The relationship between an invertebrate and another organism (the host), one of which lives at the expense of the other. Traditionally excluded from definition of parasites are pathogenic BACTERIA; FUNGI; VIRUSES; and PLANTS; though they may live parasitically.
The interactions between a host and a pathogen, usually resulting in disease.
A nonmetallic element with atomic symbol C, atomic number 6, and atomic weight [12.0096; 12.0116]. It may occur as several different allotropes including DIAMOND; CHARCOAL; and GRAPHITE; and as SOOT from incompletely burned fuel.
A mitosporic Leotiales fungal genus of plant pathogens. It has teleomorphs in the genus Botryotina.
Higher plants that live primarily in terrestrial habitats, although some are secondarily aquatic. Most obtain their energy from PHOTOSYNTHESIS. They comprise the vascular and non-vascular plants.
Any of the various plants of the genus Lactuca, especially L. sativa, cultivated for its edible leaves. (From American Heritage Dictionary, 2d ed)
Eukaryotes in the group STRAMENOPILES, formerly considered FUNGI, whose exact taxonomic level is unsettled. Many consider Oomycetes (Oomycota) a phylum in the kingdom Stramenopila, or alternatively, as Pseudofungi in the phylum Heterokonta of the kingdom Chromista. They are morphologically similar to fungi but have no close phylogenetic relationship to them. Oomycetes are found in both fresh and salt water as well as in terrestrial environments. (Alexopoulos et al., Introductory Mycology, 4th ed, pp683-4). They produce flagellated, actively motile spores (zoospores) that are pathogenic to many crop plants and FISHES.

Separation of shoot and floral identity in Arabidopsis. (1/17430)

The overall morphology of an Arabidopsis plant depends on the behaviour of its meristems. Meristems derived from the shoot apex can develop into either shoots or flowers. The distinction between these alternative fates requires separation between the function of floral meristem identity genes and the function of an antagonistic group of genes, which includes TERMINAL FLOWER 1. We show that the activities of these genes are restricted to separate domains of the shoot apex by different mechanisms. Meristem identity genes, such as LEAFY, APETALA 1 and CAULIFLOWER, prevent TERMINAL FLOWER 1 transcription in floral meristems on the apex periphery. TERMINAL FLOWER 1, in turn, can inhibit the activity of meristem identity genes at the centre of the shoot apex in two ways; first by delaying their upregulation, and second, by preventing the meristem from responding to LEAFY or APETALA 1. We suggest that the wild-type pattern of TERMINAL FLOWER 1 and floral meristem identity gene expression depends on the relative timing of their upregulation.  (+info)

Activation of systemic acquired silencing by localised introduction of DNA. (2/17430)

BACKGROUND: In plants, post-transcriptional gene silencing results in RNA degradation after transcription. Among tobacco transformants carrying a nitrate reductase (Nia) construct under the control of the cauliflower mosaic virus 35S promoter (35S-Nia2), one class of transformants spontaneously triggers Nia post-transcriptional gene silencing (class II) whereas another class does not (class I). Non-silenced plants of both classes become silenced when grafted onto silenced stocks, indicating the existence of a systemic silencing signal. Graft-transmitted silencing is maintained in class II but not in class I plants when removed from silenced stocks, indicating similar requirements for spontaneous triggering and maintenance. RESULTS: Introduction of 35S-Nia2 DNA by the gene transfer method called biolistics led to localised acquired silencing (LAS) in bombarded leaves of wild-type, class I and class II plants, and to systemic acquired silencing (SAS) in class II plants. SAS occurred even if the targeted leaf was removed 2 days after bombardment, indicating that the systemic signal is produced, transmitted and amplified rapidly. SAS was activated by sense, antisense and promoterless Nia2 DNA constructs, indicating that transcription is not required although it does stimulate SAS. CONCLUSIONS: SAS was activated by biolistic introduction of promoterless constructs, indicating that the DNA itself is a potent activator of post-transcriptional gene silencing. The systemic silencing signal invaded the whole plant by cell-to-cell and long-distance propagation, and reamplification of the signal.  (+info)

