Virus Inducible Switch
This invention describes a novel platform to control expression of specific plant genes with viruses. Background: When many plants are challenged with a viral infection, one of the primary defense mechanisms they have evolved is to deploy the use of plant RNA silencing pathways to control gene expression. Likewise, viruses have co-evolved to evade...

An Alternative Mode of RNA Interference Triggered through Feeding Synthetic RNAs that are Processed into piRNAs
This invention describes a new method of the widely-used RNA interference technique with potential clinical and research applications. Background: RNA interference is a commonly used method to knockdown or “silence” genes. This is typically done using small interfering RNA (siRNA) probes designed with specificity to bind and tag certain...

Vip3-Resistant Helicoverpa Zea
This technology is a genetically diverse strain of corn earworm that has been selected over multi-generations to be resistant to Vip3 (a Bt protein produced by transgenic crops). It is a tool used for screening/selecting candidate proteins to determine if they overcome resistance. Background: A rapidly expanding global population, coupled with limited...

Elimination of Aflatoxin via Aflatoxin-Degrading Enzyme Expression in Crops
This technology involves the expression of an aflatoxin-degrading enzyme in maize kernels. The enzyme was engineered to target the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and become expressed using an embryo-specific promoter in the transgenic maize. It can be used in combination with an RNAi suppression method, HIGS, to protect maize during pre-harvest conditions. Background: It...

Controlled Transfer of Endohyphal Symbionts among Fungal Strains
University of Arizona researchers discovered that diverse endophytic fungi were found to harbor endohyphal bacteria (EHB), which live within apparently healthy, viable fungal cells. Differences in suites of EHB between closely related fungal endophytes suggest horizontal transfer of these symbionts in nature. This relationship appears facultative for...

Mutation Impacting Locule Number in Brassica Rapa
Brassica rapa is a plant species growing in various widely cultivated forms including the turnip (a root vegetable), Napa cabbage, bomdong, bok choy, and rapini. The oil made from the seed is sometimes also called canola or colza. The invention provides mutant Brassica plants that have increased locules and seed production relative to native wild-type...
