About this book

Discusses and explains the major advances in the new technology of applying molecular genetic techniques of modifying carbon and nitrogen in plants.

Contents

Primary nitrogen assimilation, carbon assimilation and carbon partitioning: the photosynthetic electron transport system - efficiency and control; the regulation and control of photosynthetic carbon assimilation; modulation of sucrose metabolism;modulation of starch synthesis; molecular crosstalk and the regulation of C- and N-responsive genes; manipulation of the pathways of sucrose biosynthesis and nitrogen assimilation; manipulation amino acid biosynthesis; regulation of C/N metabolism byreversible protein phosphorylation. Compartmentation, transport and whole plant interactions: compartmentation of C/N metabolism; plasmodesmal-mediated plant communication network - implications for controlling carbon metabolism and resource allocation;nitrogen uptake and assimilation in roots and root nodules; probing the carbon and nitrogen interaction - a whole plant perspective; the role of mycorrhiza. Related problems: respiration and the alternative oxidase; manipulation of oil biosynthesis andlipid composition; resource use efficiency and crop-performance - what is the link
