We discuss mechanisms and factors that influence levels and stability of expressed heterologous proteins in crop plants. We have seen substantial progress in this field over the past two decades in model experimental organisms such as Arabidopsis and tobacco. There is no question such studies have resulted in furthering our understanding of key processes in(More)
Spores of pathogenic fungi are virtually ubiquitous and cause human disease and severe losses in crops. The endophytic fungi Alternaria species produce host-selective phytotoxins. Alt a 1 is a strongly allergenic protein found in A. alternata that causes severe asthma. Despite the well-established pathogenicity of Alt a 1, the molecular mechanisms(More)
MAPKs constitute a family of serine/threonine protein kinase that has been highly conserved during evolution, with members found in such diverse organisms as mammals, Xenopus and yeast (Pelech and Shanghera, 1992; Blumer and Johnson, 1994; Davis, 1994; Marshall, 1994; Herskowitz, 1995; Schultz et al., 1995). Their activation requires phosphorylation on both(More)
