Gene discovery and expression analysis in sugarcane leaf and culm
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2002-12)
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Sugarcane (Saccharum spp. hybrids) is a commercial crop plant capable of storing up to 20% sucrose on a fresh mass basis in the culm. Knowledge about gene expression during sugarcane growth and maturation ...
Characterization of transgenic sugarcane lines with perturbed pyrophosphate: fructose 6-phosphate 1-phosphotransferase (PFP) activity
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2009-03)
Pyrophosphate fructose-6-phosphate 1-phosphotransferase (PFP) is an important glycolytic enzyme and catalyses the reversible conversion of fructose-6-phosphate (Fr-6-P) and pyrophosphate (PPi) to fructose 1,6-bisphosphate ...
The characterization of vacuolar pyrophosphatase expression in sugarcane
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2005-03)
Vacuolar Pyrophosphatase (V-PPase) has never been studied in sugarcane before and to date nothing is known about V-PPase in sugarcane, except for the sequences of a few expressed sequence tags (ESTs). The aim of this project ...
