Enhanced Reactive Oxygen Species Scavenging by Overproduction of Superoxide Dismutase and Catalase Delays Postharvest Physiological Deterioration of Cassava Storage Roots1[C][W][OA]
Overproduction of the copper/zinc superoxide dismutase and catalase in transgenic cassava dramatically improves ROS scavenging ability, abiotic stress resistance, and delayed postharvestExpand
Cloning of an H+-PPase gene from Thellungiella halophila and its heterologous expression to improve tobacco salt tolerance.
An H(+)-pyrophosphatase (PPase) gene named TsVP involved in basic biochemical and physiological mechanisms was cloned from Thellungiella halophila. The deduced translation product has similarExpand
Increased expression of native cytosolic Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase and ascorbate peroxidase improves tolerance to oxidative and chilling stresses in cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz)
BackgroundCassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) is a tropical root crop, and is therefore, extremely sensitive to low temperature; its antioxidative response is pivotal for its survival under stress.Expand
Heterologous expression of vacuolar H+-PPase enhances the electrochemical gradient across the vacuolar membrane and improves tobacco cell salt tolerance
Summary.The vacuolar H+-translocating inorganic pyrophosphatase (H+-PPase) uses pyrophosphate as substrate to generate the proton electrochemical gradient across the vacuolar membrane to acidifyExpand
Generation of marker-free transgenic maize with improved salt tolerance using the FLP/FRT recombination system.
The possible release of selectable marker genes from genetically modified transgenic plants, or of gut microbes, to the environment, has raised worldwide public concerns. In this study, we showed theExpand
Coupled expression of Cu/Zn-superoxide dismutase and catalase in cassava improves tolerance against cold and drought stresses
Recently we reported that the joint expression of cassava Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase (MeCu/ZnSOD) and catalase (MeCAT1) prolonged the shelf life of cassava storage-roots by the stabilization ofExpand
Efficient transformation of beet (Beta vulgaris) and production of plants with improved salt-tolerance
Small bud tips of 1–3 mm in length were taken from multiple shoot clumps that derived from immature inflorescence cultures of beet as recipient for the Agrobacterium-mediated transformation andExpand
The transgene pyramiding tobacco with betaine synthesis and heterologous expression of AtNHX1 is more tolerant to salt stress than either of the tobacco lines with betaine synthesis or AtNHX1.
Previous studies have shown that the overexpression of betA (encoding choline dehydrogenase from Escherichia coli) or AtNHX1 (a vacuolar Na(+)/H(+) antiport from Arabidopsis thaliana) gene canExpand
Expression of Cry1Aa in cassava improves its insect resistance against Helicoverpa armigera
Lepidopteran insects affect cassava production globally, especially in intercropping system. The expression of Cry toxins in transgenic crops has contributed to an efficient control of insect pests,Expand
Genetic Engineering of Maize (Zea mays L.) with Improved Grain Nutrients.
Cell-wall invertase plays important roles in the grain filling of crop plants. However, its functions in the improvement of grain nutrients have not been investigated. In this work, the stableExpand
