Genes involved in microbe-plant interactions by D. P. S Verma( Book )

11 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interdependence between species is a law of nature. The degree of this interdependence is vividly evident in the plant-microbial world. Indeed, there is no axenic plant in nature and one finds various forms of interac­ tions between these two kingdoms ranging from completely innocuous to obligate parasitic. Most of these interactions are poorly understood at the molecular and physiological levels. Only those few cases for which a molecular picture is emerging are discussed in this volume. With the advent of recombinant DNA technology and the realization that some of these interactions are very beneficial to the host plant, a spate of activity to understand and manipulate these processes is occurring. Microbes interact with plants for nutrition. In spite of the large number of plant-microbe interactions, those microbes that cause harm to the plants (i. e. , cause disease) are very few. It is thus obvious that plants have evolved various defense mechanisms to deal with the microbial world. The mecha­ nisms for protection are highly diverse and poorly understood. Some pathogens have developed very sophisticated mechanisms to parasitize plants, an excellent example for this being crown gall caused by a soil bac­ terium, Agrobacterium tumefaciens. A remarkable ingenuity is exhibited by this bacterium to manipulate its host to provide nitrogenous compounds which only this bacterium can catabolize. This is carried out by a direct gene transfer mechanism from bacteria to plants
Plant virus-host interaction : molecular approaches and viral evolution by R. K Gaur( )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Plant Virus-Host Interaction contains cutting-edge research in plant molecular virology, including pathogenic viroids and transport by insect vectors, interference with transmission to control viruses, and synergism, with pivotal coverage of RNA silencing and the counter-defensive strategies used by viruses to overcome the silencing response in plants. With a clear focus on plant virus evolution, including quantitative and population genetics, Plant Virus-Host Interaction provides insights on the major factors favoring disease emergence, such as genetic change in pathology

Biotechnology of food crops in developing countries by Thomas Hohn( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tropical crops such as cowpea, yam, plantain, and cassava are heavily underresearched but, in addition to rice, maize, wheat, and potato, are important as primary or secondary food staples in the developing countries. The modern tools of molecular and cellular technology offer the opportunity not only to make substantial gains in knowledge of these crops, but also they overcome some of the obstacles which presently restrain both the genetic improvement and the productivity of these crops in tropical farming systems. Increased nutritional value of these crops, reduced post-harvest perishability, and lower costs of production are some of the advantages taken from biotechnology. Engineered genetic resistance would also allow to drastically reduce employment of pesticides, which at present are expensive or unavailable for farmers in developing countries and may create environmental and health hazards. In this book experts present opportunities to improve the efficiency of plant breeding programs also taking into account the ethical and sociopolitical aspects of these technologies
Post-transcriptional control of gene expression in plants by Witold Filipowicz( )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A recent volume of this series ( Signals and Signal Transduction Pathways in Plants (K. Palme, ed.) Plant Molecular Biology <strong>26</strong>, 1237-1679) described the relay races by which signals are transported in plants from the sites of stimuli to the gene expression machinery of the cell. Part of this machinery, the transcription apparatus, has been well studied in the last two decades, and many important mechanisms controlling gene expression at the transcriptional level have been elucidated. However, control of gene expression is by no means complete once the RNA has been produced. Important regulatory devices determine the maturation and usage of mRNA and the fate of its translation product. Post-transcriptional regulation is especially important for generating a fast response to environmental and intracellular signals. This book summarizes recent progress in the area of post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression in plants. 18 chapters of the book address problems of RNA processing and stability, regulation of translation, protein folding and degradation, as well as intracellular and cell-to-cell transport of proteins and nucleic acids. Several chapters are devoted to the processes taking place in plant organelles

Temporal and spatial regulation of plant genes by D. P. S Verma( )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First attempts to isolate plant genes were for those genes that are abun­ dantly expressed in a particular plant organ at a specific stage of devel­ opment. However, many important gene products are produced in a very minute quantity and in specialized cell types. Such genes can now be isolated using a variety of approaches, some of which are described in this volume. The rapid progress during the last decade in regeneration of a number of crop plants and the availability of molecular tools to introduce foreign genes in plants is allowing the engineering of specific traits of agri­ cultural importance. These genes must, however, be regulated in a spatial and temporal manner in order to have desired effects on plant devel­ opment and productivity. The habitat of plants necessitate adaptive responses with respect to the environmental changes. Starting from germination of the seed, the plant begins to sense environmental cues such as moisture, light, temperature and the presence of pathogens, and begins to respond to them. Little is known about various signal transduction pathways that lead to biochemical and morphogenetic responses, in particular, transition from vegetative to reproductive phase. With the availability of tools to generate specific mutations via transposon tagging, identification and isolation of genes affecting these processes may be facilitated. Transfer of these genes into heterologous environments will allow understanding of the complex processes that control plant development

Etude de l'épissage alternatif de l'ARN 35S du virus de la mosaïque du chou-fleur (CaMV) et de l'export nucléaire des ARN viraux by Clément Bouton( )

1 edition published in 2014 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

L'épissage alternatif et l'export nucléaire de l'ARN pré-génomique 35S du virus de la mosaïque du chou-fleur (CaMV) ont fait l'objet de peu d'études. Quatre isoformes épissées de l'ARN 35S ont déjà été décrites. Nos résultats montrent que l'épissage alternatif est plus complexe vu que plus d'une douzaine d'isoformes d'ARN 35S sont générées par ce mécanisme. Ce processus ne semble pas avoir pour fonction d'augmenter la complexité du protéome viral. Le rôle de l'épissage alternatif apparait encore difficile à appréhender puisque l'inactivation des sites d'épissage est systématiquement contrecarrée par l'utilisation de sites cryptiques. Pour maintenir l'intégrité du génome viral, des molécules d'ARN 35S préservées de l'épissage sont exportées vers le cytoplasme. L'essentiel de nos travaux sur ce sujet a porté sur le développement d'approches destinées à l'étude de la voie d'export nucléaire de l'ARN 35S, et des séquences et protéines virales potentiellement impliquées dans ce processus