Gene silencing: plants and viruses fight it out. (3/17430)

Plants can become 'immune' to attack by viruses by degrading specific viral RNA, but some plant viruses have evolved the general capacity to suppress this resistance mechanism.  (+info)

Loss-of-function mutations in the rice homeobox gene OSH15 affect the architecture of internodes resulting in dwarf plants. (4/17430)

The rice homeobox gene OSH15 (Oryza sativa homeobox) is a member of the knotted1-type homeobox gene family. We report here on the identification and characterization of a loss-of-function mutation in OSH15 from a library of retrotransposon-tagged lines of rice. Based on the phenotype and map position, we have identified three independent deletion alleles of the locus among conventional morphological mutants. All of these recessive mutations, which are considered to be null alleles, exhibit defects in internode elongation. Introduction of a 14 kbp genomic DNA fragment that includes all exons, introns and 5'- and 3'- flanking sequences of OSH15 complemented the defects in internode elongation, confirming that they were caused by the loss-of-function of OSH15. Internodes of the mutants had abnormal-shaped epidermal and hypodermal cells and showed an unusual arrangement of small vascular bundles. These mutations demonstrate a role for OSH15 in the development of rice internodes. This is the first evidence that the knotted1-type homeobox genes have roles other than shoot apical meristem formation and/or maintenance in plant development.  (+info)

An Arabidopsis 14-3-3 protein can act as a transcriptional activator in yeast. (5/17430)

The 14-3-3 proteins are a group of highly conserved and widely distributed eukaryotic proteins with diverse functions. One 14-3-3 protein, AFT1 from Arabidopsis thaliana, was found to be able to activate transcription in yeast. When fused to the DNA-binding domain of a bacterial protein LexA, AFT1 can activate transcription of reporter genes that contain LexA operator sequences in their promoters. Although the in vivo function of AFT1 is not completely known, its similarity to previously identified proteins found in transcription complexes of Arabidopsis and maize suggests that AFT1 and some other 14-3-3 proteins may activate gene expression in other systems as well.  (+info)

Magnesium ion-induced changes in the binding mode of adenylates to chloroplast coupling factor 1. (6/17430)

The effect of Mg2+ on the binding of adenylates to isolated chloroplast coupling factor 1 (CF1) was studied using CD spectrometry and ultrafiltration. At adenylate concentrations smaller than 100 muM, one mole of CF1 binds three moles of ATP (or ADP) regardless of the presence of Mg2+. In the presence of Mg2+, the first two ATP's bind to CF1 independently with the same binding constant of 2.5 X 10(-1) muM-1, then the third ATP binds with a much higher affinity of 10 muM-1. In the absence of Mg2+, the first ATP binds to CF1 with a binding constant of 2.5 X 10(-1) muM-1 then the other two ATP's bind less easily with the same binding constant of 4.0 X 10(-2) muM-1. The binding mode of ADP to CF1 is quite similar to that of ATP. In the presence of Mg2+, the binding constants of the first two ADP's are both 7.6 X 10(-2) muM-1, that of the third ADP being 4.0 muM-1. In the absence of Mg2+, the binding constant of the first ADP is 7.6 X 10(-2) muM-1, the constants of the other two ADP's both being 4.0 X 10(-2) muM-1. AMP caused a negligible change in CD.  (+info)

Isolation and characterization of two mouse L cell lines resistant to the toxic lectin ricin. (7/17430)

