    Robust transcriptional indicators of immune cell death revealed by spatiotemporal transcriptome analyses / Salguero Linares, Jose (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Serrano, Irene (Université de Toulouse) ; Ruiz Solaní, Nerea (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Salas Gómez, Marta (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Phukan, Ujjal Jyoti (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; González, Víctor Manuel (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Bernardo-Faura, Martí (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Valls, Marc (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Rengel, David (Université de Toulouse) ; Sánchez Coll, Núria (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica)
    Recognition of a pathogen by the plant immune system often triggers a form of regulated cell death traditionally known as the hypersensitive response (HR). This type of cell death occurs precisely at the site of pathogen recognition, and it is restricted to a few cells. [...]

    Cucumber vein yellowing virus (CVYV) is an emerging virus on cucurbits in the Mediterranean Basin, against which few resistance sources are available, particularly in melon. The melon accession PI 164323 displays complete resistance to isolate CVYV-Esp, and accession HSD 2458 presents a tolerance, i. [...]

    Our understanding of the circadian clock function in plants has been markedly assisted by studies with the model species Arabidopsis thaliana. Molecular and genetics approaches have delivered a comprehensive view of the transcriptional regulatory networks underlying the Arabidopsis circadian system. [...]

    In plants, the hypersensitive response (HR) is a programmed cell death modality that occurs upon recognition of harmful non-self. It occurs at the site of pathogen infection, thus preventing pathogens to live off plant tissue and proliferate. [...]

    Inbreeding depression can adversely affect traits related to fitness, reproduction and productive performance. Although current research suggests that inbreeding levels are generally low in most goat breeds, the impact of inbreeding depression on phenotypes of economic interest has only been investigated in a few studies based on genealogical data.
