Researchers identify double mechanism that regulates how plants react to drought

By | Natural Sciences | No Comments

Researchers of the Institute of the Molecular and Cellular Biology of Plants (IBMCP), mixed centre of Valencia’s Polytechnic University (UPV) and the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), have identified a double mechanism, of inhibition and degradation, to regulate the response of plants to drought. The results of this research, which increases available knowledge on how plants respond to environmental stress, have been published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal.

Research by the Department of Microbiology of the University of Valencia, the Institute of Biomedicine of Valencia and the Institute of Agrochemistry and Food Technology of the CSIC has defined the initial interaction of human rotavirus P [8] (the main cause of gastroenteritis) with the recipients of the intestine. In addition, it has found that natural sugars in breast milk are identical to the virus’s receptors, which demonstrates their potential as anti-rotavirus. Read More