Two variant mouse L cell lines (termed CL 3 and CL 6) have been selected for resistant to ricin, a galactose-binding lectin with potent cytotoxic activity. The resistant lines exhibit a 50 to 70% decrease in ricin binding and a 300- to 500-fold increase in resistance to the toxic effects of ricin. Crude membrane preparations of CL 3 cells have increased sialic acid content (200% of control), while the galactose, mannose, and hexosamine content is within normal limits. Both the glycoproteins and glycolipids of CL 3 cells have increased sialic acid, with the GM3:lactosylceramide ratios for parent L and CL 3 cells being 0.29 and 1.5, respectively. In contrast, the membranes of CL 6 cells have a decrease in sialic acid, galactose, and hexosamine content with mannose being normal. Both cell lines have specific alterations in glycosyltransferase activities which can account for the observed membrane sugar changes. CL 3 cells have increased CMP-sialic acid:glycoprotein sialyltransferase and GM3 synthetase activities, while CL 6 cells have decrease UDP-GlcNAc:glycoproteinN-acetylglucosaminyltransferase and DPU-galactose:glycoprotein galactosyltransferase activities. The increased sialic acid content of CL 3 cells serves to mask ricin binding sites, since neuraminidase treatment of this cell line restores ricin binding to essentially normal levels. However, the fact that neuraminidase-treated CL 3 cells are still 45-fold resistant to ricin indicates that either a special class of productive ricin binding sites is not being exposed or that the cell line has a second mechanism for ricin resistance.  (+info)

Functional expression of the plant alternative oxidase affects growth of the yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe. (8/17430)

We have investigated the extent to which functional expression of the plant alternative oxidase (from Sauromatum guttatum) in Schizosaccharomyces pombe affects yeast growth. When cells are cultured on glycerol, the maximum specific growth rate is decreased from 0.13 to 0.11 h-1 while growth yield is lowered by 20% (from 1. 14 x 10(8) to 9.12 x 10(7) cells ml-1). Kinetic studies suggest that the effect on growth is mitochondrial in origin. In isolated mitochondria we found that the alternative oxidase actively competes with the cytochrome pathway for reducing equivalents and contributes up to 24% to the overall respiratory activity. Metabolic control analysis reveals that the alternative oxidase exerts a considerable degree of control (22%) on total electron flux. Furthermore, the negative control exerted by the alternative oxidase on the flux ratio of electrons through the cytochrome and alternative pathways is comparable with the positive control exerted on this flux-ratio by the cytochrome pathway. To our knowledge, this is the first paper to report a phenotypic effect because of plant alternative oxidase expression. We suggest that the effect on growth is the result of high engagement of the non-protonmotive alternative oxidase in yeast respiration that, consequently, lowers the efficiency of energy conservation and hence growth.  (+info)

More consumers are discovering they dont need beef, poultry, pork, or seafood when it comes to meeting their protein needs. The thriving and growing market for plant proteins has given Americans the push to become less reliant upon-or in some cases even entirely forgo-animal-based protein sources, according to market research publisher Packaged Facts in the new report, Food Formulation and Ingredient Trends: Plant Proteins. Consumer interest in boosting protein intake remains strong headed into 2016 with more attention being paid to the specific types of protein being consumed. The desire for clean labels, ease of digestion, the need or desire to avoid allergens, compatibility with vegetarian and vegan lifestyles and concerns about sustainability among the general population are putting the spotlight on plant proteins. Consumer notions of what constitutes a good protein source are expanding to include a wider variety of plant protein ingredients. Subsequently interest in plant protein ...
With our global population projected to reach nine billion by the late 2030s, and with rising consumer incomes in many emerging countries in recent decades, the demand for quality dairy protein should continue to grow. Plant proteins will likely continue to have a rising share of the global protein market, but - with 1.2 billion more mouths to feed between now and the late 2030s - there is plenty of market room for both plant and animal proteins. The need for additional supplies of sustainably produced dairy and plant proteins is expected to continue expanding in the coming years and decades as the world seeks to meet a surging public appetite for quality food and beverage protein choices. Consumer tastes for different kinds of new plant proteins have already developed rapidly over the last decade, so going forward it will take new and innovative plant proteins to augment traditional sources of protein (like dairy) in food and beverage product development.. ...

Yes, we need to stand our ground on labeling and hold them to the fire to keep marking claims honest and transparent. A protein patty shouldnt be called a burger. But mocking them only fuels their rhetoric and gives them more attention.. Agriculture is a diverse system where livestock and plant operations are interdependent upon each other. No matter how hard we (or marketers try to persuade us otherwise), both will need to coexist to remain sustainable..

