    • A tomato tocopherol-binding protein sheds light on intracellular a-tocopherol metabolism in plants 

      Bermudez Salazar, Luisa; del Pozo, Talía; Lira, Bruno Silvestre; Godoy, Fabiana de; Boos, Irene; Romano, Cecilia; Previtali, Viola; Almeida, Juliana; Brehelin, Claire; Asis, Ramón; Quadrana, Leandro Daniel; Demarco, Diego; Alseekh, Saleh; Salinas Gamboa, Rigel; Perez-Flores, Laura; Dominguez, Pia Guadalupe; Rothan, Christophe; Fernie, Alisdair R.; Gonzalez, Maurıcio; Stocker, Achim; Hemmerle, Andreas; Clausen, Mads Hartving; Carrari, Fernando; Rossi, Magdalena (Oxford University Press, 2018-11)
      Tocopherols are non-polar compounds synthesized in the plastids, which function as major antioxidants of the plant cells and are essential in the human diet. Both the intermediates and final products of the tocopherol ...
    • Coupling virus-induced gene silencing to exogenous green fluorescence protein expression provides a highly efficient system for functional genomics in arabidopsis and across all stages of tomato fruit development 

      Quadrana, Leandro Daniel; Rodriguez, Maria Cecilia; Bermudez Salazar, Luisa; Nunes Nesi, Adriano; Fernie, Alisdair R.; Descalzo, Adriana Maria; Asis, Ramón; Rossi, Magdalena; Asurmendi, Sebastian; Carrari, Fernando (2011-07)
      Since the advent of the postgenomic era, efforts have focused on the development of rapid strategies for annotating plant genes of unknown function. Given its simplicity and rapidity, virus-induced gene silencing (VIGS) ...
    • Crop metabolomics : from diagnostics to assisted breeding 

      Alseekh, Saleh; Bermudez Salazar, Luisa; De Haro, Luis Alejandro; Fernie, Alisdair R.; Carrari, Fernando (Springer, 2018-11)
      Background Until recently, plant metabolomics have provided a deep understanding on the metabolic regulation in individual plants as experimental units. The application of these techniques to agricultural systems subjected ...
    • Metabolic analyses of interspecific tomato recombinant inbred lines for fruit quality improvement 

      Lopez, Mariana Gabriela; Zanor, María Inés; Pratta, Guillermo Raúl; Stegmayer, Georgina; Boggio, Silvana Beatriz; Conte, Mariana; Bermudez Salazar, Luisa; Coluccio Leskow, Carla; Rodríguez, Gustavo Rubén; Picardi, Liliana Amelia; Zorzoli, Roxana; Fernie, Alisdair R.; Milone, Diego Humberto; Asis, Ramón; Valle, Estela Marta; Carrari, Fernando (Springer, 2015-10)
      Elucidating the determinants of tomato nutritional value and fruit quality to introduce improved varieties on the international market represents a major challenge for crop biotechnology. Different strategies can be ...
    • Natural occurring epialleles determine vitamin E accumulation in tomato fruits 

      Quadrana, Leandro Daniel; Almeida de Souza, Juliana Beatriz; Asis, Ramón; Duffy, Tomas; Dominguez, Pia Guadalupe; Bermudez Salazar, Luisa; Conti, Gabriela; Silva, Junia V. Corrêa da; Peralta, Iris Edith; Colot, Vincent; Asurmendi, Sebastian; Fernie, Alisdair R.; Rossi, Magdalena; Carrari, Fernando Oscar (2014-07)
      Vitamin E (VTE) content is a low heritability nutritional trait for which the genetic determinants are poorly understood. Here, we focus on a previously detected major tomato VTE quantitative trait loci (QTL; mQTL9-2-6) ...
    • Silencing of the tomato Sugar Partitioning Affecting protein (SPA) modifies sink strength through a shift in leaf sugar metabolism 

      Bermudez Salazar, Luisa; de Godoy, Fabiana; Baldet, Pierre; Demarco, Diego; Osorio, Sonia; Quadrana, Leandro Daniel; Almeida de Souza, Juliana Beatriz; Asis, Ramón; Gibon, Yves; Fernie, Alisdair R.; Rossi, Maria Magdalena; Carrari, Fernando (Wiley; Society for Experimental Biology, 2014-03)
      Limitations in our understanding about the mechanisms that underlie source-sink assimilate partitioning are increasingly becoming a major hurdle for crop yield enhancement via metabolic engineering. By means of a ...
    • The cytosolic invertase NI6 affects vegetative growth, flowering, fruit set, and yield in tomato 

      Coluccio Leskow, Carla; Conte, Mariana; del Pozo, Talía; Bermudez Salazar, Luisa; Lira, Bruno Silvestre; Gramegna, Giovanna; Baroli, Irene; Burgos, Estanislao; Zavallo, Diego; Kamenetzky, Laura; Asis, Ramón; Gonzalez, Maurıcio; Fernie, Alisdair R.; Rossi, Magdalena; Osorio, Sonia; Carrari, Fernando (Oxford University Press, 2021-03)
      Sucrose metabolism is important for most plants, both as the main source of carbon and via signaling mechanisms that have been proposed for this molecule. A cleaving enzyme, invertase (INV) channels sucrose into sink ...
