Genetic Engineering of Terpenoid Metabolism Attracts Bodyguards to Arabidopsis
Transgenic Arabidopsis thaliana plants emitted two new isoprenoids that attracted carnivorous predatory mites that aid the plants' defense mechanisms, and metabolic engineering of terpenoids holds particular promise. Expand
Alpha-gliadin genes from the A, B, and D genomes of wheat contain different sets of celiac disease epitopes
The analysis shows that α-gliadin sequences from the three genomes of bread wheat form distinct groups, indicating that the three genome contribute differently to epitope content. Expand
Nicotiana benthamiana as a Production Platform for Artemisinin Precursors
This work shows that agroinfiltration of N. bentamiana can be used as a model to study the production of sesquiterpenoid pharmaceutical compounds and the interaction between the ectopically introduced pathway and the endogenous metabolism of the plant is discussed. Expand
The metabolite chemotype of Nicotiana benthamiana transiently expressing artemisinin biosynthetic pathway genes is a function of CYP71AV1 type and relative gene dosage.
A systematic comparison of artemisinin biosynthesis genes that may be involved in determining the chemotype (CYP71AV1, DBR2 and ALDH1) is presented and upon transient expression in Nicotiana benthamiana, AMOLAP displayed a higher enzyme activity than AMOHAP. Expand
Removing celiac disease-related gluten proteins from bread wheat while retaining technological properties: a study with Chinese Spring deletion lines
The effects of deleting individual gluten loci on both the level of T-cell stimulatory epitopes in the gluten proteome and the technological properties of the flour were analyzed using a set of deletion lines of Triticum aestivum cv. Expand
Detailed analysis of the expression of an alpha-gliadin promoter and the deposition of alpha-gliadin protein during wheat grain development.
Observed differences in expression regulator motifs between the alpha-gliadin genes on the different genomes (A and B) of bread wheat leads to a better understanding how alpha- gliadin expression can be controlled. Expand
