Ascorbic Acid Deficiency Activates Cell Death and Disease Resistance Responses in Arabidopsis1
TLDR
It is demonstrated that ascorbic acid abundance modifies the threshold for activation of plant innate defense responses via redox mechanisms that are independent of the natural senescence program.
Phenylalanine ammonia-lyase (PAL) and cinnamate 4-hydroxylase (C4H) and catechins (flavan-3-ols) accumulation in tea
TLDR
A positive correlation between catechin contents and gene expression suggested a critical role of the enzymes in catechins biosynthesis and a crosstalk between phenylpropanoid and flavonoid pathways.
Assessment of genetic diversity and plant growth promoting attributes of psychrotolerant bacteria allied with wheat (Triticum aestivum) from the northern hills zone of India
TLDR
Cold-adapted isolates of wheat-associated bacteria from the northern hills zone of India may have application as inoculants for plant growth promotion and biocontrol agents for crops growing under cold climatic conditions.
Expression of SOD and APX genes positively regulates secondary cell wall biosynthesis and promotes plant growth and yield in Arabidopsis under salt stress
TLDR
An important role of PaSOD and RaAPX is revealed in enhancing salt tolerance of transgenic Arabidopsis via increased accumulation of compatible solutes and by regulating lignin biosynthesis in vascular tissue, which provides mechanical strength to plants.
Factors affecting rumen methanogens and methane mitigation strategies
TLDR
The present article aimed to cover comprehensively the different aspects of rumen methanogenesis such as the phylogeny of methanogens, their microbial ecology, factors affecting methane emission, mitigation strategies and need for further study.
An RNA isolation system for plant tissues rich in secondary metabolites
TLDR
A rapid protocol for isolation of RNA, which works well with all the tissues examined so far, and was amenable to downstream applications such as reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), differential display (DD), suppression subtractive hybridization (SSH) library construction, and northern hybridization.
Differential display mediated cloning of anthocyanidin reductase gene from tea (Camellia sinensis) and its relationship with the concentration of epicatechins.
TLDR
A positive correlation between concentration of ECs and CsANR expression was revealed and Expression of CsAnR was down-regulated in response to drought, ABA and GA(3) treatments and up-regulatedIn response to wounding.
