Enhanced accumulation of BiP in transgenic plants confers tolerance to water stress.
The binding protein (BiP) is an important component of endoplasmic reticulum stress response of cells. Despite extensive studies in cultured cells, a protective function of BiP against stress has notExpand

Influence of the antibiotic timentin on plant regeneration of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) cultivars
Abstract Cotyledon explants of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill. cvs 'Santa Clara', 'Firme' mutant, 'IPA-5' and 'IPA-6') were excised from 8- to 10-day-old in vitro-grown seedlings. FourExpand

In vitro selection of yellow passion fruit genotypes for resistance to Fusarium vascular wilt
Fusarium vascular wilt (caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. passiflorae) is a limiting factor in the cultivation of yellow passion fruit (Passiflora edulis). Since there is no effective andExpand
