Abstract

Two bioactive omega-3, long-chain, fatty acids (EPA and DHA), found in algal and fish oils, can now be produced in genetically engineered (GE) terrestrial oilseed crops. These fatty acids are involved in key physiological functions in invertebrates and vertebrates. They are known to be synthesized...

Abstract

Maize MON 87403 was developed to increase ear biomass at early reproductive phase through the expression of a modified AtHB17 gene from Arabidopsis thaliana, encoding a plant transcription factor of the HD-Zip II family. The molecular characterisation data and bioinformatic analyses did not...

Abstract

A near-isogenic line of melon (NIL) SC10-2 with differential textural traits was compared with a control 'Piel de Sapo' (PS) at three stages of commercial maturity (G1, G2, G3). Flesh samples were taken and the aroma volatiles were extracted by solid phase microextraction and further analyzed by...

Abstract

Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) as a gasotransmitter and signal molecule plays prominent roles in plant response to biotic and abiotic stresses. Hypotaurine (HT), another sulfur compound, can be used in food and proposed to reduce sulfide toxicity in deep-sea invertebrates' cells. The effects of H2S and HT...

Abstract

CRISPR/Cas9 technology is rapidly spreading as genome editing system in crop breeding. The efficacy of CRISPR/Cas9 in tomato was tested on Psy1 and CrtR-b2, two key genes of carotenoid biosynthesis. Carotenoids are plant secondary metabolites that must be present in the diet of higher animals...
