Endo-Beta-1,3-glucanase (hemicellulase) has been proposed to function in the softening of fruit tissue. In pepper fruit, endo-Beta-1,3-glucanase expression is dramatically induced as the fruit ripens, hence we have set out to test the role of this activity in the ripening and senescence of the pepper fruit. Genetically engineered pepper plants...

Phase 2 SBIR

Topic: 1995
Budget: 01/01/95 - 12/31/95

FLAVOR IN TOMATO FRUIT IS ASSOCIATED WITH HIGH LEVELS OF BOTH SUGARS AND ACIDS. IT IS KNOWN THAT THE LEVEL OF MALIC ACID IN THE FRUIT DECLINES BY 50 PERCENT WITH FRUIT RIPENING AND THAT THIS REDUCTION IS THOUGHT TO BE MEDIATED BY A CYTOSOLIC NADP DEPENDENT MALIC ENZYME (NADP-ME). RESEARCHERS ARE ISOLATING AND CHARACTERIZING THE TOMATO NADP-ME ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 1995
Budget: 01/01/95 - 12/31/95

WE HAVE GENERATED OVER 60 TRANSGENIC TOMATO TRANSFORMATS WHICH EXPRESS NOVEL CHITINASE EITHER INTRA- OR EXTRACELLULARLY. HERE WE PLANT TO SCREEN SEEDLINGS AND FRUIT DERIVED FROM THESE PRIMARY TRANSFORMANTS FOR TOLERANCE/RESISTANCE TO A RANGE OF IMPORTANT FUNGAL PATHOGENS WHICH CAUSE SIGNIFICANT LOSSES IN THE PRODUCTION OF FRUIT. DISEASE SCREENS ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Agriculture
Topic: 1994
Budget: 01/01/94 - 12/31/94

THE PROBLEM ADDRESSED BY THIS PROPOSAL IS THE ACUTE NEED FOR A RAPID, SENSITIVE ASSAY FOR ESCHERICHIA COLI 0157:H7, AN EMERGING FOOD PATHOGEN CAPABLE OF CAUSING SEVERE ILLNESS, PERMANENT ORGAN DAMAGE, OR DEATH IN ITS VICTIMS. A PROGRAM FOR DEVELOPMENT OF AN ICE NUCLEATION GENE-TRANSDUCTION ASSAY FOR THIS ORGANISM IS DESCRIBED. SUCH AN ASSAY HAS ...

Topic: 1993
Budget: 01/01/93 - 12/31/93

THE GOAL OF THIS PROJECT IS TO ENABLE THE ISOLATION OF GENES THAT AFFECT PLANT FREEZING TOLERANCE. THE EFFORT IN PHASE I IS TO OBTAIN MUTATIONS CAUSING CONSTITUTIVE FREEZE-TOLERANCE IN A PLANT THAT IS NORMALLY INDUCIBLE FOR THIS TRAIT (ARABIDOPSIS THALIANA). TO FACILITATE THE ISOLATION OF GENES SUBSEQUENTLY, WE WILL SCREEN PLANTS EXPECTED TO HAR...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 1992
Budget: 01/01/92 - 12/31/92

THE FATTY ACID (FA) COMPOSITION OF OILSEED CROPS IS AN ECONOMICALLY IMPORTANT TRAIT AMENABLE TO MODIFICATION BY GENETIC ENGINEERING. FOR EXAMPLE, IT SHOULD BE POSSIBLE TO ENGINEER A CANOLA (RAPESEED) OIL WITH A LOWER CONTENT OF LINOLENIC ACID, AN UNDERSIRABLE COMPONENT THAT CAUSES RANCIDITY. TRANSPOSON TAGGING PROVIDES A POWERFUL GENETIC APPROAC...
