    University of Kentucky, Dept. of Agronomy, Lexington, KY, USA
    The complex reactions controlling the formation of tobacco-specific nitrosamines (TSNA) in the curing of tobacco have caused difficulty in developing a curing procedure to decrease nitrosamine levels in tobacco. Previous studies have shown that there...

    University of Kentucky, Dept. of Agronomy, Lexington, KY, USA
    If we are to be efficient in our attempts to modify tobaccos to improve natural disease resistance, we must understand the metabolism leading to disease resistance components formed in the plant. To this end, we have studied metabolic pathways...
