Tetranychus cinnabarinus (Acari: Tetranychidae) is a worldwide polyphagous agricultural pest that has the title of resistance champion among arthropods. We reported previously the identification of the acaricidal compound β-sitosterol from Mentha piperita and Inula japonica. However, the acaricidal mechanism of β-sitosterol is unclear. Due to the limited(More)
Raspberry ketone accounts for the characteristic aroma of the raspberry fruit. A bifunctional enzyme with both chalcone synthase (CHS) and benzalacetone synthase (BAS) activity is thought to play a crucial role in the synthesis of p-hydroxybenzalacetone, yet the in vitro enzymatic properties and reaction products of the CHS/BAS recombinant enzyme from(More)
Huping jujube is widely cultivated in northern China. PcPKS5, a resveratrol synthase (STS) gene, contains all functionally divergent plant specific type III PKSs and is involved in resveratrol synthesis. This study aimed to assess the effects of heterologous overexpression of the resveratrol synthase (PcPKS5) gene on Huping jujube (Ziziphus jujuba Mill.)(More)