Any information (addresses, phone numbers, etc) on firms specializing in plant protein antibodies would be appreciated. Thanks. George George Edick RPI - Dept. Biology Troy, NY 12180 edickg at ...
Recognition of microbial pathogens by plants triggers the hypersensitive reaction, a common form of programmed cell death in plants. These dying cells generate signals that activate the plant immune system and alarm the neighboring cells as well as the whole plant to activate defense responses to limit the spread of the pathogen. The molecular mechanisms behind the hypersensitive reaction are largely unknown except for the recognition process of pathogens. We delineate the NRP-gene in soybean, which is specifically induced during this programmed cell death and contains a novel protein domain, which is commonly found in different plant proteins. The sequence analysis of the protein, encoded by the NRP-gene from soybean, led to the identification of a novel domain, which we named DCD, because it is found in plant proteins involved in d evelopment and c ell d eath. The domain is shared by several proteins in the Arabidopsis and the rice genomes, which otherwise show a different protein architecture.
Animal proteins have got a bad rap, and research shows how switching to plant-based proteins is better for cardiovascular health. A study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association looked at the effects of substituting one or two servings of animal proteins with plant proteins. The researchers discovered that such a move could reduce the main cholesterol markers by close to 5 percent. While seemingly a small change, study authors conclude that this shows that plant protein as part of a comprehensive lipid‐lowering dietary pattern alone or as an add‐on to other lipid‐lowering therapy can help people achieve their lipid targets and reduce CVD risk. We offer a wide range of heart-healthy plant-based protein foods to help you make this lifestyle change. ...

  • Beans rank nearly as high as lentils on the protein scale, and there are myriad options to match any taste profile. (
  • Beans (27% protein) lentils (36%), chickpeas (33%), peas (30%), and kale (22%) provide the greatest opportunity to acquire micronutrients packaged with protein. (
  • Seven years since Parabel started commercializing protein derived from water lentils-also known as duckweed or Lemnaceae-the company found that supplement formulators in the US are more reluctant to use the ingredient than other plant-sourced proteins. (
  • Lentils provide eight grams of protein per one-cup serving. (
  • Ideally, lentils are combined with complementary proteins such as nuts, seeds, rice and grains to become a complete protein that contains all nine amino acids. (
  • Powering up on plant proteins-beans, lentils, peas, soyfoods, nuts, seeds, and whole grains-has been one of the hottest food and nutrition trends over the past few years. (
  • Nuts, legumes including beans and lentils, and even whole grains all contain some protein and can be quite filling. (
  • lentils are based on the principal of combining complementary proteins. (
  • Overall, the global demand for grains and pulses, including soy, peas, wheat, canola, oats and lentils, for the production of alterative protein is conservatively estimated to hit 41 million tonnes by 2035, with soy and pea farming taking more than half the market share. (
  • In short, Canada is perfectly poised to embrace the opportunity to become a value-added, plant-protein producer from its existing position as the world's leading exporter of pulses, peas and lentils. (
  • Currently, some of the hottest protein sources are plant-based, and include algae, quinoa, and pulses (beans, lentils, and peas), according to surveys conducted by the Institute of Food Technologies. (
  • Negative associations of soy with GMOs and allergens is leaving room for other legume based proteins, such as chickpeas, lentils, fava, mung, and lupin beans to capture a rapidly increasing share of the market. (
  • The commonality among the various vegetarian groups is that they all center on a plant-based diet that emphasizes vegetables, fruit, grains and legumes (beans, lentils, and peanuts). (
  • And beans and lentils are great protein additions to toss in soups and salads. (
  • Derived from water lentils, Lentein is rich in protein and contains levels of essential amino acids and branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) comparable to whey. (
  • Lentils: 8.84 grams of protein per 1/2 cup. (
  • Concerned about meeting protein needs on a vegan or vegetarian diet? (
  • Soy products such as tofu, tempeh, and edamame are among the richest sources of protein in a vegan diet. (
  • Tofu has long been associated with vegan and vegetarian diets as a protein replacement for good reason. (
  • No doubt the sustainability issue is the biggest factor driving interest," says Virginia Messina, MPH, RD, coauthor of Vegan for Life: Everything You Need to Know to Be Healthy and Fit on a Plant-Based Diet . (
  • If you have recently decided to go vegan, but you're having a little bit of trouble getting enough protein in your diet, several powders might be right for you. (
  • But plant foods can provide protein as well, and there are plenty of strong vegan athletes-so it's definitely possible to build muscle on a plant-based diet. (
  • Because it's harder to get a good balance of amino acids with a vegan diet than an omnivorous one, and because plant-based protein sources are sometimes less digestible, some guidelines recommend that vegan athletes aim for a slightly higher total amount of protein than omnivores, just to be sure you're covering all your needs. (
  • Vegan means non-meat, plant-based. (
  • In a national online survey , respondents were asked to select "vegan" or "plant-based" in a series of questions. (
  • Interestingly, the term plant-based was identified as offering more nutrients, tasting better, and being healthier compared to vegan. (
  • Our organic and vegan oat protein milks harness the true promise of plants, from protein-rich oats, nuts and seeds to naturally delicious spices and botanicals. (
  • The market for plant-based, vegetarian and vegan options is booming. (
  • Products with a plant based claim are perceived as healthier and as having a better taste compared to products with a vegan and/or vegetarian claim. (
  • Plant based, vegan, and vegetarian all show strong growth, with plant based having the lowest penetration but fastest growth. (
  • There's never been an easier time to enjoy varied and exciting plant-based dishes, whether simply plant-forward or vegan/vegetarian. (
  • So many of the novel vegan proteins in the world are focused on pea protein," she says. (

