Amaranthus hypochondriacus, a grain amaranth, is a C4 plant noted by its ability to tolerate stressful conditions and produce highly nutritious seeds. These possess an optimal amino acid balance and(More)
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted from plants in response to insect infestation can function as signals for the attraction of predatory/parasitic insects and/or repulsion of herbivores. VOCs(More)
A cDNA, encoding a cysteine protease inhibitor (AhCPI), was isolated from an immature seed cDNA library of grain amaranth (Amaranthus hypochondriacus L.) and characterized. It encoded a polypeptide(More)
Nuclear factor-Y (NF-Y), is a plant heterotrimeric transcription factor constituted by NF-YA, NF-YB and NF-YC subunits. The function of many NF-Y subunits, mostly of the A and B type, has been(More)
Two hydroxyproline-rich glycopeptide systemin (TobHS) precursor proteins known as preproTobHypSys-A and B were recently discovered in tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) [Pearce et al. in Nature(More)
Amaranthus hypochondriacus is a C4 pseudocereal crop capable of producing reasonable grain yields in adverse environmental conditions that limit cereal performance. It accumulates trypsin inhibitors(More)
Grain amaranth is an emerging crop that produces seeds having high quality protein with balanced amino-acid content. However, production is restricted by agronomic limitations that result in yields(More)
