The high oil content and suitable fatty acid composition of the seeds are two arguments to promote Jatropha curcas L. as a promising biodiesel crop. For seed yielding crops as J. curcas, it can be expected that successful pollination is a key process affecting oil yield and oil quality. Field experiments were conducted in Zambia to study the effects of(More)
We used expressed sequence tag library and whole genome sequence mining to identify a suite of putative desaturase genes representing the four main activities required for production of polyunsaturated fatty acids in hemp seed oil. Phylogenetic-based classification and developing seed transcriptome analysis informed selection for further analysis of one of(More)
Proteins in sieve tube exudate from Ricinus communis L., Acer pseudoplatanus L., Aesculus hippocastanum L., Cucumis melo L., and two cultivars each of Cucumis sativus L., Cucurbita pepo L. and Cucurbita maxima Duchesne were fractionated and compared using polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Striking differences in major exudate proteins were displayed among(More)
