SEPALLATA genes are members of a subfamily of MADS-box transcription factors, and have essential roles in floral organ development and fruit ripening. In this study, the PrupeSEP1 gene was cloned from peach flesh. Its deduced amino acid sequence was very similar to that of MdMADS8 and MdMADS9 in apple and MADS-RIN-like in strawberry. During storage of melting flesh (MF) peach, the pattern of SEP1 expression was similar to that of ethylene biosynthesis and ethylene signal transduction-related gene expression (EIN2 and ETR2)...

A random copolymer, poly(methyl methacrylate-co-2-dimethylaminoethyl methacrylate) (poly(MMA-co-DMAEMA)) is shown to form nano-scale aggregates (NAs) (~20 nm) at copolymer concentrations ≥ 10 % w/w, directly from the pre-formed surfactant-stabilised latex (~120 nm) in aqueous solution. The copolymer is prepared by a conventional emulsion polymerisation. Introducing a small mole fraction of DMAEMA (~10 %) allows the copolymer hydrophilicity to be adjusted by pH and external temperature, generating NAs with tuneable sizes and defined weight-average aggregation number, as observed by dynamic-light scattering (DLS) and small-angle neutron scattering (SANS)...

For equivalent micellar volume fraction (Φ) systems containing anisotropic micelles are generally more viscous than those comprising spherical micelles. Many surfactants used in water-in- CO2 (w/c) microemulsions are fluorinated analogues of sodium bis(2-ethylhexyl) sulfosuccinate (AOT): here it is proposed that mixtures of CO2-philic surfactants with hydrotropes and co-surfactants may generate elongated micelles in w/c systems at high-pressures (e.g. 100-400 bar). A range of novel w/c microemulsions, stabilised by new custom-synthesized CO2-phillic, partially fluorinated surfactants, were formulated with hydrotropes and co-surfactant...

Brown rot on peaches and nectarines caused by Monilinia spp. results in significant economic losses in Europe. Experiments were conducted to study the effects of temperature (0-33 °C) on the temporal dynamics of decay and mycelium development and the subsequent sporulation on peaches and nectarine fruit infected by M. laxa and M. fructicola. The rates of decay and mycelium development increased with temperature from 0 °C to 25 °C for both Monilinia species. At 0 °C, decay was faster for M. laxa (0...

Natural populations of peach latent mosaic viroid (PLMVd) are complex mixtures of variants. During routine testing, TaqMan rtRT-PCR and RNA gel-blot hybridization produced discordant results with some PLMVd isolates. Analysis of the corresponding populations showed that they were exclusively composed of variants (of class II) with a structural domain different from that of the reference and many other variants (of class I) targeted by the TaqMan rtRT-PCR probe. Bioassays in peach revealed that a representative PLMVd variant of class II replicated without symptoms, generated a progeny with low nucleotide diversity, and, intriguingly, outcompeted a representative symptomatic variant of class I when co-inoculated in equimolecular amounts...

The limitations of chemical fungicides for the control of postharvest diseases have recently become more apparent. The utilization of antagonistic microorganisms is a promising alternative to that of fungicides to control postharvest decay. In previous studies, the antagonistic yeast Cryptococcus laurentii has shown excellent effects of biocontrol and great potential for practical application. Adverse conditions, such as oxidative stress, limit the practical application of antagonistic yeast. In this study, we investigated the oxidative stress tolerance of C...

The need for a specific, language-based treatment approach to aphasic impairments associated with attentional deficits is well documented. We describe language-specific attention treatment, a specific skill-based approach for aphasia that exploits increasingly complex linguistic tasks that focus attention. The program consists of eight tasks, some with multiple phases, to assess and treat lexical and sentence processing. Validation results demonstrate that these tasks load on six attentional domains: (1) executive attention; (2) attentional switching; (3) visual selective attention/processing speed; (4) sustained attention; (5) auditory-verbal working memory; and (6) auditory processing speed...

BACKGROUND: The prevailing paradigm of host-parasite evolution is that arms races lead to increasing specialisation via genetic adaptation. Insect herbivores are no exception and the majority have evolved to colonise a small number of closely related host species. Remarkably, the green peach aphid, Myzus persicae, colonises plant species across 40 families and single M. persicae clonal lineages can colonise distantly related plants. This remarkable ability makes M. persicae a highly destructive pest of many important crop species...

