- ... Arabidopsis thaliana and other members of the Brassicaceae accumulate the hydroxycinnamic acid esters sinapoylmalate in leaves and sinapoylcholine in seeds. Our recent understanding of the phenylpropanoid pathway although complex has enabled us to perturb the sinapine biosynthesis pathway in plants. Sinapine (sinapoylcholine) is the most abundant antinutritional phenolic compound in seeds of cruci ...

- ... Mirafiori lettuce virus (MiLV), a plant RNA virus belonging to the genus Ophiovirus, is considered to be a causal agent of lettuce big-vein disease. In this study, inverted repeats of a fragment of the coat protein (CP) gene of MiLV in a binary vector pBI121 were transferred via Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation into lettuce (Lactuca sativa L.) in order to generate MiLV-resistant l ...
