Saccharification Protocol for Small-scale Lignocellulosic Biomass Samples to Test Processing of Cellulose into Glucose
Authors:  Rebecca Van Acker, Ruben Vanholme, Kathleen Piens and Wout Boerjan, date: 01/05/2016, view: 3877, Q&A: 0
Second generation biofuels are derived from inedible lignocellulosic biomass of food and non-food crops. Lignocellulosic biomass is mainly composed of cell walls that contain a large proportion of cellulosic and hemicellulosic polysaccharides. An ...

Assessing Rates of Long-distance Carbon Transport in Arabidopsis by Collecting Phloem Exudations into EDTA Solutions after Photosynthetic Labeling with [14C]CO2
Authors:  Umesh P Yadav, Aswad S Khadilkar, Mearaj A Shaikh, Robert Turgeon and Brian G Ayre, date: 12/20/2017, view: 581, Q&A: 0
Phloem loading and transport of photoassimilate from photoautotrophic source leaves to heterotrophic sink organs are essential physiological processes that help the disparate organs of a plant function as a single, unified organism. We present three ...

Isolation of Fucus serratus Gametes and Cultivation of the Zygotes
Authors:  Amandine Siméon and Cécile Hervé, date: 07/20/2017, view: 1138, Q&A: 0
Zygotes of the Fucale species are a powerful model system to study cell polarization and asymmetrical cell division (Bisgrove and Kropf, 2008). The Fucale species of brown algae grow in the intertidal zone where they reproduce by releasing large ...
