Cover for Adaptations to aluminium toxicity.

Soil acidity limits agricultural production globally. Acid soils pose many stresses to plants but the major factor affecting plant growth is soluble aluminium, with Al3+ being the most toxic form. Al3+ damages root cells at sites in the apoplast and in the cytosol, and these rapidly inhibit root...

Cover for Artificial induction and maintenance of epigenetic variations in plants.

Some of the studies initiated a decade ago to understand the behaviour of transgenes have provided the first clear evidence for transgene-mediated induction and subsequent inheritance of epigenetic marks in plants. Now there is enough proof to show that it is possible to induce methylation of DNA...
