In this report we address the changes in the expression of the genes involved in ROS scavenging and ethylene biosynthesis induced by the inoculation of plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) isolated from potato rhizosphere. The two Bacillus isolates used in this investigation had earlier demonstrated a striking influence on potato tuberization. These(More)
Crop acclimatization to elevated temperature conditions often demands transcriptional reprogramming of an array of genes to evoke protection from heat stress. Previously, we addressed such question in potato and identified GLP1 (Germin-like protein 1), nsLTP (Non specific lipid transfer protein), PI-PLC (phosphoinositide-specific phospholipase-c), CHP(More)
The present study aims to investigate the numerous factors influencing Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated genetic transformation of Chinese cabbage (Brassica rapa ssp. pekinensis). Factors affecting transformation efficiency, such as age of explants, Agrobac-terium concentration, and effect of acetosyringone, pre-cultivation, infection and co-cultivation(More)
Abiotic stresses such as heat, drought, and salinity are major environmental constraints that limit potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) production worldwide. Previously, we found a potential thermo-tolerance gene, named StnsLTP1 from potato using yeast functional screening. Here, we report the functional characterization of StnsLTP1 and its role in multiple(More)
