A micromethod for high throughput RNA extraction in forest trees.
This protocol was adapted to a micro-scale by modifying the classical cetyltrimethylammonium protocol developed for pine, and is suitable for applications such as real time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction, cDNA library construction or synthesis of complex targets for microarray analysis.

Increased accumulation of anthocyanins in Fragaria chiloensis fruits by transient suppression of FcMYB1 gene.
Results indicate a role for FcMYB1 in regulation of the branching-point of the anthocyanin/PA biosynthesis determining the discolored phenotype of the white Chilean strawberry fruit. Expand
Changes in antioxidant capacity during development and ripening of goldenberry (Physalis peruviana L.) fruit and in response to 1-methylcyclopropene treatment
Abstract Goldenberry ( Physalis peruviana ) is a climacteric fruit and its ripening is regulated by ethylene. Reports indicate that the fruit contains high level of antioxidant compounds. ToExpand
Development and preliminary evaluation of a 90 K Axiom® SNP array for the allo-octoploid cultivated strawberry Fragaria × ananassa
The Affymetrix IStraw90 Axiom array enables genetic analyses including generation of high-density linkage maps, identification of quantitative trait loci for economically important traits, and genome-wide association studies, thus providing a basis for marker-assisted breeding in this high value crop.

Structural analysis of the alcohol acyltransferase protein family from Cucumis melo shows that enzyme activity depends on an essential solvent channel
The present work aims to understand the molecular mechanism involved in ester biosynthesis in melon fruit and to clarify the importance of the Ala268 residue. Expand
Comparison of transcriptional profiles of flavonoid genes and anthocyanin contents during fruit development of two botanical forms of Fragaria chiloensis ssp. chiloensis.
Difference in fruit pigmentation observed between two botanical forms of Fragaria chiloensis ssp. chiloensis (form chiloensis and form patagonica) was studied through transcriptional and chemicalExpand
Aroma development during ripening of Fragaria chiloensis fruit and participation of an alcohol acyltransferase (FcAAT1) gene.
It can be suggested that the FcAAT1 gene may have a significant role in ester production of F. chiloensis fruit. Expand
Molecular Events Occurring During Softening of Strawberry Fruit
The entire softening process of strawberry fruit is still under active research especially for the great influence of texture on fruit quality and its high impact on fruit shelf life, and therefore it is expected that new and promising information will illuminate the field in the near future.

VpAAT1, a gene encoding an alcohol acyltransferase, is involved in ester biosynthesis during ripening of mountain papaya fruit.
Mountain papaya ( Vasconcellea pubescens ) is a climacteric fruit that develops a strong and characteristic aroma during ripening. Esters are the main volatile compounds produced by the fruit, andExpand
Treatment with 1-MCP and the role of ethylene in aroma development of mountain papaya fruit
Abstract Mountain or highland papaya ( Vasconcellea pubescens ) is a climacteric fruit which develops a strong and characteristic aroma during ripening. The dynamics of aroma volatile productionExpand
