The Flavr Savr Tomato, an Early Example of RNAi Technology
TLDR
It is found polygalacturonase suppression correlates with accumulation of '21-nt small interfering RNAs, the hallmark of an RNA interference-mediated suppression mechanism. Expand
BcpLH organizes a specific subset of microRNAs to form a leafy head in Chinese cabbage (Brassica rapa ssp. pekinensis)
TLDR
It is suggested that BcpLH controls a specific subset of miRNAs in Chinese cabbage and coordinates the direction, extent, and timing of leaf curvature during head formation in Brassica rapa. Expand
Constitutional and Induced Accumulation of Callose and Phenol Compounds as Elements of Systemic Resistance in Winter Wheat Sprouts
TLDR
Considerable differences were demonstrated in the constitutional and induced accumulation of phytoimmunity substances by the sprouts of the Myronivska 808 and Renan cultivars, which cause specific features of their resistance to pathogenic microorganisms. Expand
RNA interference: What and why?
TLDR
RNA interference is a highly evolutionarily conserved cellular mechanism of gene regulation in which the own sequences of a gene turn it off and by it the unwanted or harmful genes get turned/ switched off or silenced. Expand

AVANCES EN BIOTECNOLOGÍA DE ALIMENTOS TRENDS IN FOOD BIOTECHNOLOGY
TLDR
Every day more genomes of animals, plants or microorganisms that are common components of the authors' diet or pathogens responsible for food poisoning, like Escherichia coli, are published, making it possible to devise strategies for improvement using classical and genetic engineering techniques, demarcate defence mechanisms to combat pathogenicity, and define new physiological functions. Expand
Avances en biotecnología de alimentos
TLDR
Every day more genomes of animals, plants or microorganisms that are common components of the authors' diet like rice, bread yeast, the probiotic bacterium Bifidobacterium bifidum or pathogens responsible for food poisoning, like Escherichia coli, are published. Expand
Detecção de alterações no proteoma de plantas geneticamente modificadas oriundas de interações sinérgicas e antagonistas da integração e expressão de transgenes
TLDR
Two different new methodological models were used to characterize potential adverse effects of GMOs at the molecular level, and showed that transgene constructs do not function in a linear additive fashion, but instead alter endogenous proteome profile. Expand
Small RNA profiles from virus-infected fresh market vegetables.
TLDR
The results provide evidence for the safe use by humans and animals of genetically engineered crops using RNA-based suppression technologies, especially vegetable crops with virus resistance conferred by expression of siRNAs or miRNAs derived from viral sequences. Expand
Sustainable Aquaculture Using Temporal RNA Interference in Crustaceans : The Case of the Insulin-like Androgenic Gland Hormone and Prawn Monosex Culture
Due to over-fishing and deterioration of wild catch, the ever-growing crustacean market is increasingly relying on aquaculture, driving the need for better management techniques. Since most culturedExpand

An efficient and reliable method for determining the number of transgenes inserted into transgenic plants
TLDR
A simple and reliable method is described for determining the number of transgenes inserted into transgenic plants and the use of the method to analyze other plants transformed with endogenous plant gene coding regions or promoters is discussed. Expand
Encyclopedia of Plant and Crop Science
TLDR
The major Crops o Transgenic Plants: Uses and Precautions o Weeds and Weed Control and Sustainable Agriculture are presented. Expand
High-efficiency silencing of a β-glucuronidase gene in rice is correlated with repetitive transgene structure but is independent of DNA methylation
TLDR
Results suggest that both sense- and antisense-mediated gene suppression share a similar molecular basis, that unpolyadenylated RNA plays an important role in PTGS, and that methylation is not essential for PTGS. Expand
T-DNA is organized predominantly in inverted repeat structures in plants transformed with Agrobacterium tumefaciens C58 derivatives
TLDR
The detailed structural organization of DNA sequences transferred to the plant genome via Agrobacterium tumefaciens has been determined in 11 transgenic tomato plants that carry the transferred DNA at a single genetic locus, found to carry multiple copies of T-DNA arranged in inverted repeat structures. Expand
A new opaque variant of maize by a single dominant RNA-interference-inducing transgene.
TLDR
It is found that maize transformed with RNA interference constructs derived from a 22-kD zein gene could produce a dominant opaque phenotype, and it appears that small interfering RNAs not only may play an important regulatory role during plant development, but also are effective genetic tools for dissecting the function of gene families. Expand
Inverted repeat of a heterologous 3'-untranslated region for high-efficiency, high-throughput gene silencing.
TLDR
The method has the advantage of ease and rapidity in preparation of the constructs, since a gene of interest can be inserted into a binary vector already containing the promoter and the inverted nos domain in a single-cloning step, and does not require any knowledge of the DNA sequence. Expand
Application of gene silencing in plants.
TLDR
Two RNA-mediated epigenetic processes, RNA- directed RNA degradation and RNA-directed DNA methylation, are revealed, which have provided new avenues for developing high-efficiency, high-throughput technology for gene suppression in plants. Expand
The influence of inverted repeats on the production of small antisense RNAs involved in gene silencing
Abstract. Gene silencing by an ACO1 [1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate (ACC) oxidase 1] sense transgene in tomato plants was correlated with the production of small antisense RNAs (asRNAs) of 21–28Expand
Distinct features of post-transcriptional gene silencing by antisense transgenes in single copy and inverted T-DNA repeat loci.
TLDR
Analysis of petunia transformants revealed that the transformants can be divided in two classes: the first class contains a single copy T-DNA of which the as-Chs gene is transcribed, although several-fold lower than the endogenous Chs genes, and it is speculated that silencing is induced by double-stranded RNA.
