    Peptide Feeding and Mechanical Wounding for Tomato Seedlings
    Authors:  Lei Wang, Yan Wang and Georg Felix, date: 03/20/2019, view: 2329, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Plants need to respond appropriately to wounding and herbivorous insects. Peptide signals have been implicated in local and systemic induction of appropriate plant defense responses. To study these peptide signals and their perception in host plants, it is important to have reproducible bioassays. Several assays, such as treatment of peptide ...
    1-MCP (1-methylcyclopropene) Treatment Protocol for Fruit or Vegetables
    Authors:  Gamrasni Dan, Goldway Martin, Stern Yosi, Breitel Dario and Aharoni Asaph, date: 05/20/2017, view: 10219, Q&A: 4
    [Abstract] 1-MCP (1-methylcyclopropene) is a simple synthetic hydrocarbon molecule that interacts with the ethylene receptor and inhibits the response of fruit or plant to ethylene. 1-MCP has opened new opportunities in handling harvested crops and serves as a powerful tool to learn about plant response to ethylene (Watkins and Miller, 2006). 1-MCP is ...
    Hydroponic Culture of ‘Micro-Tom’ Tomato
    Authors:  Reiko Motohashi, Harumi Enoki, Chikako Fukazawa and Yoshikazu Kiriiwa, date: 10/05/2015, view: 9800, Q&A: 3
    [Abstract] We use ‘Micro-Tom’ to study tomato fruit ripening and development mechanisms. ‘Micro-Tom’ is suitable for cultivation and experiments due to its small size of 10 to 20 cm in height and short life cycle of 3 months. There is also an abundance of publically available information on ‘Micro-Tom’ including EST, full-length cDNA clones and transcriptome ...
    Salinity Assay in Tomato
    [Abstract] Tomato is one of the most important horticultural crops worldwide, and is cultivated in semi-arid regions in which soil and groundwater salinity is an increasing limitation to yield. The assessment of the responses of new cultivars to salt and the comparisons among cultivars and wild species are of great interest in tomato breeding. This assay ...
