Article
Global climate change, especially heatwaves and aridity, is a major threat to agricultural production and food security. This requires common efforts from the scientific community to find effective solutions to better understand and protect the plant's vulnerabilities to high temperatures. The current study demonstrates the potential of cellooligos...

DspA/E is a type three effector injected by the pathogenic bacterium Erwinia amylovora inside plant cells. In non-host Arabidopsis thaliana, DspA/E inhibits seed germination, root growth, de novo protein synthesis and triggers localized cell death. To better understand the mechanisms involved, we performed EMS mutagenesis on a transgenic line, 13-1...
Article
Lytic Polysaccharide MonoOxygenases display great variability towards cellulose ultrastructure while performing oxidative functionalization of the polymers. Aiming at employing AA9-LPMOs for isolation of cellulose nano-crystals (CNCs), the ratio between functionalization/crystalline degradation became a crucial parameter. Here are reported the cons...
Article
Full-text available
Lytic Polysaccharide Monooxygenases (LPMOs) are powerful redox enzymes able to oxidatively cleave recalcitrant polysaccharides. Widely conserved across biological kingdoms, LPMOs of the AA9 family are deployed by phytopathogens to deconstruct cellulose polymers. In response, plants have evolved sophisticated mechanisms to sense cell wall damage and...
Preprint
Lytic Polysaccharide Monooxygenases (LPMOs) are powerful redox enzymes able to oxidatively cleave cellulose polymers. Widely conserved across biological kingdoms, LPMOs of the AA9 family are deployed by phytopathogens during necrotrophic attack of plant cell wall. In response, plants have evolved sophisticated mechanisms to sense cell wall damage a...
Article
Full-text available
The current context of environmental and climate changes deeply influences the outcome of plant-pathogen interactions. Indeed, nowadays it is clear that abiotic stresses strongly affect biotic interactions at various levels. For instance, physiological parameters such as plant architecture and tissue organization along with primary and specialized...
Article
Lytic polysaccharide monooxygenases (LPMOs) are industrially important enzymes able to enhance the enzymatic lignocellulose saccharification in synergism with classical glycoside hydrolases. Fungal LPMOs have been classified as AA9, AA11, and AA13-16 families showing a diverse specificity for substrates such as soluble and insoluble beta-glucans, c...

Proline accumulation occurs in plants following the exposure to a wide array of stress conditions, as well as during numerous physiological and adaptive processes. Increasing evidence also supports the involvement of proline metabolism in the plant response to pathogen attack. This requires that the biosynthetic pathway is triggered by components o...
Article
Crop yield loss is significantly affected by disease. Considering that the worldwide demand for agricultural products is increasing, there is a need to pursue the development of new methods to protect crops from disease. One mechanism of plant protection is through the activation of its immune system. By exogenous application, "plant activator mole...
Article
The use of highly polluting chemicals for plant and crop protection is one of the components of the negative environmental impact of agricultural activities. In the present paper, an environmentally friendly alternative to pesticide application has been studied, based on the so-called electrochemically activated solutions (ECAS). Experiments have b...
Article
Full-text available
The majority of plant species accumulate high intracellular levels of proline to cope with hyperosmotic stress conditions. Proline synthesis from glutamate is tightly regulated at both the transcriptional and the translational levels, yet little is known about the mechanisms for post-translational regulation of the enzymatic activities involved. Th...
Article
Full-text available
While intracellular proline accumulation in response to various stress conditions has been investigated in great detail, the biochemistry and physiological relevance of proline degradation in plants is much less understood. Moreover, the second and last step in proline catabolism, the oxidation of δ(1)-pyrroline-5-carboxylic acid (P5C) to glutamate...

Question
Dear all,
I'm a beginner in using this database but I would appreciate it if you could share your experience. 
I'm analyzing several DNA sequences and I have found a lot of regulatory elements.
Could this analysis be  redundant?  How can I performed the analysis to be more conservative?
Thank in advance

Question
Dear all,
I'm looking for a protocol to extract nuclear proteins from plant cells culture. In particular I'm going to work on Arabidopsis and Rice cells.
Any suggestions?
