My Tobacco Growing Made Easy Review

Highly Recommended

It is pricier than all the other ebooks out there, but it is produced by a true expert and is full of proven practical tips.

My opinion on this e-book is, if you do not have this e-book in your collection, your collection is incomplete. I have no regrets for purchasing this.

Methodologies for PMP Production

An interesting study on the different measures employed for enhancement of protein expression is for the Nef protein, a conserved HIV accessory protein implicated in high HIV viral loads. In initial experiments, full-length cytosolic localized Nef was produced at only low levels in tobacco plants. Expression of a cytochrome b5-Nef fusion protein, which results in the protein being anchored in the ER membrane enhanced protein production threefold, although targeting Nef to the ER lumen (by means of a KDEL signal peptide) caused Nef to be degraded. However, fusion of Nef to zeolin, a maize ER located protein that normally forms protein bodies, resulted in recombinant protein at a level of 1.5 of total leaf protein. The highest levels of recombinant Nef were found when the Nef gene was transformed into the chloroplast genome. The level of recombinant proteins in such plants was reported as being up to 40 of the total leaf protein 74 .

Bacterial Genes Involved in Phytoremediation of Explosives

TNT is one of the most toxic explosives known to man, affecting plants, animals and most microorganisms. Enterobacter cloacae PB2, a Gram-negative bacterium, is able to utilize TNT as a sole source of nitrogen (Binks et al. 1996). The nsfl gene, isolated from E. cloacae, encodes the enzyme nitroreductase (NR), which is responsible for the reduction of the nitro groups of TNT (Fig. 17.2), producing hydroxylamino- and amino-dinitrotoluenes (French et al. 1998). Hannink et al. (2001) transferred the bacterial nsfl gene into tobacco via Agrobacterium-mediated gene transformation. Transgenic tobacco plants expressing the bacterial NR enzyme tolerated TNT concentrations up to 0.5 mM, which is the solubility limit of TNT in aqueous solution. In a different study, tobacco plants were transformed with the E. cloacae onr gene, which encodes the enzyme pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETN)

Augmenting Phytoremedial Success

Another means of enhancing the phytoremediation of certain organic pollutants involves genetic engineering three specific examples will highlight some of the rather elegant work being done on this topic. The first example builds on the fact that certain bacteria are known to have pathways that encode for enzymes that are able to degrade explosive compounds. In the interest of improving plant degradation of these recalcitrant compounds, the logical next step was to transfer these genes into plants and determine whether this would allow for a decrease in toxicity and increase in degradation of these compounds by the plants. The first of this work came out of the Bruce Laboratory at the University of Cambridge and later the University of York, and showed that tobacco plants expressing an enzyme from Enterobacter cloacae PB2, pentaerythritol tetranitrate reductase, both decreased toxicity and increased degradation of glycerol trinitrate and decreased toxicity from TNT (French et al....

Transgenic Plants for Remediation of Phenolic Compounds

Basically, transgenic technology has focused in two principal strategies to improve pollutants removal (1) the manipulation of phase I of metabolic activity to enlarge in planta degradation rates, or to impart novel metabolic activity, and (2) the enhanced secretion of reactive enzymes from roots leading to accelerate ex planta degradation of organic contaminants (James and Strand, 2009). Although many investigations that have pursued the increase of in planta degradation rates could be assayed in phenol phytoremediation, the principal strategy applied with this class of contaminant has been the ex planta degradation. Probably, to avoid the potential accumulation of toxic metabolites due to the incomplete phenol metabolizing that occurs in plants. In the first case, since cytochrome P450-mediated oxidation reactions are the most important in phase I of in planta transformations, overexpression of many P450 proteins have been largely applied to enhance phytoremediation of organic...

Phytoremediation of Toxins

Phytovolatilization involves the uptake of contaminants from polluted soil and their transformation into volatile compounds and their extraction into the atmosphere by transpiration. This technique is relatively less useful for removal of heavy metals as the pollutant must (i) be taken up by plants through roots, (ii) pass through the xylem to the leaves (iii) be converted into some volatilable compounds, and (iv) volatilize to the atmosphere (Mueller et al. 1999). Despite these limitations, this technique has been reported to be useful for the removal of mercury from the polluted soils by transgenic tobacco plants carrying bacterial mercury detoxification genes merA and merB (Rugh et al. 1996, 1998 Bizily et al. 1999, 2000). The genes (merA) encodes the enzyme mercuric ion reductase that reduces ionic mercury (Hg+) to the less toxic volatile Hg(0) using NADPH reducing equivalents. In this process, the mercuric ion is transformed into methylmercury (CH3Hg+) and phenylmercuric acetate...

Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C

Reduced form (AsA). (90 of the ascorbate pool) and its intracellular concentration ranges from 20 mM in the cytosol to 300 mM in the chloroplast (Noctor and Foyer 1998). The synthesis of ascorbate takes place in mitochondria and is transported to other cell components through a proton-electrochemical gradient or through facilitated diffusion (Horemans et al. 2000). AsA has effects on different physiological processes including growth regulation, differentiation and metabolism of plants. The basic role of AsA is to protect plants from the deleterious effects of H2O2 and other toxic derivatives of oxygen. AsA acts essentially as a reductant and it scavenges many types of free radicals. In the ascorbate-glutathione cycle, APX utilizes ascorbic acid and reduces H2O2 to water and generates monodehydroascor-bate (MDA). MDA can also be reduced directly to AsA. The electron donor is usually NADPH and catalyzed by monodehydroascorbate reductase (MDAR). AsA can directly scavenge *O2, O2 and *OH...

Mutated ALS genes as plastid sustainable markers

Tobacco Metabolism

The chloroplast transformation vectors pLD201- mALS (Figure 7A), possessing the aadA and mALS (transit peptide truncated) genes inserted between tobacco sequences rbcL for the large subunit of ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase oxygensae and accD for homologous recombination, were introduced by particle bombardment (Figure 7A). The integration of mALS into the chloroplast genome in regenerated tobacco plants was confirmed by PCR using the 5 primer sets shown in Figure 7A. Tobacco chloroplast transformation was performed using pLD-201-mALS harboring G121A, A122V, P197S, P197S S653I or W574L S653I. G121A in Arabidopsis ALS corresponds to G95A in rice (Okuzaki et al., 2007). The resultant transplastomic plants were maintained on hormone-free Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium (Figure 7B). It is concluded that the chloroplast genome in these transgenic plants were almost transplastomic (Figure 7C).

Preventing Establishment By Transgenic Mitigation

Dwarfing would be disadvantageous to the rare weeds introgressing the TM construct, as they could no longer compete, but is desirable in many crops, preventing lodging and producing less stem with more leaves. The dwarf and herbicide resistant TM transgenic hybrid tobacco plants (simulating a TM introgressed hybrid) were more reproductive than the wild type when cultivated alone (without herbicide). They formed many more flowers than the wild type when cultivated by themselves, which is indicative of a higher harvest index. Conversely, the TM transgenics were weak competitors and highly unfit when co-cultivated with the wild type in ecological simulation of competition. The inability to achieve flowering on the TM plants in the competitive situation resulted in zero reproductive fitness of the TM plants grown in an equal mixture with the wild type at typical field spacing of plants resulting from seed rain of volunteer weeds 23 . 33 Tian, JL Shen, RJ and He, YK (2002) Sequence...

Plant Health Effects

The formation of more of the plant's own substances (see section 4.7.1 pathogenesis-related proteins) associated with its own defense mechanism against fungal diseases could explain the outstanding growth and health of tobacco plants treated with imidacloprid in the nursery box prior to transplanting into soil heavily infested with Phytophthora nicotianae. Initial evidence for such an effect by the induction of salicylate-associated plant defense responses has been recently published for Arabidopsis thaliana. It was shown that the neonicotinoids, imidacloprid and clothianidin, were similar to the phyto-hormone, salicylic acid, in inducing systemic acquired resistance in plants.106

Viruses and Bacteria

The use of genetic engineering techniques to get plants that produced protective viruses was reported in 1996. The full genome of the virus that attacks the larvae of the cotton bollworm and the tobacco budworm was inserted into the DNA of tobacco plants, causing the plants also to produce viruses when they grow. The viruses expressed by the plants protected them from attack by the cotton bollworm, while those without the viral genome were not protected. Concerns about the possible spread of the viral genome to other plants will have to be addressed before this approach can be field-tested.


Insect hormones regulate growth and maturation from the larva to the adult. The juvenile hormone controls the development of the immature larva through successive growth stages. If, however, it remains present during the metamorphosis of the larva to the adult, a deformed larva results or the adult that is formed soon dies. The molting hormone, ecdysone, is required for the differentiation to the adult. If the immature larva is treated with the molting hormone, it passes through its life cycle at a rapid rate and dies prematurely. Insect growth and development could be controlled if these hormones, or compounds with similar biological activity, could be applied at critical stages in the development of the larva to the adult. For example, compounds have been developed that bind to ecdysone receptors and accelerate the growth of the larvae of the tobacco hornworm, an insect that eats tobacco plants.
