• Arginine biosynthesis and utilization in maritime pine 

      Llebrés, MT; Pascual, MB; Debille, S; Trontin, JF; Harvengt, L; [et al.] (2017-10-30)
      Vegetative propagation through somatic embryogenesis in combination with the cryopreservation of embryogenic lines is a major tool in conifer biotechnology. An important process during the maturation phase of embryogenesis ...
    • Metabolic channeling of phe for lignin biosynthesis in maritime pine 

      de la Torre, F; El-Azaz, J; Alvarez-Mena, A; Pascual, MB; Trontin, J-F; [et al.] (2017-07-14)
      Phenylalanine (Phe) is the main precursor of phenylpropanoids biosynthesis in plants. This vast family of Phe-derived compounds can represent more than 30% of captured photosynthetic carbon, playing essential roles in ...
    • Multidisciplinary teaching of Biotechnology and Omics sciences 

      Cañas, Rafael A.; de la Torre, F; Pascual, Belen M; El-Azaz, J; Cantón, Francisco R.; [et al.] (2017-10-27)
      In the last years, there was a great boom in the Omics fields that have developed as multidisciplinary sciences. They use laboratory techniques related to Biology and Chemistry but also Bioinformatics tools. However, the ...
    • PpNAC1, a main regulator of phenylalanine biosynthesis in p. Pinaster 

      Pascual, Belen M; Llebrés, Maria Teresa; Cañas, Rafael A.; Canovas-Ramos, Francisco Miguel; Avila, C (2017-07-14)
      The metabolism of phenylalanine plays a central role in the channeling of carbon from photosynthesis to the biosynthesis of phenylpropanoids duringwood formation. This crucial pathway is finely regulated primarily at ...
