Associations of Gossypium with chemical compounds

  • In Pima cotton (Gossypium barbadense L.), a crop that is bred for irrigated production in very hot environments, stomatal conductance varies genetically over a wide range and has increased with each release of new higher-yielding cultivars [18].
  • After the complete deglycosylation of cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) walls, trypsinization solubilized 80% of the Hyp [19].
  • The first step in the conversion of the isoprenoid intermediate, farnesyl diphosphate (FDP), to sesquiterpene phytoalexins in cotton (Gossypium barbadense) plants is catalyzed by delta-cadinene (CDN) synthase [20].
  • In cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) the enzyme (+)-delta-cadinene synthase (CDNS) catalyzes the first committed step in the biosynthesis of cadinane-type sesquiterpenes, such as gossypol, that provide constitutive and inducible protection against pests and diseases [21].
  • Developing cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) fibers, cultured in vitro with their associated ovules, were used to compare the effects of two herbicides that inhibit cellulose synthesis: 2,6-dichlorobenzonitrile (DCB) and an experimental thiatriazine-based herbicide, CGA 325'615 [22].

Gene context of Gossypium

  • A putative plant homolog of the yeast beta-1,3-glucan synthase subunit FKS1 from cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) fibers [23].
  • In the present report, we have identified two cDNAs derived from cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) boll abscission zone that encode a novel enzymatic form of Lys catabolism, i.e. a catabolic monofunctional LKR [24].
  • We isolated several WRKY cDNAs from Gossypium arboreum [25].
  • Isolation and characterization of a cDNA encoding ribosomal protein S16 from cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.) [26].
  • We have isolated a cDNA (GhWBC1) from cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) that encodes an ATP-binding cassette transporter of the WBC (white/brown complex) subfamily [27].
