Abstract

Vegetative insecticidal proteins (Vips) represent the second generation of insecticidal trans-genes that will complement the Bacillus thuringiensis delta endotoxins in future. A new vip3A gene was cloned from the promising native isolate, B. thuringiensis JK37 obtained from the soils of maize...

Abstract

Strigolactones (SLs) play an important role in controlling root growth, shoot branching, and plant-symbionts interaction. Despite the importance, the components of SL biosynthesis and signaling have not been unequivocally explored in soybean. Here we identified the putative components of SL...

Abstract

Cucumber green mottle mosaic virus (CGMMV) is one of the most devastating viruses infecting members of the family Cucurbitaceae. The assembly initiation site of CGMMV is located in the coding region of the coat protein, which is not only involved in virion assembly but is also a key factor...

CAB ReviewFull Text

Cotton is an important fibre crop of global and economic significance. For effective control of bollworms, transgenic Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) cotton was introduced on a commercial scale in 1996, with an aim to reduce pesticide consumption. Presently, transgenic cotton is grown on 24 million...

CAB ReviewFull Text

Western corn rootworm (Diabrotica virgifera virgifera LeConte) and northern corn rootworm (Diabrotica barberi (Smith and Lawrence)) are major pests of maize in the USA. These pests have been managed with a variety of tactics over the last century. Both Diabrotica spp. have adapted to crop rotation...

AbstractFull Text

Objective: The purpose of our research was to obtain the full length of the leaf-specific promoter and analyze its expression characteristics, which can provide an important cis-acting element for transgenetic breeding of upland cotton. Method: A leaf-specific expression gene of high activity was...
