    Authors:  Mengting Pi, Qi Gao and Chunying Kang, date: 06/05/2019, view: 1430, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Strawberry, including the woodland strawberry Fragaria vesca (2x) and the cultivated strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa, 8x), has emerged as a model system for studying fruit development and ripening. Transient expression provides a quick assay for gene functions or gene interactions. In strawberry, ...
    Pectin Nanostructure Visualization by Atomic Force Microscopy
    [Abstract] Pectins, complex polysaccharides rich in galacturonic acid, are a major component of primary plant cell walls. These macromolecules regulate cell wall porosity and intercellular adhesion, being important in the control of cell expansion and differentiation through their effect on the rheological properties of the cell wall. In fruits, pectin ...
    Agrobacterium-mediated Transformation of Strawberry
    Author:  Jan G. Schaart, date: 01/05/2014, view: 9385, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Traditional breeding for improvement of strawberry (Fragaria x ananassa) is difficult because strawberry is an octoploid, hybrid species. Genetic modification of strawberry would though be a promising alternative for obtaining the desired improvements in existing elite strawberry cultivars (Schaart et al., 2011). The availability ...
