Abstract

In the 1950s, the idea of a single harmonized list of food additives for the European Union arose. Already in 1962, the E-classification system, a robust food safety system intended to protect consumers from possible food-related risks, was introduced. Initially, it was restricted to colorants, but ...

Abstract

African horse sickness is a severe, often fatal, arboviral disease of equids. The control of African horse sickness virus (AHSV) in endemic countries is based currently on the use of live attenuated vaccines despite some biosafety concerns derived from its biological properties. Thus, experimental...

Abstract

Long-chain acyl-CoA synthetases (LACSs) are members of the acyl-activating enzyme superfamily that have important roles in lipid synthesis and storage, fatty acid catabolism, vectorial acylation, and synthesis of cutin and wax. Here, 11 apple MdLACS genes were identified based on the Malus × ...

Abstract

Grafting is a common technique used to impart desirable traits to a plant's scion. Herbicide resistant rootstocks have the potential to confer non-genetically modified (non-GM) scions with herbicide tolerance while mitigating some societal concerns regarding GM crops and food. We examined the...

Abstract

We investigate consumer demand for genetically modified (GM) rice in urban China, using a relatively large survey of urban consumers in 2013 and the contingent valuation method. Our results show that respondents discount their WTP for first, second and third generation of GM rice by 31%, 34% and...

Abstract

Since ancient times, opium poppy (Papaver somniferum L.) is known for its medicinal properties, related to its secondary metabolite content. Its most important secondary metabolites, called benzylisoquinoline alkaloids (BIAs), are still essential in pharmaceutical field. Few of them, like morphine, ...

Abstract

Saline-alkali soil is an arable land resource on which transgenic Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) cotton has been planted on a large scale in accordance with food security strategies. There are, however, concerns about the insecticidal effects of Bt cotton on target insect pests. In this study, a Bt...

Abstract

Genetically modified organisms have been at the centre of a major public controversy, involving different interests and actors. While much attention has been devoted to consumer views on genetically modified food, there have been few attempts to understand the perceptions of genetically modified...
