      Pliego, Clara; Jiménez-Díaz, Rafael M.; Trapero-Casas, Jose L.; López-Herrera, Carlos; Arjona-López, Jose M.; [et al.] (2018-10-29)
      The NPR1 gene encodes a key component of SAR signaling mediated by salicylic acid (SA). After a pathogen infection, the accumulation of SA releases NPR1 monomers in the cytosol that are translocated to the nucleus, activating ...
    • Somatic embryogenesis in explants of adult wild olive trees 

      Narváez, I.; Mercado, J.A.; Jiménez-Díaz, R.; Pliego-Alfaro, Fernando (2016-03-11)
      In this investigation, somatic embryogenesis in explants of adult wild olive trees, using the protocol developed by Mazri et al. (2013, Sci. Hort. 159: 88-95), was induced. Four genotypes differring in the level of resistance ...
