A Review of Autism and Melatonin
Melatonin is synthesized in the pineal gland of the brain from the amino acid tryptophan. Light cycles regulate melatonin synthesis and release, which is responsible for the circadian and seasonal signal within the human ...
Genetic transformation of Switchgrass plants with FNR-FLD flavodoxin genes for drought resistance and salt tolerance
Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.) is a warm-grass native to North America’s prairies. It is a common forage grass and high potential biofuel crop. To produce the maximum number of biofuels, the switchgrass plants must have ...
Development of high yield Switchgrass Cultivar by Agrobacterium-Mediated transformation with InsP-5-Ptase Gene
InsP-5-Ptase gene is involved in the phosphoinostide pathway which functions as a mechanism of drought response. The protein products of this gene hydrolyze soluble inositol phosphates terminating the signal of InsP3 ...
Soybean Transformation with Cysteine Protease Inhibitor (CPI1) Gene for Resistance and Tolerance
Soybeans (Glycine max) are one of the major agricultural important crops in the United States. These legumes have a variety of uses, including food and industrial applications. Soybean growth is susceptible to drought, ...
