    Philip Morris USA, Research Center, Richmond, VA, USA
    Antioxidants, such as phenolics, tocopherols and carotenoids in tobacco leaves, are known to interfere with oxidation processes through chain-breaking reactions or through scavenging of free radicals. The induction or up-regulation of these and other...

    Philip Morris Products SA, R&D, Neuchâtel, Switzerland.
    Analytical methods based on the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) are widely used to detect, identify and quantify genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in agricultural crops, food and feed. The determination of genetic identity facilitates the...

    Potential of molecular marker analysis for assessment of genetic diversity in tobacco varieties

    ROSSI L.; BINDLER G.; PIJNENBURG H.; GADANI F.
    Philip Morris Europe, R&D, Neuchatel, Switzerland.
    The objective of the study was to investigate the genetic diversity of tobacco varieties by developing polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based procedures that can detect DNA polymorphisms in tobacco. An effective DNA extraction method is required in...

    The application of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technology to the detection, identification and quantification of genetically modified organisms (GMOs): current approaches

    GADANI F.; BINDLER G.; PIJNENBURG H.; ROSSI L.; ZUBER J.
    Philip Morris Europe, R&D, Neuchâtel, Switzerland.
    Analytical methods based on the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technology are increasingly used for the detection of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sequences associated with genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Prerequisites for GMO detection are a...
