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

By Susheng Gan

The medical and fiscal importance of plant senescence implies that a lot attempt has been made to appreciate the tactics concerned and to plot technique of manipulating them agriculturally. in the past few years there was enormous development during this regard, specifically within the molecular, genetic and genomic facets. Senescence has a big impression on agriculture. for instance, leaf senescence limits crop yield and biomass creation, and contributes considerably to postharvest loss in vegetable and decorative vegetation in the course of transportation, garage and on cabinets. furthermore, proteins, antioxidants and different dietary compounds are degraded in the course of senescence. Senescing tissues additionally turn into extra vulnerable to pathogen an infection, and a few of the pathogens could produce pollutants, rendering meals harmful. Mitotic senescence can also make sure sizes of leaves, end result and entire crops.

This quantity summarizes fresh progresses within the body structure, biochemistry, cellphone 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 booklet makes a speciality of post-mitotic senescence, and comprises chapters addressing the senescence of leaves, vegetation and culmination. Later chapters study the advance of assorted new biotechnologies for manipulating the senescence tactics of fruit and leaves, a few of that are forthcoming commercialization. The e-book is directed at researchers and execs in plant molecular genetics, body structure and biochemistry.
