      Fenech-Torres, Mario; Amorim-Silva, Vitor; Smirnoff, Nicholas; Valpuesta-Fernandez, Victoriano; Botella, Miguel A. (2018-07-18)
      Ascorbic acid (AsA, VitC) is the most abundant water-soluble antioxidant in plants and it plays a plethora of biological roles including resistance to abiotic stress. Hence, including VitC as a trait to improve in breeding ...
    • Role pf TTLs proteins in cellulose biosynthesis 

      García-Moreno, Álvaro; Amorim-Silva, Vitor; Valpuesta-Fernandez, Victoriano; Macho, Alberto; Jaillais, Yvon; [et al.] (2018-07-18)
      Abiotic stress cause detrimental yield losses in crop species. Plants are sessile organisms, so the understanding of the plant cell wall, which is the most important component that constitute the plant biomass of crop ...
    • ttl mutants are impaired in cellulose biosynthesis under osmotic stress 

      García-Moreno, Álvaro; Amorim-Silva, Vitor; Castillo-Garriga, Araceli; Valpuesta-Fernandez, Victoriano; Macho, Alberto; [et al.] (2018-07-18)
      As sessile organisms, plants require mechanisms to sense and respond to the challenging environment, that encompass both biotic and abiotic factors that results in differential development. In these conditions is essential ...
