Assessment of potential for biological control of botrytis cinerea by an indigenous trichoderma harzianum isolate with a novel detached leaf-droplet inoculation bioassay and correlated increase in phytoalexin production
(Global Science Books, 2008)
A simple detached leaf-droplet inoculation bioassay was devised in order to investigate the potential for biological control of Botrytis cinerea by indigenous Trichoderma harzianum isolates. Following preliminary in vitro ...
NO loading: Efficiency assessment of five commonly used application methods of sodium nitroprusside in Medicago truncatula plants
Nitric oxide (NO) is a bioactive, diffusible molecule involved in a multitude of physiological and developmental processes in plants, which has been reported to display both antioxidant and pro-oxidant properties in plants. ...
Never say dye: New roles for an old fluorochrome
(Landes Bioscience, 2012)
Recent years have seen a remarkable increase in the number of publications dealing with the application of epifluorescence microscopy in cell biology. This can be widely attributed to the development of state-of-the-art ...
Incidence of viruses infecting spinach in Greece, highlighting the importance of weeds as reservoir hosts
(Edizioni ETS Pisa, 2011)
The aim of this survey was to identify viruses infecting spinach (Spinacia oleracea L.) in the most important spinach-producing areas in Greece. A total of 1074 spinach samples were collected from eleven districts belonging ...
Involvement of AsA/DHA and GSH/GSSG Ratios in Gene and Protein Expression and in the Activation of Defence Mechanisms Under Abiotic Stress Conditions
In a persistently changing environment there are many adverse abiotic stress conditions such as cold, heat, drought, salinity, heavy metal toxicity and oxygen deprivation, which remarkably influence plant growth and crop ...
Altered ascorbate redox state in tobacco plants results in delayed dark induced senescence in detached leaves
Ascorbate oxidase (AO) is an apoplastic enzyme that uses oxygen to catalyze the oxidation of ascorbate (AA) to dehydroascorbate (DHA) via the unstable radical monodehydroascorbate (MDHA). Here, we report that transgenic ...
