Cover for Differential transcriptome profiling for identification of cellulose degrading enzymes in <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Ctenolepisma longicaudata</i>.

This chapter presents the results of RNA-sequencing in silverfish (Ctenolepisma longicaudata) to identify cellulase genes and their differential expression in the foregut. Transcriptomes from insects fed on 4 diets consisting of different cellulosic substrates were compared to characterize the...

Cover for Using RNA-seq to help identify functions in unknown organs.

This chapter focuses on discovering the function of midgut in Phasmatodea. The appendices of the Phasmatodea midgut are not simply extra excretory organs. They are involved in multiple drug resistance, eliminating foreign compounds from the hemolymph through an array of ABC transporters and...

Cover for Advances in RNA suppression of the Asian citrus psyllid vector and bacteria (huanglongbing pathosystem).

The devastation to the US citrus industries from huanglongbing (HLB or citrus greening disease, caused by 'Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus') is spread during feeding by the Asian citrus psyllid (ACP) Diaphorina citri. Innovative echnologies, such as RNA suppression by RNAi, morpholino oligos, or...

Cover for Nanonutrient from fungal protein: future prospects on crop production.

This chapter presents an interesting example of an innovation that nanotechnology could offer in the form of synthesis of nanonutrients by certain fungal species. Although more work is needed to optimize the process in relation to the control of particle characteristics (such as size, dispersity...

Cover for Plant responses to chilling temperatures.

Plants are submitted to a chilling stress when exposed to low, non-freezing temperatures. Some are able to cope with this stress and acquire chilling tolerance; in some species, the exposure to this stress will even trigger developmental responses. Other (chilling-sensitive) species will not be...

Cover for Plant gene silencing: mechanisms and applications.

This book describes both the theory of gene silencing and also the application. The first five chapters discuss different aspects of the gene silencing mechanism. Since the silencing pathways are particularly diverse in plants, a whole chapter is dedicated to describe these (chapter 1). It is a...

Cover for Diversity of RNA silencing pathways in plants.

This chapter is dedicated to describe the diversity of RNA silencing pathways in plants. Regulatory mechanisms have been put in place to control invading nucleic acids from endogenous (mainly transposons) or exogenous (mainly viruses) origins. Silencing is mediated by siRNAs, and can occur at...

Cover for Induction and suppression of silencing by plant viruses.

It is a generally accepted view that gene silencing has evolved in plants as a defence mechanism against viruses, therefore this chapter 2 discusses the 'arms race' between plants and viruses, how viruses trigger silencing and also evolved proteins that can suppress it. Evidence of more general...

Cover for Gene silencing in fungi: a diversity of pathways and functions.

Although RNAi has been described in many fungal species, most of the knowledge on sRNA and RNAi pathways in fungi is centred in two reference organisms: the ascomycete Neurospora crassa and the opportunistic human pathogen Mucor circinelloides, a basal fungus belonging to the subphylum...

Cover for Artificial small RNA-based strategies for effective and specific gene silencing in plants.

In plants, small RNAs (sRNAs) function in diverse RNA silencing pathways to regulate development, control genome integrity and protect against viruses. This chapter discusses various strategies to produce small artificial RNAs. Details of the biogenesis, action and application of both classes of...
