Physiologic and metabolic responses of abiotic stress in plants michael wink annual plant reviews functions and biotechnology of plant secondary metabolites
Plant secondary metabolism has multiple functions throughout the plant’s life cycle. These functions can be classified as mediators in the interaction of the plant with its environment, such as plant–insect, plant–microorganism and plant–plant interactions. Secondary metabolism also plays a role in plant reproduction, for example, in attracting pollinators and in male fertility. Secondary metabolites determine important aspects of human food quality (taste, colour and smell), and plant pigments are important for the diversity of ornamental plants and flowers. Moreover, several plant secondary metabolites are used for the production of medicines, dyes, insecticides, flavours and fragrances. Secondary metabolism is thus an interesting target for plant breeding.

Defensive plant secondary metabolites against insects michael wink annual plant reviews functions and biotechnology of plant secondary metabolites
Plants produce a broad range of secondary metabolites that are toxic to insect herbivores, either as part of their normal program of growth and development or in response to biotic stress (insect infestation). These secondary compounds that may act as signals, i.e. allelochemicals, mediating interactions between insects and plants. Secondary metabolites are present in all plants generally as mixtures that can be highly diverse. These mixtures have been shown to protect plants against insects; thus, secondary metabolite diversity has been suggested to be a resistance trait against plant consumers. Secondary metabolites are an extremely diverse group of natural products synthesized by plants. Most of secondary metabolites, such as terpenes, phenolic compounds and alkaloids are classified based on their biosynthetic origin.

Kevin Davies Annual Plant Reviews, Plant Pigments and their Manipulation michael wink annual plant reviews functions and biotechnology of plant secondary metabolites
Annual Plant Reviews, Volume 14 It is difficult to over-state the importance of plant pigments in biology. Chlorophylls are arguably the most important organic compounds on earth, as they are required for photosynthesis. Carotenoids are also necessary for the survival of both plants and mammals, through their roles in photosynthesis and nutrition, respectively. The other plant pigment groups, such as flavonoids and betalains, have important roles in both the biology of plants and the organisms with which plants interact. This book provides an overview of pigment chemistry and biology, together with an up-to-date account of the biosynthesis of pigments and the modification of their production using biotechnology. The chapters cover a wide scope of pigmentation research – from the importance of structural diversity in generating the range of colours seen in plants, through to improving human health properties of crops by increasing pigment levels in transgenic plants. The volume is directed at researchers and professionals in plant biochemistry, molecular biology and genetics.

Nicholas Talbot J. Annual Plant Reviews, Plant-Pathogen Interactions michael wink annual plant reviews functions and biotechnology of plant secondary metabolites
Annual Plant Reviews, Volume 11 Plant diseases are destructive and threaten virtually any crop grown on a commercial scale. They are kept in check by plant breeding strategies that have introgressed disease resistance genes into many important crops, and by the deployment of costly control measures, such as antibiotics and fungicides. However, the capacity for the agents of plant disease – viruses, bacteria, fungi and oomycetes – to adapt to new conditions, overcoming disease resistance and becoming resistant to pesticides, is very great. For these reasons, understanding the biology of plant diseases is essential for the development of durable control strategies. This volume provides an overview of our current knowledge of plant-pathogen interactions and the establishment of plant disease, drawing together fundamental new information on plant infection mechanisms and host responses. The role of molecular signals, gene regulation and the physiology of pathogenic organisms are emphasised, but the role of the prevailing environment in the conditioning of disease is also discussed. This is a book for researchers and professionals in plant pathology, cell biology, molecular biology and genetics.
