    Visualization of Nitric Oxide, Measurement of Nitrosothiols Content, Activity of NOS and NR in Wheat Seedlings
    [Abstract] Nitric oxide (NO), is a redox-active, endogenous signalling molecule involved in the regulation of numerous processes. It plays a crucial role in adaptation and tolerance to various abiotic and biotic stresses. In higher plants, NO is produced either by enzymatic or non-enzymatic reduction of nitrite and an oxidative pathway requiring a putative ...
    Wheat Root-dip Inoculation with Fusarium graminearum and Assessment of Root Rot Disease Severity
    Authors:  Qing Wang and Sven Gottwald, date: 03/20/2017, view: 9246, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Fusarium graminearum is one of the most common and potent fungal pathogens of wheat (Triticum aestivum) and other cereals, known for causing devastating yield losses and mycotoxin contaminations of food and feed. The pathogen is mainly considered as a paradigm for the floral disease Fusarium head blight, while its ability to ...
    MIFE Technique-based Screening for Mesophyll K+ Retention for Crop Breeding for Salinity Tolerance
    Authors:  Honghong Wu, Lana Shabala, Meixue Zhou and Sergey Shabala, date: 05/05/2015, view: 8771, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Potassium is known as a rate-limiting factor for crop yield and plays an important role in plants response under abiotic stresses. Recently, cytosolic K+ retention ability in leaf mesophyll has emerged as an important component of plant salt tolerance mechanism (Wu et al., 2013; Wu et al., 2014; Wu et al., ...
    Fusarium Virulence Assay on Wheat and Barley Seedlings
    Authors:  Lorenzo Covarelli, Donald Gardiner, Giovanni Beccari and Paul Nicholson, date: 04/05/2013, view: 12453, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Fusarium root and crown rot is a very important complex disease of small grain cereals worldwide which may lead to very high yield losses. Traditional virulence assays are time consuming and often require plants to be grown in greenhouses or climatic chambers in soil. We describe a rapid laboratory assay for assessing such a disease in wheat and ...
