Naturally Derived Inhibitors of Fungal Toxin Production

­ ToxBlox: NATURE-DERIVED COMPOUNDS THAT inhibit aflatoxin AND DON CONTAMINATION iNTRODUCTION Nothing ruins a crop of corn quite like the aflatoxin produced by fungi, such as Aspergillus parasiticus. This toxin degrades the food and makes consumption dangerous, especially in children and pets. If crops are found to be contaminated with an...

Genetic Engineering of Oils In Vegetable (Non-Seed) Tissues By Diverting Carbon From Starch

INTRODUCTIONTriacylglycerol (TAG) is an ester that is derived from three fatty acids and glycerol. Triglycerides are the main constituents vegetable oil. Generally, in an oil crop species, TAG is produced in seeds, and this TAG can be harvested for various uses. TAG from plant oils are used as feedstocks for biofuels, food and industrial chemicals....

Stevia Variety '12-05-144'

Executive SummaryMSU researchers have created novel Stevia varieties that produce a higher concentration of the steviol glycosides rebaudioside D and rebaudioside M than other varieties available on the market. Rebaudioside A and stevioside are currently the most abundant and most widely used compounds in the stevia-derived sweetener market. However,...

Transcription factors to improve plant resistance to insects

Executive SummaryAs sessile organisms, plants must be able to adapt swiftly to biotic and environmental stimuli, and often do this through transcriptional reprogramming. Upon wounding by a ravenous insect, for instance, jasmonic acid (JA) increases in concentration within a cell and interacts with members of the JAZ family of repressor proteins. Ultimately,...

Method for Improved Production of Terpenoids Using Co-Engineered Lipid Droplets and Anchoring of Terpene Biosynthetic Enzymes on Their Surface

Executive SummaryThis technology addresses one of the main hurdles of plant production and extraction of terpenoids by capturing desired terpenes in lipid droplets in plant cells. The lipid droplets are readily extracted using standard processes used in the vegetable oil and biodiesel industries, and the high-value terpenes can be easily separated...

Method for Production of Novel Diterpene Scaffolds

Executive SummaryMany insecticides currently in use are problematic due to persistence in the environment and off target effects including accumulation in apex predator species. Therefore effective crop-protecting agents that are naturally sourced and that overcome some of these side effects are under increasing demand. This technology identifies biosynthetic...
