, transgenic, GFP expression level >25% of total soluble protein is demonstrated for the S. oligorrhiza system, making it among the higher expressing systems for nuclear transformation in a higher plant.
Plant coloration undermines herbivorous insect camouflage.
TLDR
It is claimed that the enormous variations in coloration of leaves, petioles and stems as well as of flowers and fruits undermine the camouflage of invertebrate herbivores, especially insects, and it is assumed that the same principle might operate in certain animal-parasite interactions.
Surface signaling in pathogenesis.
TLDR
Genes uniquely expressed during appressoria formation induced by topography and surface chemicals have been isolated and disruption of some of them has been shown to decrease virulence on the hosts.
Callus induction and regeneration in Spirodela and Lemna
TLDR
This work reports the establishment of an efficient tissue culture cycle (callus induction, callus growth and plant regeneration) for Spirodela oligorrhiza Hegelm SP, SpiroDela punctata 8717 and Lemna gibba var.
Development of a transgenic early flowering pear (Pyrus communis L.) genotype by RNAi silencing of PcTFL1-1 and PcTFL1-2
Trees require a long maturation period, known as juvenile phase, before they can reproduce, complicating their genetic improvement as compared to annual plants. ‘Spadona’, one of the most important
