Camelina sativa is an old world crop newly introduced to the semi-arid regions of the Southwestern US. Recently, Camelina gained attention as a biofuel feedstock crop due to its relatively high oil content, polyunsaturated fatty acids, very short growing season with fairly good adaption to marginal lands, and low input agricultural systems. To expand Camelina growing zones into more arid regions, it is important to develop new drought resistant cultivars that can grow under water-limited… Expand
Characterization of leaf cuticular wax classes and constituents in a spring Camelina sativa diversity panel
TLDR
Results suggest that modifying specific wax constituents could increase the wax loads, which in turn could enhance cuticle composition and properties, and enable the development of molecular markers for molecular breeding programs aimed at increasing drought tolerance of Camelina. Expand

TLDR
Striking differences are found between the lipid polyester monomer compositions of aerial tissues of C. sativa and that of its close relatives Arabidopsis thaliana and Brassica napus. Expand

TLDR
Striking differences are found between the lipid polyester monomer compositions of aerial tissues of C. sativa and that of its close relatives Arabidopsis thaliana and Brassica napus. Expand
Quantification of leaf wax and cutin monomer composition in Pima (Gossypium barbadense L.) and upland (G. hirsutum L.) cotton
Abstract Climatological drought is a historic problem that limits agricultural production worldwide. Reducing transpirational water loss can conserve soil moisture and confer drought tolerance toExpand
Genome-wide association study (GWAS) of leaf cuticular wax components in Camelina sativa identifies genetic loci related to intracellular wax transport
TLDR
These loci could potentially serve as candidates for the genetic control involved in intracellular wax transport that might directly or indirectly facilitate leaf wax accumulation in C. sativa and can be used in future marker-assisted selection (MAS) to breed for the cultivars with high wax content to improve drought tolerance.

Antioxidant and antifungal activity of carnauba wax powder extracts
Abstract Carnauba wax is a commercially valuable product derived from epicuticular wax powder (CWP) from the leaves of Copernicia prunifera (Arecaceae), a palm tree native to northeastern Brazil. CWPExpand
Regulation of cuticular wax biosynthesis in plants under abiotic stress
Cuticular waxes are the covering of the outer layer of the plant, consist of hydrocarbon appears like whitish film or bloom in plant organs. They play a vital role like a safeguard from differentExpand
Analysis of natural wax from Nelumbo nucifera leaves by using polar and non-polar organic solvents
Abstract Nelumbo nucifera (lotus) is a unique aquatic plant. Its leaves are covered with superhydrophobic wax layer which protects it from the environmental wearing. In this study, the extractionExpand
Effects of the leaf functional traits of coniferous and broadleaved trees in subtropical monsoon regions on PM2.5 dry deposition velocities.
TLDR
The correlation analysis revealed that SFE, SR, LAs, and W/L were the key factors that affected the Vd of all the tested species, whereas LAs and SLA had the strongest effect on that of coniferous trees. Expand

Advances in the understanding of cuticular waxes in Arabidopsis thaliana and crop species
TLDR
Recent advances in the understanding of the biological functions of genes involved in cuticular wax biosynthesis, transport, and regulation of wax deposition from Arabidopsis and crop species are discussed, information on cuticular Wax amounts and composition in various organs of nine representative plant species are provided, and the important issues that need to be investigated are suggested.

Cuticle lipids on heteromorphic leaves of Populus euphratica Oliv. growing in riparian habitats differing in available soil moisture.
TLDR
The alkane-synthesis-associated ECERIFERUM1 (CER1), as well as ABC transporter- and elongase-associated genes, were expressed at much higher levels at the drier than wetter sites, indicating their potential function in elevating leaf cuticle lipids in the dry site conditions. Expand
Leaf cuticular waxes and physiological parameters in alfalfa leaves as influenced by drought
TLDR
An increase in alkane content might be more important in improving drought tolerance of alfalfa under water deficit, which might be used as an index for selecting and breeding drought resistant cultivars of al falfa. Expand
Overexpression of Arabidopsis MYB96 confers drought resistance in Camelina sativa via cuticular wax accumulation
TLDR
Results indicate that MYB96-mediated transcriptional regulation of wax biosynthetic genes is an approach applicable to generating drought-resistant transgenic crops. Expand
Changes in leaf cuticular waxes of sesame (Sesamum indicum L.) plants exposed to water deficit.
TLDR
Drought treatments caused a large decrease in seed yield per plant, but did not affect the mean weight of individual seeds, showing that sesame responds to post-flowering drought by reducing seed numbers, but not seed size. Expand

TLDR
The resources described here will be valuable for future studies of the physiological function of fruit cuticle, for the identification of genes and QTLs associated with fruit cuticles synthesis in pepper fruit, and as a starting point for breeding improved fruit quality in pepper. Expand
Oilseed Camelina (Camelina sativa L Crantz): Production Systems, Prospects and Challenges in the USA Great Plains

Research efforts into perfecting alternative uses for camelina oil and meal such as using camelina as a drop-in product for adhesives, films, coatings, packing materials and plastics will expand the market beyond biodiesel. Expand
Leaf cuticular lipids on the Shandong and Yukon ecotypes of saltwater cress, Eutrema salsugineum, and their response to water deficiency and impact on cuticle permeability.
TLDR
With or without stress, more abundant cuticle lipids were generally associated with lower water loss rates, lower chlorophyll efflux rates and an extended time before water deficit-induced wilting, and in response to water deficit, Shandong showed elevated transcription of genes encoding elongase subunits, consistent with the higher stress induction of acids byShandong.
