Phosphate-induced-1 gene from Eucalyptus (EgPHI-1) enhances osmotic stress tolerance in transgenic tobacco

A. O. Sousa, Assis, E. T. C. M., Pirovani, C. P., Alvim, F. C., and Costa, M. G. C., Phosphate-induced-1 gene from Eucalyptus (EgPHI-1) enhances osmotic stress tolerance in transgenic tobacco, vol. 13, pp. 1579-1588, 2014.

Environmental stresses such as drought, freezing, and high salinity induce osmotic stress in plant cells. The plant response to osmotic stress involves a number of physiological and developmental changes, which are made possible, in part, by the modulation of the expression of specific genes.

Evaluation of genotoxic and cytotoxic effects of antileishmanial extract from Julocroton triqueter (Euphorbiaceae)

V. R. Moreira, Dias, A. C. S., Martins, A. R. P., Lima, M. I. S., Serra, I. C. P. B., Ribeiro, M. N. S., Nascimento, F. R. F., and Pereira, S. R. F., Evaluation of genotoxic and cytotoxic effects of antileishmanial extract from Julocroton triqueter (Euphorbiaceae), vol. 12, pp. 1132-1142, 2013.

Julocroton triqueter extracts have antileishmanial activity; however, the effect on genetic stability has not been studied. We evaluated genotoxic and cell death induction potential (in vitro and in vivo) of J. triqueter var. triqueter hydroalcoholic extracts, as well as their antigenotoxic potential in vivo. The in vitro genotoxic studies were performed using human leukocytes at four different concentrations.
