Abstract

Lignin, a natural macromolecular compound, plays an important role in the texture and taste of fruit. Hard end is a physiological disorder of pear fruit, in which the level of lignification in fruit tissues is dramatically elevated. Cinnamyl alcohol dehydrogenase and expansin genes (PpCAD2 and...

Abstract

Genetically modified organisms (GMO) are increasingly gaining acceptance, which has led to an increasing demand for high-throughput methods for their detection. This study describes development of a high-throughput and low-cost multiplex tandem PCR (MT-PCR) assay for the screening of transgenic...

Abstract

Novel foods derived from genome-editing techniques call for an updated risk analysis of the use of plant produced by genome editing, especially in China. As a developing country with the largest population and limited arable land, China has invested intensively in genetically modified (GM) crops to...

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...

CAB ReviewFull Text

Plants are being engineered for enhanced ethanol production; however, challenges remain in meeting the demand for bioenergy that is expected to double by 2030. Therefore, targeting carbon accumulation in the form of energy-dense oils in nonseed biomass is considered a superior alternative for...

AbstractFull Text

Aim: In our previous studies, the activities of total esterases were found to be significantly increased in the chlorpyrifos, imidacloprid and deltamethrin resistant strains of the small brown planthopper, Laodelphax striatellus. The aim of this study is to identify the carboxylesterase gene...
