Summary Retrocyclin‐101 (RC101) and Protegrin‐1 (PG1) are two important antimicrobial peptides that can be used as therapeutic agents against bacterial and/or viral infections, especially those caused by the HIV‐1 or sexually transmitted bacteria. Because of their antimicrobial activity and...
Summary Genetic modification of Zn/Cd accumulation in roots and shoots for biofortification or phytoremediation is a focus of this manuscript. We expressed AtHMA4 (a P1BATPase involved in Zn and Cd transport), AtHMA4‐trunc (lacking the C‐terminal region) and AtHMA4‐C terminus (the...
Summary 2‐Acetyl‐1‐pyrroline (2AP), the volatile compound that provides the ‘popcorn‐like’ aroma in a large variety of cereal and food products, is widely found in nature. Deficiency in amino aldehyde dehydrogenase (AMADH) was previously shown to be the likely cause of 2AP...
Summary Sugarcane plants were developed that produce the sucrose isomers trehalulose and isomaltulose through expression of a vacuole‐targeted trehalulose synthase modified from the gene in ‘Pseudomonas mesoacidophila MX‐45’ and controlled by the maize ubiquitin (Ubi‐1) promoter....
Summary Two C‐repeat binding factor genes (EguCBF1a/b), isolated from E. gunnii and differentially cold‐regulated, were constitutively overexpressed in a cold‐sensitive Eucalyptus hybrid. In addition to the expected improvement on freezing tolerance, some resulting transgenic lines...
Summary The concept of sustainable development forms the basis for a wide variety of international and national policy making. World population continues to expand at about 80 M people per year, while the demand for natural resources continues to escalate. Important policies, treaties and goals...
Summary Tumour necrosis factor (TNF) is a major pro‐inflammatory cytokine involved in multiple inflammatory diseases. The detrimental activity of TNF can be blocked by various antagonists, and commercial therapeutics based upon this principle have been approved for treatment of diseases...
Summary The Arabidopsis gene AVP1 encodes a vacuolar pyrophosphatase that functions as a proton pump on the vacuolar membrane. Overexpression of AVP1 in Arabidopsis, tomato and rice enhances plant performance under salt and drought stress conditions, because up‐regulation of the type I...
Summary A plant viral vector has the potential to efficiently produce recombinant proteins at a low cost in a short period. Although recombinant proteins can be also produced by transgenic plants, a plant viral vector, if available, may be more convenient when urgent scale‐up in production is...
