Annual Plant Reviews, Senescence Processes in Plants: Volume by Susheng Gan

By Susheng Gan

The medical and monetary importance of plant senescence signifies that a lot attempt has been made to appreciate the techniques concerned and to plot technique of manipulating them agriculturally. in past times few years there was massive growth during this regard, specifically within the molecular, genetic and genomic points. Senescence has an important influence on agriculture. for instance, leaf senescence limits crop yield and biomass construction, and contributes considerably to postharvest loss in vegetable and decorative vegetation in the course of transportation, garage and on cabinets. moreover, proteins, antioxidants and different dietary compounds are degraded in the course of senescence. Senescing tissues additionally develop into extra vulnerable to pathogen an infection, and a few of the pathogens could produce pollutants, rendering foodstuff detrimental. Mitotic senescence can also ascertain sizes of leaves, end result and entire crops.

This quantity summarizes contemporary progresses within the body structure, biochemistry, mobilephone biology, molecular biology, genomics, proteomics, and biotechnology of plant senescence. starting with a bankruptcy on senescence-related terminology and our present wisdom of mitotic senescence in vegetation (a much less well-studied area), the ebook specializes in post-mitotic senescence, and comprises chapters addressing the senescence of leaves, vegetation and culmination. Later chapters learn the improvement of varied new biotechnologies for manipulating the senescence procedures of fruit and leaves, a few of that are coming near near commercialization. The e-book is directed at researchers and execs in plant molecular genetics, body structure and biochemistry.
