    Integrated measures for bio-control of tobacco bacterial wilt and the effect on soil microorganisms

    LIU Yanxia; LI Xiang
    Guizhou Academy of Tobacco Science of CNTC, Guiyang, Guizhou, P.R. China
    Tobacco bacterial wilt is one of the most serious problems in southwest China. Single treatment approaches are not normally effective and so developing efficient integrated measures for biocontrol of tobacco bacterial wilt is very critical. In this...

    Lowering TSNAs through nitrite reductase activity

    DAVENPORT S.E.; FORSYTH K.; TULLY L.; LISTER R.; LE LAY P.; MAUNDERS M.; SANCHEZ-TAMBURRINO J.P.
    Advanced Technologies Ltd., Cambridge, UK (holding of British American Tobacco Ltd.)
    Tobacco specific nitrosamines (TSNAs) are compounds in tobacco that have been shown to be carcinogenic. TSNAs are formed by the nitrosation of tobacco alkaloids with the main nitrosating agent believed to be nitrite. High levels of nitrate...

    Molecular characterisation of different transgene events using cured tobacco leaf samples

    WAN Xiuqing; TUERCK J.; DAVENPORT S.; COLE J.; MAUNDERS M.
    Advanced Technologies Ltd., Cambridge, UK
    When a sample is found to be positive during routine GM tobacco (GMT) testing, a PCR analysis for other specific genes used in GM tobacco, such as TMV-CP, CMV-CP, Bt-cryIA(C), will usually be carried out. Often it is not possible to distinguish...
