Carbon dioxide (CO2) levels this century will alter the protein, micronutrients, and vitamin content of rice grains with potential health consequences for the poorest rice-dependent countries
Rising CO2 levels may induce nutritional deficits (protein, minerals, and vitamins) in the highest rice-consuming countries. Declines of protein and minerals essential for humans, including iron andExpand

Elevated atmospheric [CO2 ] can dramatically increase wheat yields in semi-arid environments and buffer against heat waves.
Wheat production will be impacted by increasing concentration of atmospheric CO2 [CO2 ], which is expected to rise from about 400 μmol mol(-1) in 2015 to 550 μmol mol(-1) by 2050. Changes to plantExpand

New insights into the cellular mechanisms of plant growth at elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations.
Rising atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration ([CO2 ]) significantly influences plant growth, development, and biomass. Increased photosynthesis rate, together with lower stomatal conductance, hasExpand

Lower grain nitrogen content of wheat at elevated CO2 can be improved through post-anthesis NH4+ supplement
Abstract We test the hypothesis that reduction in grain N concentration under elevated CO 2 concentration (e[CO 2 ]) is associated with N types (NH 4 + and NO 3 − ) and their ratios. Wheat ( TriticumExpand

Arsenic speciation dynamics in paddy rice soil-water environment: sources, physico-chemical, and biological factors - A review.
Rice is the main staple carbohydrate source for billions of people worldwide. Natural geogenic and anthropogenic sources has led to high arsenic (As) concentrations in rice grains. This is because AsExpand

Arsenic accumulation in rice (Oryza sativa L.) is influenced by environment and genetic factors.
Arsenic (As) elevation in paddy soils will have a negative impact on both the yield and grain quality of rice (Oryza sativa L.). The mechanistic understanding of As uptake, translocation, and grainExpand

Release of antimicrobial peptides through bromelain hydrolysis of leatherjacket (Meuchenia sp.) insoluble proteins
Antibacterial peptides have been found to be a natural part of animal and plant defence systems. In some cases, antimicrobial peptides have been found to be released by hydrolysis of food proteins.Expand

Manipulating the Phytic Acid Content of Rice Grain Toward Improving Micronutrient Bioavailability
Myo-inositol hexaphosphate, also known as phytic acid (PA), is the most abundant storage form of phosphorus in seeds. PA acts as a strong chelator of metal cations to form phytate and is consideredExpand

Rising CO2 concentration altered wheat grain proteome and flour rheological characteristics.
Wheat cv. H45 was grown under ambient CO2 concentration and Free Air CO2 Enrichment (FACE; e[CO2], ∼550 μmol CO2 mol(-1)). The effect of FACE on wheat grain proteome and associated changes in theExpand

Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) grain proteome response to elevated [CO2] varies between genotypes
Abstract The impact of rising carbon dioxide concentration ([CO 2 ]) in the atmosphere on wheat grain protein concentration and proteome was investigated in this study. Wheat genotypes (H45, SB003,Expand
