Characterization of Buckwheat Seed Storage Proteins
The major storage protein of buckwheat seed is the 13S globulin. Separation of buckwheat seed proteins by sucrose density gradient revealed the existence of an additional new minor storage protein.Expand
Self-incompatibility of Prunus tenella and evidence that reproductively isolated species of Prunus have different SFB alleles coupled with an identical S-RNase allele.
Many species of Prunus display an S-RNase-based gametophytic self-incompatibility (SI), controlled by a single highly polymorphic multigene complex termed the S-locus. This comprises tightly linkedExpand
Characterization of an aspartic proteinase activity in buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum Moench) seeds.
The pepstatin A sensitive acidic proteolytic activity of total protein extracts of buckwheat seeds has been analyzed in developing, mature, and germinating seeds by activity measurements as well asExpand
Expression analysis of buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum Moench) metallothionein-like gene (MT3) under different stress and physiological conditions.
The buckwheat metallothionein-like (MT3) gene expression was studied throughout seed and leaf development, as well as under the influence of different external stimuli. MT3 mRNAs were detected fromExpand
Ubiquitous aspartic proteinase as an actor in the stress response in buckwheat.
The aspartic protease (FeAP9) gene from buckwheat resembles the exon-intron structure characteristic for typical aspartic proteinases, including the presence of the leader intron in the 5'-UTR. RTExpand
Phytodecta fornicata Brüggemann resistance mediated by oryzacystatin II proteinase inhibitor transgene
Phytodecta fornicata Brüggemann is a serious pest of alfalfa (Medicagosativa L.) that causes significant crop loss in the Balkan peninsula of Europe. We introduced a wound-inducible oryzacystatin IIExpand
Two types of aspartic proteinases from buckwheat seed--gene structure and expression analysis.
Two types of aspartic proteinase (AP) genes have been isolated from the cDNA library of developing buckwheat seeds. Analysis of their sequences showed that one of these, FeAP9, resembled theExpand
Tissue expression analysis of FeMT3, a drought and oxidative stress related metallothionein gene from buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum).
Metallothionein type 3 (MT3) expression has previously been detected in leaves, fruits, and developing somatic embryos in different plant species. However, specific tissular and cellular localizationExpand
Basic RNases of wild almond (Prunus webbii): cloning and characterization of six new S-RNase and one "non-S RNase" genes.
In order to investigate the S-RNase allele structure of a Prunus webbii population from the Montenegrin region of the Balkans, we analyzed 10 Prunus webbii accessions. We detected 10 differentExpand
Detection of Proteins Possibly Involved in Self-Incompatibility Response in Distylous Buckwheat
Buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum Moench) is a heterostylous plant displaying heteromorphic sporophytic self-incompatibility (SI). In order to detect proteins involved in SI, pistils from both long andExpand
