Grapevine (Vitis vinifera L., Vitaceae) belongs to the genus Vitis, and is characterized as a vine due to the presence of tendrils, which are located opposite to leaves. Tendrils are thigmo-responsive organs, able to carry out delicate mechanosensory responses upon touch and related stimuli. These organs are an adaptation of the plant to climb with the help of support to higher places and finally remain at a position with favorable light quality. In previous studies on Bryonia dioica…

The study of hormonal metabolism of Trincadeira and Syrah cultivars indicates new roles of salicylic acid, jasmonates, ABA and IAA during grape ripening and upon infection with Botrytis cinerea

The involvement of SA and IAA in defense against necrotrophic pathogens is indicated and insights into possible strategies for conventional breeding and/or gene editing aiming at improving grape quality and grape resistance against Botrytis cinerea are gained.

Morphological plasticity in the kelp Nereocystis luetkeana (Phaeophyceae) is sensitive to the magnitude, direction, and location of mechanical loading

It was found that applying a gradient of tensile force caused blades to grow progressively longer, narrower, less ruffled, and heavier in a linear fashion, suggesting that Nereocystis is equally well adapted for all conditions within its hydrodynamic niche.

The effects of GABA in plants

The dual function of GABA as a metabolite and as a component of signaling pathways is a combination enabling plants to cope with different conditions, and may offer the potential to improve the overall vigor of plants.

Anatomical and physical properties of tendril perversion of Coccinia grandis (L.) Voigt

The structure of biomaterial is interest in biomimetic and biomechanics research. The physical properties, mechanical, characteristic of twisting and bending of plant tendrils are also



Methyljasmonate and α-linolenic acid are potent inducers of tendril coiling

Methyljasmonate could be one of the endogenous chemical signals produced in mechanically stimulated parts of a tendril and act as a diffusible gaseous mediator spreading through the intracellular spaces to trigger free coiling of tendrils.

Interaktionen von Auxin und Äthylen bei der thigmotropen Bewegung der Ranken von Cucumis sativus

SummaryCoiling of intact or excised cucumber (Cucumis sativus) tendrils can be induced by IAA or ethylene. The velocity of coiling in different regions of the tendrils correlates with the capacity

An update on abscisic acid signaling in plants and more...

Undoubtedly, the most astonishing revelation is that ABA is not restricted to plants and mosses, but overwhelming evidence now indicates that it also exists in metazoans ranging from the most primitive to the most advance on the evolution scale (sponges to humans).

Flowering in Vitis: Conversion of tendrils into inflorescences and bunches of grapes

Inflorescences and fruits with viable seeds were produced in place of tendrils in plants of Vitis vinifera L. cv. “Muscat of Alexandria” and in a staminate hybrid grapevine (Vitis vinifera x V.

Jasmonates: an update on biosynthesis, signal transduction and action in plant stress response, growth and development.

This review summarizes biosynthesis and signal transduction of jasmonates with emphasis on new findings in relation to enzymes, their crystal structure, new compounds detected in the oxylipin andJasmonate families, and newly found functions.

The Arabidopsis her1 mutant implicates GABA in E-2-hexenal responsiveness.

A role for GABA in mediating E-2-hexenal responses to C6-volatiles is proposed, as well as a mutation that encodes a gamma-amino butyric acid transaminase that degrades GABA, which accumulates high GABA levels in all their organs.

CML42-Mediated Calcium Signaling Coordinates Responses to Spodoptera Herbivory and Abiotic Stresses in Arabidopsis1[W][OA]

The results indicate that CML42 acts as a crucial signaling component connecting Ca2+ and JA signaling, and might serve as a Ca2- sensor having multiple functions in insect herbivory defense and abiotic stress responses.
