• Applicability of the droplet vitrification method to olive somatic embryos 

      Bradaï, Fatiha; Sánchez-Romero, Carolina (2014-11-12)
      Somatic embryos of olive have been successfully cryopreserved using the droplet-vitrification method on aluminium foil strips (1) after dehydration in PVS2 for 30 min. Although acceptable recovery rates have been obtained ...
    • Heterologous expression of AtNPR1 gene in olive for increasing fungal tolerance 

      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 ...
    • Regeneration of plants from somatic embryos of Verticillium dahliae-resistant wild olive genotypes 

      Narváez, Isabel; Jiménez-Díaz, Rafael M.; Martín, Carmen; Mercado, Jose A.; Pliego-Alfaro, Fernando (2018-10-29)
      Regeneration capacity, via somatic embryogenesis, of several wild olive genotypes differing in their response to Verticillium wilt (resistant genotypes Stop Vert, Out Vert, Ac4 and Ac 18 and the susceptible Ac 15) has been ...
    • Somatic embryogenesis in explants of adult wild olive trees 

      Narváez, I.; Mercado, J.A.; Jiménez-Díaz, R.; Pliego-Alfaro, F. (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 ...
