The va gene is used in commercial Burley tobacco cultivars including cv TN 86 to confer resistance to tobacco vein mottling virus (TVMV) and, to some extent, other potyviruses. A naturally occurring strain of TVMV (TVMV-S), which overcomes this resistance, was isolated from TN 86 plants. To investigate the mechanism by which TVMV-S overcomes va gene(More)
One of the main goals in radiobiology research is to enhance radiotherapy effectiveness without provoking any increase in toxicity. In this context, it has been proposed that electromagnetic fields (EMFs), known to be modulators of proliferation rate, enhancers of apoptosis and inductors of genotoxicity, might control tumor recruitment and, thus, provide(More)