The complete nucleotide sequence of peach virus D (PeVD) from Prunus persica was determined. The PeVD genome consists of 6,612 nucleotides excluding the 3' poly(A) tail and contains a single open reading frame coding for a polyprotein of 227 kDa. Sequence comparisons and phylogenetic analysis revealed that PeVD is most closely related to viruses in the genus Marafivirus, family Tymoviridae. The complete nucleotide and CP amino acid sequences of PeVD were most similar (51.1-57.8% and 32.2-48.0%, respectively) to members of the genus Marafivirus, suggesting that PeVD is a new member of this genus...

Urnula sp. was isolated as an endophyte of Dicksonia antarctica and identified primarily on the basis of its ITS sequence and morphological features. The anamorphic state of the fungus appeared as a hyphomyceteous-like fungus as based on its features in culture and scanning electron microscopy examination of its spores. On potato dextrose agar (PDA), the organism makes a characteristic fragrance resembling peach pie with vanilla overtones. A GC/MS analysis done on the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) of this organism, trapped by carbotrap methodology, revealed over 150 compounds with high MS matching quality being noted for 44 of these...

Hyperhydricity is a syndrome that causes morpho-physiological malformations in tissue culture plantlets. Micro-RNAs (miRNA) are small non-coding RNAs that play important regulatory roles in plant development, stress response, and adaptation to environmental conditions. In this study, differential expression analysis indicated that miRNAs play an underlying role in the responses to the hyperhydricity syndrome in peach Prunus persica (L.) leaves. 24 known and three novel potential miRNAs were characterized in hyperhydric and non-hyperhydric transcriptome libraries...

The possibility to obtain allergenic proteins by means of total chemical synthesis would be a big step forward in the development of cures to food allergy and in the study of the mechanism of allergic reactions, because this would allow to achieve control at the molecular level over the structure of the product and to study its relationship with the allergenic activity in fine details. This is instead not possible by using allergens produced by extraction from natural sources or by recombinant DNA techniques...

BACKGROUND: The peach non-specific lipid transfer protein (nsLTP), Pru p 3, is the primary sensitizer in fruits and responsible for severe reactions in the Mediterranean area. Peach allergy is frequently associated with other allergies such as peanut. Therefore, it is important to assess how specific immunotherapy to Pru p 3 could affect both peach and peanut tolerance. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate peach and peanut desensitization and immunological changes after one year of Pru p 3 sublingual immunotherapy (SLIT) in patients with systemic allergic reactions to peach and/or peanut...

BACKGROUND: Pollen allergy may be frequently associated with fruit-vegetables: the so-called pollen food syndrome. Pru p 3 is the most relevant peach allergen. Previously, it has been reported that serum specific IgE level to Pru p 3 depends on age in a limited geographic area. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to to test the hypothesis about the differences of Pru p 3 sensitization across Italy, mainly concerning the impact of age. METHODS: The current study was retrospective and multicentre, involving 2 labs in Northern Italy (709 subjects), 1 in Genoa (1,040 subjects), and 1 in Southern Italy (2,188 subjects)...

Flavor compounds are commonly obtained from chemical synthesis or extracted from plants. These sources have disadvantages, such as racemic mixtures generation, more steps to yield the final product, low yield, and high cost, making the microbial fermentation an alternative and potential way to obtain flavor compounds. The most important lactone for flavor application is γ-decalactone, which has the aroma of peach, and can be obtained by ricinoleic acid biotransformation via yeast peroxisomal β-oxidation. The aim of this work was to use crude glycerol, a residual biodiesel industry, for the production of bioaroma from two different yeasts...

Attractants for pest monitoring and controlling can be developed based on plant volatiles. Previously, we showed that tea leafhopper (Empoasca onukii) preferred grapevine, peach plant, and tea plant odours to clean air. In this research, we formulated three blends with similar attractiveness to leafhoppers as peach, grapevine, and tea plant volatiles; these blends were composed of (Z)-3-hexenyl acetate, (E)-ocimene, (E)-4,8-dimethyl-1,3,7-nonatriene, benzaldehyde, and ethyl benzoate. Based on these five compounds, we developed two attractants, formula-P and formula-G...

Amygdalin is a major component of the seeds of Rosaceae family of plants such as apricots, peaches, cherry, nectarines, apples, plums, and so on, as well as almonds. It is used in alternative medicine for cancer prevention, alleviation of fever, cough suppression, and quenching thirst. The aim of the present study is to determine the mutagenic and recombinogenic effects of amygdalin in a test system Saccharomyces cerevisiae and to evaluate its potential antitumor effect in a yeast cell-based test and colon cancer cell lines...
