NAM-1gene polymorphism and grain protein content in Hordeum.
Grain protein content (GPC) is a key quality factor for malting and brewing process. In wheat, a QTL explaining a large part of GPC variation was identified, which co-localizes with a gene encoding aExpand

Characterization of UDP-glucose:protein transglucosylase genes from potato
Many plant autocatalytic glycosyltransferases are implicated in plant polysaccharide biosynthesis. Cloning of cDNAs encoding potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) UDP-Glc:protein transglucosylase (UPTG, ECExpand

Morpho-histology and genotype dependence of in vitro morphogenesis in mature embryo cultures of wheat
Cellular totipotency is one of the basic principles of plant biotechnology. Currently, the success of the procedure used to produce transgenic plants is directly proportional to the successfulExpand

Biotechnological uses of RNAi in plants: risk assessment considerations.
RNAi offers opportunities to generate new traits in genetically modified (GM) plants. Instead of expressing novel proteins, RNAi-based GM plants reduce target gene expression. Silencing of off-targetExpand

Identification of cytosolic Mg2+-dependent soluble inorganic pyrophosphatases in potato and phylogenetic analysis
Using polyclonal antibodies raised against a previously cloned potato Mg2+-dependent soluble inorganic pyrophosphatase (ppa1 gene) [8], a second gene, called ppa2, could be isolated. A single locusExpand

Attacks by a piercing-sucking insect (Myzus persicae Sultzer) or a chewing insect (Leptinotarsa decemlineata Say) on potato plants (Solanum tuberosum L.) induce differential changes in volatile
Plant defensive strategies bring into play blends of compounds dependent on the type of attacker and coming from different synthesis pathways. Interest in the field is mainly focused on volatileExpand

Role of terpenes from aphid‐infested potato on searching and oviposition behavior of Episyrphus balteatus
To cope with pathogen and insect attacks, plants develop different mechanisms of defence, in both direct (physical and chemical) and indirect ways (attractive volatiles to entomophagous beneficials).Expand

Genetic diversity in Lima bean (Phaseolus lunatus L.) as revealed by RAPD markers
The genetic variability of 46 accessions of the Lima bean (P. lunatus L.) including 16 wild forms and 30 landraces belonging to the three cultigroups Big lima, Sieva, Potato, and their intermediates,Expand

Study of precursors responsible for off-flavor formation during storage of potato flakes.
Off-flavors frequently appear during the storage of potato flakes. Volatile profile analysis performed by solid-phase microextraction-gas chromatography-mass spectrometry revealed that hexanal is theExpand

Oxylipin profile and antioxidant status of potato tubers during extended storage at room temperature.
Potato tubers (cv. Bintje) (Solanum tuberosum L.) were stored under extreme conditions at 20 degrees C for 350 days without sprout inhibitors in order to assess whether aging- and/orExpand
