The article presents a study which examines fruit ripening in Trincadeira grapes taking into account the transcriptional and metabolic profilings complemented with biochemical data. The study compared mRNA expression profiles of four time points spanning developmental stages from pea size green berries, through veraison and mature berries and in two seasons. The mRNA expressions were compared with the Affymetrix GrapeGen genome array.

    Grafting is an important, widely used plant propagation technique but its physiological effects are as yet insufficiently understood. Recent studies indicate that movement of proteins and small RNAs through the graft union might be involved. MicroRNAs are known to play a significant role in...

    Polyadenylation (poly(A)) of eukaryotic mRNA is a critical step for gene expression. In plants, poly(A) signals leading to the formation of polyadenosine tails after mRNAs include the far upstream elements, the AAUAAA-like signals, and the mRNA cleavage sites for poly(A). Multiple AAUAAA signals...

    LTR retrotransposons are often the most abundant components of plant genomes and can impact gene and genome evolution. Most reported LTR retrotransposons are large elements (.4 kb) and are most often found in heterochromatic (gene poor) regions. We report the smallest LTR retrotransposon found...

    Background: Grafting has been widely practiced for centuries in the propagation and production of many vegetable and fruit species. However, the underlying molecular and genetic mechanisms for how the graft partners interact with each other to produce a successful graft remain largely unknown....

    Background: Abiotic stresses, such as water deficit and soil salinity, result in changes in physiology, nutrient use, and vegetative growth in vines, and ultimately, yield and flavor in berries of wine grape, Vitis vinifera L. Large-scale expressed sequence tags (ESTs) were generated, curated,...

    Completion of the sequencing of the Brassica rapa genome enabled us to undertake a genome-wide identification and functional study of the gene families related to the morphological diversity and agronomic traits of Brassica crops. In this study, we identified the auxin response factor ( ARF)...

    Genome Walking together with RACE techniques were used to clone KCS6 genes from B. napus cv. Zhongshuang 9. Two copies of KCS6 gene were found in B. napus, depending on their ancestral origin. One was BnKCS6c, showing 99% identity to corresponding B. oleracea mRNA. The other was BnKCS6a showing...

    Background: In situ hybridisation can provide cellular, and in some cases sub-cellular, resolution of mRNA levels within multicellular organisms and is widely used to provide spatial and temporal information on gene expression. However, standard protocols are complex and laborious to implement,...

    Background: Genetic engineering of plants that results in successful establishment of new biochemical or regulatory pathways requires stable introduction of one or more genes into the plant genome. It might also be necessary to down-regulate or turn off expression of endogenous genes in order to...