  • While animal proteins increase levels of the cancer-promoting growth hormone IGF-1, and most plant proteins bring levels down, "high quality" plant proteins, such as soy, may not significantly affect levels in either direction. (
  • One of soy's selling points is that it has "high quality" protein. (
  • After all, a high-protein morning shake is just what we need for a busy day of writing, editing, and design meetings. (
  • While the vegetables that follow are high in protein relative to other vegetables, they aren't high in protein relative to other animal-based sources. (
  • Scientists in the UK have uncovered some of the secrets of this unique high performance protein. (
  • It is high in protein and low in carbohydrates and sugar. (
  • High-protein duckweed could also become a viable source if availability issues are successfully addressed in the coming year. (
  • Chicken, like beef, contains harmful saturated fat and cholesterol while studies show that affordable, plant-based options can help people prevent and even reverse diabetes , heart disease , and high blood pressure , among other conditions. (
  • The odds that animal proteins would be listed for all three is very high. (
  • Allergic properties are closely linked with high thermal stability and resistance to gastrointestinal proteolysis of the proteins. (
  • Exceptional Quality Organic Plant Protein! (
  • Maxine's Plant protein is a 100% Pure, Natural, non-GMO Organic Plant Protein formulated to build, repair and tone lean muscle and optimise your energy and health. (
  • So load up on spinach , kale, mustard greens, Swiss chard and collard greens to increase your protein intake. (
  • See Protein Intake & IGF-1 Production and Higher Quality May Mean Higher Risk for some immediate background, and IGF-1 as One-Stop Cancer Shop for why we'd like to see these levels low in adulthood (though not in childhood-see Cancer-Proofing Mutation ). (
  • Vegans may require a slightly higher protein intake, due to the slight decrease in digestibility in plant proteins. (
  • Few studies have evaluated how protein intake is associated with menopause timing, they add, and to their knowledge this is the first to look specifically at early menopause. (
  • During colonization of their hosts, pathogens secrete effector proteins to promote disease development through various mechanisms. (
  • A protein called enhanced disease susceptibility 1 (EDS1) plays a central role in plants' ability to defend themselves from pathogens. (
  • Depending on the pathogens present, a plant may synthesize auxin. (
