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

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

Enhanced Methanol Production in Plants Provides Broad Spectrum Insect Resistance
Plants naturally emit methanol as volatile organic compound. Methanol is toxic to insect pests; but the quantity produced by most of the plants is not enough to protect them against invading insectExpand

Enhanced Whitefly Resistance in Transgenic Tobacco Plants Expressing Double Stranded RNA of v-ATPase A Gene
Background Expression of double strand RNA (dsRNA) designed against important insect genes in transgenic plants have been shown to give protection against pests through RNA interference (RNAi), thusExpand

Molecular Characterization of Vitellogenin and Vitellogenin Receptor of Bemisia tabaci
Vitellogenin (Vg) plays vital role in oocytes and embryo development in insects. Vg is synthesized in the fat body, moves through haemolymph and accumulates in oocytes. Vitellogenin receptors (VgR)Expand

Molecular Characterization and Global Expression Analysis of Lectin Receptor Kinases in Bread Wheat (Triticum aestivum)
Lectin receptor kinases (LRKs) play a critical role in plants during development and stress conditions, but a comprehensive analysis at genome level is still not carried out in Triticum aestivum.Expand

Receptors of Garlic (Allium sativum) Lectins and Their Role in Insecticidal Action
Garlic (Allium sativum) lectins are promising candidate molecules for the protection against chewing (lepidopteran) as well as sap sucking (homopteran) insect pests. Molecular mechanism of toxicityExpand

Identification of Fibrinogen-Binding Proteins of Aspergillus fumigatus Using Proteomic Approach
Aspergillus fumigatus, the main etiological agent for various forms of human aspergillosis, gets access to the respiratory system of human host by inhalation of airborne conidia. These conidiaExpand

Transcriptomic and Proteomic Profile of Aspergillus fumigatus on Exposure to Artemisinin
Artemisinin, an antimalarial drug, and its derivatives are reported to have antifungal activity against some fungi. We report its antifungal activity against Aspergillus fumigatus (A. fumigatus), aExpand

Resolving the functions of peptidylprolyl isomerases: insights from the mutagenesis of the nuclear FKBP25 enzyme.
Peptidylprolyl isomerases have been implicated in chromatin regulation through their association with histones, chromatin-modifying enzymes and DNA-binding transcription factors. As with otherExpand
