    • Engineering Pseudomonas protegens Pf-5 for nitrogen fixation and its application to improve plant growth under nitrogen-deficient conditions 

      Setten, Lorena; Soto, Gabriela Cinthia; Mozzicafreddo, Matteo; Fox, Ana Romina; Lisi, Christian Daniel; Cuccioloni, Massimiliano; Angeletti, Mauro; Pagano, Elba Maria; Diaz Paleo, Antonio Horacio; Ayub, Nicolás Daniel (2013-05-13)
      Nitrogen is the second most critical factor for crop production after water. In this study, the beneficial rhizobacterium Pseudomonas protegens Pf-5 was genetically modified to fix nitrogen using the genes encoding the ...
    • Silencing of the glutathione biosynthetic pathway inhibits somatic embryogenesis in wheat 

      Bossio, Adrian Ezequiel; Diaz Paleo, Antonio Horacio; Del Vas, Mariana; Baroli, Irene; Acevedo, Alberto; Rios, Raul Daniel (Springer, 2013-02)
      Somatic embryogenesis in scutella of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is a well documented phenomenon and it has been shown through transcriptome analysis that genes involved in antioxidant responses, particularly in glutathione ...
    • Stress-induced expression of IPT gene in transgenic wheat reduces grain yield penalty under drought 

      Beznec, Ailin; Faccio, Paula Daniela; Miralles, Daniel J.; Abeledo, Leonor G.; Decima Oneto, Cecilia Andrea; Garibotto, María De Belén; Gonzalez, Germán Andrés; Moreyra, Federico; Elizondo, Matias; Ruiz, Monica Beatriz; Lewi, Dalia Marcela; Blumwald, Eduardo; Llorente, Berta; Diaz Paleo, Antonio Horacio; Bossio, Adrian Ezequiel (Springer, 2021-05)
      Background: The heterologous expression of isopentenyl transferase (IPT) under the transcriptional control of the senescence-associated receptor-like kinase (SARK) promoter delayed cellular senescence and, through it, ...
