Overexpression of monodehydroascorbate reductase in transgenic tobacco confers enhanced tolerance to ozone, salt and polyethylene glycol stresses
TLDR
It is demonstrated that an overexpressed level of MDAR properly confers enhanced tolerance against ozone, salt and PEG stress and reduces hydrogen peroxide level when tested under salt stress.
Defensin-like polypeptide LUREs are pollen tube attractants secreted from synergid cells
TLDR
It is reported that secreted, cysteine-rich polypeptides (CRPs) in a subgroup of defensin-like proteins are attractants derived from the synergid cells of T. fournieri, and they showed activity in vitro to attract competent pollen tubes of their own species and were named as LUREs.
Enhanced tolerance to salt stress and water deficit by overexpressing superoxide dismutase in tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) chloroplasts
TLDR
Results suggested that the overexpressed Cu/Zn-SOD enhances the chloroplast antioxidant system.
Blocking ethylene perception enhances flooding tolerance in rice seedlings.
TLDR
Manipulation of ethylene synthesis or sensitivity through molecular approaches might improve tolerance of flash flooding in rice by reducing ethylene level or sensitivity.
Enhanced tolerance to ozone and drought stresses in transgenic tobacco overexpressing dehydroascorbate reductase in cytosol
TLDR
It is reported for the first time that the elevation of AsA level by targeting DHAR overexpression in cytosol properly provides a significantly enhanced oxidative stress tolerance imposed by drought and salt.
Importance of active oxygen-scavenging system in the recovery of rice seedlings after submergence
TLDR
The data reveal the involvement of active oxygen-scavenging system during recovery of submerged rice seedlings under excessive illumination and ensures a better operation of ascorbic acid–glutathione cycle that helps detoxify H 2 O 2 more efficiently in FR13A.
Detection, isolation and characterization of a root-exuded compound, methyl 3-(4-hydroxyphenyl) propionate, responsible for biological nitrification inhibition by sorghum (Sorghum bicolor).
TLDR
Methyl 3-(4-hydroxyphenyl) propionate is the first compound purified from the root exudates of any species; this is an important step towards better understanding BNI in sorghum.
Over-expression of ascorbate peroxidase in tobacco chloroplasts enhances the tolerance to salt stress and water deficit.
TLDR
The present data indicate that overproducing the cytosolic APX in tobacco chloroplasts reduces the toxicity of H(2)O(2).
Physiological basis of submergence tolerance in rainfed lowland rice ecosystem
TLDR
Germplasm improvement for submergence tolerance is likely to be the best option available for alleviation of the submergence damages, other than construction of extensive drainage systems which require a large investment.
Free fatty acids from the pasture grass Brachiaria humidicola and one of their methyl esters as inhibitors of nitrification
The tropical pasture grass, Brachiaria humidicola (Rendle) Schweick, produces nitrification inhibitory compounds (termed biological nitrification inhibitors or BNIs) in its shoot and root tissues and
