In this study the interplay between the symbiotic and defence signalling pathways in Lotus japonicus was investigated by comparing the responses to Mesorhizobium loti, the symbiotic partner of L. japonicus, and the elicitor flg22, a conserved peptide motif present in flagellar protein of a wide range of bacteria. It was found that defence and symbiotic(More)
Polyamines are cationic molecules that play an important role in the plant response to environmental stresses. The aim of this work is to determine the role of these compounds in the response to salinity of Medicago sativa plants in symbiosis with the soil bacteria Sinorhizobium meliloti. M. sativa plants inoculated with S. meliloti were subjected to 100(More)
The aim of this paper is to describe techniques and algorithms that have been used to design and implement a commercial wireless home network (WHN). Although IEEE 802.15.4 supposes an efficient solution for the lower layers of the communication stack, several key issues are out of its scope. Topology control (TC) of the network, address management, and(More)
Homospermidine is known to be the most abundant polyamine in root nodules of Phaseolus vulgaris induced by Rhizobium tropici. In addition, homospermidine is involved in the stress tolerance of fast-growing rhizobia and in the bacteroid protection from environmental changes. For that reason, in this work, we have investigated the role of the rhizobial(More)
In the current scenario of climate change and increasing water scarcity there is an increased need to combine research efforts for the development of abiotic stress resistant crops, specifically plants able to support water deficit (WD). Polyamines (PAs) have been described as being involved in the regulation of many physiological processes and a variety of(More)
