How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
In plants, the deoxy sugar l-rhamnose is widely present as rhamnose-containing polymers in cell walls and as part of the decoration of various specialized metabolites. Here, we review the current knowledge on the distribution of rhamnose, highlighting the differences between what is known in dicotyledoneuos compared to commelinid monocotyledoneous...
Article
Solar UV-B radiation enhances constitutive and inducible plant defenses against herbivore insects. Although inducible defenses in leaves damaged by lepidotperan larvae and other chewing insects are well known, almost nothing is noted for the response of reproductive organs in response to stink bug attack. Here we measured the induction of phytohorm...

This study demonstrates that soybean cultivars respond differentially to damage in a herbivore-specific manner, and trigger responses decreasing herbivore performance. Soybean crops are affected by a great number of insect herbivores, resulting in devastating yield losses. Secondary metabolites like proteinase inhibitors and phenolic compounds are...
Article
Phenolic compounds are among the most diverse and widespread of specialized plant compounds and underly many important agronomic traits. Our comprehensive analysis of the maize genome unraveled new aspects of the genes involved in phenylpropanoid, monolignol, and flavonoid production in this important crop. Remarkably, just 19 genes accounted for 7...
Article
Solar UV-B radiation has been reported to enhance constitutive and inducible plant defenses against herbivore insects in many species. However, the induction of plant defenses depends on the phytohormone profile induced by the specific herbivore feeding guild. No study has shown the impact of soybean leaf chemical defenses induced by thrips herbivo...
Article
Solar UV-B radiation has been reported to enhance plant defenses against herbivore insects in many species. However, the mechanism and traits involved in the UV-B mediated increment of plant resistance are unknown in crops species, such as soybean. Here we studied defense-related responses in undamaged and Anticarsia gemmatalis larvae-damaged leave...
Article
Although it is well known that solar ultraviolet B (UV-B) radiation enhances plant defenses, there is less knowledge about traits that define insect resistance in field-grown soybean. Here we study the effects of solar UV-B radiation on: a) the induction of phenolic compounds and trypsin proteinase inhibitors (TPI) in soybean undamaged leaves or da...
Article
Solar UV-B radiation (280–315 nm) has a significant influence on trophic relationships in natural and managed ecosystems, affecting plant-insect interactions. We explored the effects of ambient UV-B radiation on the levels of herbivory by stink bugs (Nezara viridula and Piezodorus guildinii) in field grow soybean crops. The experiments included two...
