    Trees have a long juvenile phase before reproductive onset. This makes their breeding and studying floral development difficult. Precocious flowering using FT technology has shown promise. However, transgenic FT overexpression has significant negative pleiotropic effects. Hence, there has been interest in inducible FT expression for flower induction. Previously reported heat inducible expression of FT in...

  • Callus Cultures of Beans Infected With Virus as a Model for Testing Antiviral Compaunds

    In the work, bean callus raised from a leaves of Bean common mosaic virus infected bean plant was obtained and adapted for the testing of antiviral activity of liposomal glycan-glycolipid complexes. Ganoderma adspersum glucans and Pseudomonas spec. rhamnolipids were constituents of liposomal compaunds. It has been shown that under the long-term cultivation (up to 3 months) in the...
