Arsenic hazards: strategies for tolerance and remediation by plants.
Arsenic toxicity has become a global concern owing to the ever-increasing contamination of water, soil and crops in many regions of the world. To limit the detrimental impact of arsenic compounds,Expand

Effect of arsenic on growth, oxidative stress, and antioxidant system in rice seedlings.
The physiological, biochemical, and proteomic changes in germinating rice seedlings were investigated under arsenic stress. A marked decrease in germination percentage, shoot, and root elongation asExpand

RNA-Guided Genome Editing for Target Gene Mutations in Wheat
The clustered, regularly interspaced, short palindromic repeats (CRISPR) and CRISPR-associated protein (Cas) system has been used as an efficient tool for genome editing. We report the application ofExpand

Plants as bioreactors for the production of vaccine antigens
Abstract Plants have been identified as promising expression systems for commercial production of vaccine antigens. In phase I clinical trials several plant-derived vaccine antigens have beenExpand

Recent advances in arsenic accumulation and metabolism in rice
Arsenic is commonly present in subsoil and is a carcinogen in humans. Rice takes up arsenic and it accumulates in different plant parts, including grains, at levels several-fold higher than the soil.Expand

EST-derived SSR markers in Jatropha curcas L.: development, characterization, polymorphism, and transferability across the species/genera
A total of 12,080 sequences, including 5,851 transcriptome contigs developed at NBRI and 5,002 singlets and 1,227 contigs assembled from 13,201 expressed sequence tags (ESTs) of Jatropha curcas fromExpand

Comparative transcriptome analysis of arsenate and arsenite stresses in rice seedlings.
The effect of arsenic (As) exposure on genome-wide expression was examined in rice (Oryza sativa L., ssp. Indica). A group of defense and stress-responsive genes, transporters, heat-shock proteins,Expand

RNA interference for the control of whiteflies (Bemisia tabaci) by oral route
RNA interference (RNAi)-mediated gene silencing was explored for the control of sap-sucking pest Bemisia tabaci, commonly known as whitefly. dsRNAs and siRNAs were synthesized from five differentExpand

Universal Plant DNA Barcode Loci May Not Work in Complex Groups: A Case Study with Indian Berberis Species
Background The concept of DNA barcoding for species identification has gained considerable momentum in animals because of fairly successful species identification using cytochrome oxidase I (COI). InExpand

Conserved nucleotide sequences in highly expressed genes in plants
Genes that code for proteins expressed at high and low levels in plants were classified into separate data sets. The two data sets were analysed to identify the conserved nucleotide sequences thatExpand
