Article
Fig (Ficus carica L.) is a dioecious fruiting tree. However, Fig improvement was found challenging and time-consuming through conventional plant propagation methods due to low survival rate. Development of plant tissue culture technology through optimum regeneration pathway would offer many advantages especially on the mass production of elite and...

Fig, or Ficus carica, is a fruit tree from the Moraceae family and is widely grown in tropical and subtropical regions of the world. Fig plants are mainly propagated through grafting, air layering, and hardwood cutting whereby these methods were found to be less efficient. Plant tissue culture is efficient method to propagate plants, particularly t...

Solanum melongena L. commonly known as the eggplant or brinjal comes from the family of Solanaceae, sharing the same ancestor with the tomato and potato. It is an economically important crop worldwide, being well studied for its medicinal properties, nutritional values and its role as an alternative model plant. The eggplant fruit has been previous...
Conference Paper
The N-end rule pathway is a protein degradation pathway that relates the protein half-life with the identity of its N-terminal residues. A destabilizing N-terminal residues is created by enzymatic reaction or chemical modifications. This destabilized substrate will be recognized by PROTEOLYSIS 6 (PRT6) protein, which encodes an E3 ligase enzyme and...
Conference Paper
PROTEOLYSIS 6 plays major role in the N-end rule pathway as N-recognin which functions as E3 ligase enzyme. It mediates ubiquitin processes that lead to degradation of unstable substrate protein. The aim of the current study is to transform the PRT6 gene into tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) from the cultivar Micro-Tom and to investigate its function...
Article
Clinacanthus nutans (Burm.F.) Lindau is an herbaceous plant that has long been used for traditional medicinal purposes in Asia. It has recently gained popularity as an alternative treatment for cancer. The aim of this study was to establish cell suspension cultures of C. nutans and to identify targeted bioactive compounds in the cultures. Young lea...
Article
Clitoria ternatea L., or commonly known as butterfly pea, from the family of Fabaceae, is a perennial medicinal plant. Its flower which is deep blue or white in colour is commonly used as a natural food colorant. The plant originates from tropical Asia and known to possess essential bioactive compounds where the extracts from its roots, leaves and...
Article
Key message: This study highlights the changes in umami-related nucleotide and glutamate levels when the AMP deaminase gene was elevated in transgenic tomato. Taste is perceived as one of a combination of five sensations, sweet, sour, bitter, salty, and umami. The umami taste is best known as a savoury sensation and plays a central role in food fl...

Clinacanthus nutans (Burm. f.) Lindau is a medicinal plant that is widely used in traditional treatments for skin inflammation, skin lesions, viral infection and snake bites. This study investigates the effects of different concentrations of 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) on the induction of callus from Clinacanthus nutans leaves. Young and...
Article
The present study was conducted to develop targeted region amplification polymorphism (TRAP) and start codon targeted polymorphism (SCoT) DNA markers for the identification of somaclonal variation in cryopreserved Dendrobium Bobby Messina. With reference to previous orchid cryopreservation via PVS2 (plant vitrification solution) vitrification metho...
Article
Dendrobium Broga Giant (Dendrobium Bobby Messina × Dendrobium Superbiens) is a new orchid hybrid in Malaysia. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of different growth media, carbon sources and PGRs on Dendrobium Broga Giant orchid’s protocorm-like bodies (PLBs) proliferation supported with SEM and TEM analysis. The PLBs were cultured...
Article
Dendrobium Broga Giant (Dendrobium Bobby Messina × Dendrobium superbiens) is a newly introducing hybrid orchid species in Malaysia. Suitable target explants potentiality determination is very important before transformation studies. Bacterial chemotaxis and transient gusA expression were studied using explants as PLBs of Dendrobium Broga Giant to e...

The amino acid glutamate has commonly been associated with the umami or brothy taste which is classified as the fifth sensation other than sweet, sour, salty and bitter. The production of glutamate in plants is linked to the tricarboxylic acid cycle (TCA) and amino acid metabolism. In this study, the effects of down-regulating the tomato glutamate...

Article
Fruits are an important part of a healthy diet. They provide essential vitamins and minerals, and their consumption is associated with a reduced risk of heart disease and certain cancers. These important plant products can, however, be expensive to purchase, may be of disappointing quality and often have a short shelf life. A major challenge for cr...
