Functionalized microchannels as xylem-mimicking environments: quantifying X. fastidiosa cell adhesion.
The viability of functionalized microchannels to mimic xylem vessels is shown and corroborate the important role of chemical environments, and particularly XadA1 adhesin, for early stages of X. fastidiosa biofilm formation as well as adhesivity modulation along the pathogen life cycle. Expand
Genetic Relationships Among Physiological Processes, Phenology, and Grain Yield Offer an Insight Into the Development of New Cultivars in Soybean (Glycine max L. Merr)
Insight is brought into a group of traits involving A, iWUE, and RL to be prioritized during the breeding process for high-yielding cultivars and the genetic correlation between traits evaluated in different environments is determined. Expand
The Use of Thermal Time to Describe and Predict the Growth and Nutritive Value of Lolium perenne L. and Bromus valdivianus Phil
The thermal time, expressed in accumulated growing degree-days (AGDD), was used as a predictor to describe and simulate the independent growth of two pasture crops, Lolium perenne L. and BromusExpand
Arabidopsis leaf hydraulic conductance is regulated by xylem-sap pH, controlled, in turn, by a P-type H+-ATPase of vascular bundle sheath cells
It is demonstrated that AHA2 is necessary for xylem-sap acidification, and in turn, for elevating Kleaf, as well as the effect of pH on the water osmotic permeability of isolated BSCs protoplasts. Expand
Plant Cell Walls Tackling Climate Change: Biotechnological Strategies to Improve Crop Adaptations and Photosynthesis in Response to Global Warming
Specific cases in crops of interest carrying cell wall modifications that enhance tolerance to climate change-related stresses are discussed; from cereals such as rice, wheat, barley, or maize to dicots of interest such as brassica oilseed, cotton, soybean, tomato, or potato. Expand
Phenotypic Variation and Genetic Architecture for Photosynthesis and Water Use Efficiency in Soybean (Glycine max L. Merr)
Genome-wide association analysis revealed quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for these physiological traits and cross-validation studies indicated high predictive ability for the implementation of genomic prediction as a viable strategy to improve physiological efficiency while reducing field phenotyping.

Photosynthetic metabolism during phosphate limitation in a legume from the Mediterranean-type Fynbos ecosystem.
Results show that during short-term P-stress, Aspalathus linearis can maintain its photosynthetic rates by altering the structural and functional components of the light reactions. Expand
Stiffness signatures along early stages of Xylella fastidiosa biofilm formation.
Both the oscillatory movement of vertically attached single cells, as well as the transport of cell clusters within the biofilm matrix can be explained by the presence of softer materials at the cell pole and EPS matrix, adding to a more detailed understanding of mechanisms used by cells to migrate among vessels in plant xylem.
