LINKING GENES AND PHYSIOLOGY UTILIZING GENOMICS AND TRANSCRIPTOMICS APPROACHES IN SWEET CHERRY (PRUNUS AVIUM)
Sweet cherry is an important horticultural crop in Washington. Sweet cherry trees are grown as composite plants where the scion is grafted onto a rootstock. Rootstock genotype influences tree yield potential (among other ...
MONOLIGNOL AND LIGNAN BIOSYNTHETIC STUDIES: FROM REACTION MECHANISMS TO NEXT GENERATION SEQUENCING
Three objectives were studied: determination of the biochemical mechanisms of an
UNDERSTANDING AND CHARACTERIZING THE GENES ASSOCIATED WITH RPG1-MEDIATED RESISTANCE PATHWAY AGAINST STEM RUST
Barley stem rust resistance gene, Rpg1 (Reaction to Puccinia graminis 1), confers durable resistance to barley cultivars against stem rust caused by many races of Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici. The current study was ...
EFFECTS OF GENOTYPE, FERTILIZER, AND MYCORRHIZAL FUNGI ON PHOSPHORUS USE EFFICIENCY OF ORGANIC AND CONVENTIONAL SPRING WHEAT
Recent attention to the increasing environmental and monetary costs of mining dwindling phosphorus (P) reserves have lead to renewed efforts to design agricultural systems that use P more efficiently. The objective of these ...
Understanding the Physiological Significance of Ureide Transport Processes in Soybean (
The ureides allantoin and allantoic acid are the major long-distance forms of nitrogen (N) in nodulated tropical legumes like French bean (
Identifying Regulatory Components of Phytosterol Biosynthesis in the Genomics Era
The biosynthesis of sterol molecules is both ubiquitous and essential in the eukaryotic lineage. Despite our advanced knowledge of the structural genes and enzymes involved in phytosterol biosynthesis in Arabidopsis thaliana, ...
Integrative approaches for understanding metabolism in plant specialized cell types
Plants contain specialized tissues/cell types that play important roles in the synthesis of many natural products. Investigation at cell-specific resolution is necessary for understanding the functional specialization of ...
Investigating Plant One-carbon Metabolism Through Engineering and Enzyme Characterization
One-carbon (C1) metabolism is essential to all organisms. In plants, C1 units are required for the synthesis of proteins, nucleic acids, pantothenate, and many methylated molecules. Due to the low abundance and lability ...
GENETIC AND FUNCTIONAL CHARACTERIZATION OF CALCIUM/CALMODULIN/ATSR1-MEDIATED SIGNAL PATHWAY IN PLANT DEFENSE RESPONSE
Calcium (Ca2+) is accepted as a predominant second messenger in plant cells. Cytosolic and nuclear free Ca2+ concentration in plant cells changes rapidly and dynamically in response to various endogenous or environmental ...
