Cover for Biosafety evaluation: a necessary process ensuring the equitable beneficial effects of PGPR.

Plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) applied as biofertilizers and biological control agents have been used broadly both in natural and agricultural soils. Although there are directly positive effects of bio-inoculants, it must be acknowledged that the large-scale application of PGPR in the...

Cover for Effects of drought stress on maize kernel set.

Drought stress reduces the resources available to support normal ear establishment and kernel development in maize. These resources include both carbon and nitrogen assimilates, as well as the water and minerals necessary to support cell division and expansion of the ear. The integrated response of ...

Cover for Maize seed storage proteins.

Maize kernels contain several types of storage proteins. By far, the most abundant are prolamins, zeins, a unique storage protein found only in cereals. Because of their abundance, zeins have a profound influence on human and livestock nutrition. These proteins also appear to influence the...

Cover for Maize kernel oil content.

Although maize is a staple food crop that contributes a large percentage of calories to human diets in a few countries, its major use worldwide is for animal feed. One approach to improve the metabolizable energy of maize for feed applications involves increasing kernel oil content, because oil has ...

Cover for Central metabolism and its spatial heterogeneity in maize endosperm.

This chapter addresses bioenergetic considerations of the metabolic processes in maize kernels by which sugars are converted to starch, protein, and other metabolites. Central metabolism in this context is divided into modules: (i) hexose and sucrose supply; (ii) hexose phosphorylation; (iii) ATP...

Cover for Aneuploidy and ploidy in the endosperm: dosage, imprinting, and maternal effects on development.

For nearly 100 years, it has been recognized that changes in the dosage of parts of plant genomes (aneuploidy) impact their development, stature, and vigour, even more than changes in copies of the entire genome (polyploidy). The first studies of aneuploidy and polyploidy, using Datura stramonium,...
