Universita della Calabria, Dipartimento di Ecologia, Via ponte P Bucci, Cubo 6B, I 87036, Arcavacata di Rende, CS, Italia
Ann Bot 100:261-70. 2007..Relative expression levels of three sucrose metabolism/transport-related genes were also investigated. The aim was to determine the physiological basis of leaf morphology in this mutant, by investigating the modulatory role of sucrose...
- Expression pattern of a type-2 metallothionein gene in a wild population of the psammophyte Silene nicaeensisRadiana Cozza
Department of Ecology, University of Calabria, 87030 Arcavacata di Rende Cs, Italy
Protoplasma 250:381-9. 2013..Moreover, an increase of SnMT2 was observed in the root of plants collected from area with higher MPI. The putative role of SnMT2 in metal tolerance is discussed...

Department DiBEST, University of Calabria, Ponte P Bucci, Arcavacata di Rende, 87036 Cosenza, Italy
ScientificWorldJournal 2014:974086. 2014..The obtained results suggest that the selected genes, as markers of the induction phase, could be very useful for setting up efficient culture conditions along the rooting process, thus increasing micropropagation efficiency. ..
