Relationship between salt tolerance and photosynthetic machinery performance in citrus
In citrus, salt stress has been related to the build up of chloride ions in plant tissues that affect photosynthesis, growth and yield. We investigated the effects of salt stress on the stability of the photosynthetic ...
Plant phenotype demarcation using nontargeted LC-MS and GC-MS metabolite profiling
(American Chemical Society, 2009)
The characterization of the metabolome is a critical aspect in basic research and plant breeding. In this work, the putative application of metabolomics for phenotyping closely related genotypes has been tested. Crude ...
La metabolómica como herramienta para la evaluación fisiológica y nutricional en citricultura
(Ediciones y Promociones LAV, 2014)
La metabolómica tiene como objetivo el análisis de todos los metabolitos de bajo peso molecular presentes en un organismo, tejido o tipo celular concreto en un estadio de desarrollo dado y bajo unas condiciones ambientales ...
Revisión: Interacciones hormonales en la respuesta frente al estrés abiótico
(Sociedad Española de Fisiología Vegetal, 2014-01)
Los organismos sésiles como las plantas no pueden escapar de las condiciones adversas que frecuentemente afectan su crecimiento y desarrollo. Las plantas disparan diferentes mecanismos para ajustarse a las condiciones de ...
A root specific induction of carotenoid biosynthesis contributes to ABA production upon salt stress in arabidopsis
(Carl Ng, University College Dublin, Ireland, 2014)
Abscisic acid (ABA) is a hormone that plays a vital role in mediating abiotic stress responses in plants. Salt exposure induces the synthesis of ABA through the cleavage of carotenoid precursors (xanthophylls), which are ...
Non-targeted metabolite profiling of citrus juices as a tool for variety discrimination and metabolite flow analysis
(BioMed Central, 2015-02-05)
Background Genetic diversity of citrus includes intrageneric hybrids, cultivars arising from cross-pollination and/or somatic mutations with particular biochemical compounds such as sugar, acids and secondary metabolite ...
The transcription factor AREB1 regulates primary metabolic pathways in tomato fruits
(Oxford Universty Press, 2014-03)
Tomato fruit development is regulated both by the action of plant hormones and by tight genetic control. Recent studies suggest that abscisic acid (ABA) signalling may affect different aspects of fruit maturation. Previously, ...
Effect of cadmium and calcium treatments on phytochelatin and glutathione levels in citrus plants
Industry residues, phosphate fertilisers and wastewater as a source of irrigation have considerably increased levels of heavy metals in the soil, mainly cadmium (Cd2+). To test the effects of a calcium (Ca2+) treatment on ...
Jasmonic acid transient accumulation is needed for abscisic acid increase in citrus roots under drought stress conditions
Phytohormones are central players in sensing and signaling numerous environmental conditions like drought stress. In this work, an experimental system based on severe drought was established and hormone profiling together ...
Reciprocal responses in the interaction between arabidopsis and the cell-content-feeding chelicerate herbivore spider mite
(American Society of Plant Biologists, 2014)
Most molecular-genetic studies of plant defense responses to arthropod herbivores have focused on insects. However, plant-feeding mites are also pests of diverse plants, and mites induce different patterns of damage to ...
