In plant species, the level of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) is essential for cold acclimation. To test whether changes in PUFA levels can lead to the alteration of freezing tolerance in poplar trees, we up- and down-regulated a Populus tomentosa Δ-12 fatty acid desaturase gene (PtFAD2) in the hybrid poplar (P. alba × P. glandulosa) clone 84 K.(More)
Cry3 class toxins are used extensively for biological control of coleopteran larvae. We previously identified a peptide (PCx) from a phage display library that specifically binds Cx-cellulase from the midgut of Anoplophora glabripennis Motschulsky (Asian longhorn beetle) larvae. Here, we added a DNA fragment that encodes the peptide onto either end of the(More)
