We report an improved assembly (v3. 6. 1) of the melon (Cucumis melo L. ) genome and a new genome annotation (v4. 0). The optical mapping approach allowed correcting the order and the orientation of 21 previous scaffolds and permitted to correctly define the gap-size extension along the 12 pseudomolecules. [...]

Phytaspases are Asp-specific subtilisin-like plant proteases that have been likened to animal caspases with respect to their regulatory function in programmed cell death (PCD). We identified twelve putative phytaspase genes in tomato that differed widely in expression level and tissue-specific expression patterns. [...]

Functional insight on the post-translational modifier SUMO and its biochemical pathway in plants has steadily increased over the past decade. In contrast to the low number of core components that catalytically control SUMO attachment to targets, the enzymes that control deconjugation and SUMO maturation seem to have diversified in terms of both gene number and biological function.

The identification of chemical compounds that prevent and combat bacterial diseases is fundamental for crop production. Bacterial virulence inhibitors are a promising alternative to classical control treatments, because they have a low environmental impact and are less likely to generate bacterial resistance. [...]
