A naturally occurring epigenetic mutation in a gene encoding an SBP-box transcription factor inhibits tomato fruit ripening
A major component in the regulatory network controlling fruit ripening is likely to be the gene at the tomato Colorless non-ripening (Cnr) locus. The Cnr mutation results in colorless fruits with aExpand

A tomato HD-Zip homeobox protein, LeHB-1, plays an important role in floral organogenesis and ripening
Ethylene is required for climacteric fruit ripening. Inhibition of ethylene biosynthesis genes, 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate (ACC) synthase and ACC oxidase, prevents or delays ripening, but itExpand

A comparison of primer sets for detecting 16S rRNA and hydrazine oxidoreductase genes of anaerobic ammonium-oxidizing bacteria in marine sediments
Published polymerase chain reaction primer sets for detecting the genes encoding 16S rRNA gene and hydrazine oxidoreductase (hzo) in anammox bacteria were compared by using the same coastal marineExpand

Respiration and Growth of Shewanella decolorationis S12 with an Azo Compound as the Sole Electron Acceptor
ABSTRACT The ability of Shewanella decolorationis S12 to obtain energy for growth by coupling the oxidation of various electron donors to dissimilatory azoreduction was investigated. ThisExpand

Spatial distribution and abundances of ammonia-oxidizing archaea (AOA) and ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB) in mangrove sediments
We investigated the diversity, spatial distribution, and abundances of ammonia-oxidizing archaea (AOA) and ammonia-oxidizing bacteria (AOB) in sediment samples of different depths collected from aExpand

Diversity and abundance of ammonia-oxidizing prokaryotes in sediments from the coastal Pearl River estuary to the South China Sea
In the present study the diversity and abundance of nitrifying microbes including ammonia-oxidizing archaea (AOA) and betaproteobacteria (beta-AOB) were investigated, along with the physicochemicalExpand

Diversity and abundance of ammonia-oxidizing archaea and bacteria in polluted mangrove sediment.
Ammonia oxidation by microorganisms is a critical process in the nitrogen cycle. Recent research results show that ammonia-oxidizing archaea (AOA) are both abundant and diverse in a range ofExpand

Functional Characterization of the Nuclear Localization Signal for a Suppressor of Posttranscriptional Gene Silencing
ABSTRACT The nucleus-localized C2 protein of Tomato yellow leaf curl virus-China (TYLCV-C) is an active suppressor of posttranscriptional gene silencing (PTGS). Consistently, infection with TYLCV-CExpand

Effects of electron donors and acceptors on anaerobic reduction of azo dyes by Shewanella decolorationis S12
Shewanella decolorationis S12 was able to reduce various azo dyes in a defined medium with formate, lactate, and pyruvate or H2 as electron donors under anaerobic conditions. Purified membranous,Expand
