  1. 1. Modification of flavonoid content and photosynthesis by ultraviolet-B radiation. Atrazine-tolerant and -sensitive ultivars of Brassica napus

    Author : Louise Olsson; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; recovery; quercetin; photosynthesis; photoinhibition; photoacoustics; leaf anatomy; kaempferol; flavonoid; D1 protein; fluorescence; cold stress; carbon dioxide; atrazine tolerance; Brassica napus; UV-B; Physiological biophysics; Växtfysiologi;

    Abstract : Levels of ultraviolet-B (UV-B, 280-320 nm) radiation reaching the Earth´s surface increase due to stratospheric ozone depletion. In this thesis the effect of enhanced UV-B radiation was studied on the atrazine-tolerant mutant Stallion, susceptible to photoinhibition, and the atrazine-sensitive cultivar Paroll of Brassica napus (oilseed rape).

  2. 2. Role of cadmium and ultraviolet-B radiation in plants, Influence on photosynthesis and element content in two species of Brassicaceae

    Author : Helene Larsson Jönsson; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Växtekologi; Plant ecology; UV-B; plant nutrients; photosynthesis; oxygen evolution; chlorophyll fluorescence; Cd uptake; cadmium; Arabidopsis thaliana; Brassica napus; Plant biochemistry; Växtbiokemi; Botany; Botanik;

    Abstract : Plants are exposed to many different stress factors during their lifetime, often more than one factor at a time, which highlights the importance of research regarding interaction among stress factors. Cadmium and ultraviolet-B radiation (UV-B, 280-315 nm) are two potential stress factors in the environment, which have gained increased interest due to atmospheric pollution. READ MORE

  3. 3. Pollination processes - maternal and offspring performance

    Author : Kristina Holmén Bränn; Kari Lehtilä; Pia Mutikainen; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Pollination; Sinapis arvensis; Brassica napus; Raphanus raphanistrum; Succisa pratensis; Evolution of flower size; Maternal plant responses; Resource allocation; Reproductive success; Terrestrial ecology; Terrestisk ekologi; Plant Ecology; växtekologi;

    Abstract : Pollination is one of the most important factors determining the reproductive success of plants. This thesis examines processes associated to varying pollination, with focus on plant responses. The first aim was to examine the possibility and constraints for short-term evolution of flower size in Raphanus raphanistrum. READ MORE

  4. 4. Studies on the regulation of the Napin napA promoter by ABI3, bZIP and bHLH transcription factors

    Author : Nathalie Martin; Lars Rask; Ines Ezcurra; Olof Olsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Molecular biology; transcription gene regulation; plant seed maturation; seed storage protein; ABA; ABI3; bZIP; bHLH; Brassica napus; Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : The B3-domain transcription factor ABI3 is a major regulator of gene expression of seed maturation during Arabidopsis embryogenesis. The napA gene encodes for a Brassica napus 2S storage protein specifically expressed in the embryo during the early and mid-maturation phase (MAT program). READ MORE

  5. 5. Interactions of fungal pathogens and antagonistic bacteria in the rhizosphere of Brassica napus

    Author : Konstantia Gkarmiri; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []

    Abstract : The rhizosphere is an active interface where plants and microorganisms (pathogenic, beneficial and neutral) establish a complex and varied molecular dialogue, however knowledge of the functional mechanisms mediating interactions is still limited. Plants invest a significant proportion of their photosynthetically fixed carbon in maintaining the rhizosphere microbiome via root exudation and in return beneficial microbes provide profitable functions to the plant.
