Illuminating the cells: transient transformation of citrus to study gene functions and organelle activities related to fruit quality

Although multiple microscopic techniques have been applied to horticultural research, few studies of individual organelles in living fruit cells have been reported to date. In this paper, we established an efficient system for the transient transformation of citrus fruits using an Agrobacterium-mediated method. Kumquat (Fortunella crassifolia Swingle) was used; it exhibits higher transformation efficiency than all citrus fruits that have been tested and a prolonged-expression window. Fruits were transformed with fluorescent reporters, and confocal microscopy and live-cell imaging were used to study their localization and dynamics. Moreover, various pH sensors targeting different subcellular compartments were expressed, and the local pH environments in cells from different plant tissues were compared. The results indicated that vacuoles are most likely the main organelles that contribute to the low pH of citrus fruits. In summary, our method is effective for studying various membrane trafficking events, protein localization, and cell physiology in fruit and can provide new insight into fruit biology research.

Delicious jam recipes to preserve fresh fruit flavors

We once took for granted the sweet confection we spread across toast in our morning meals, and for most of us, knowledge of jams and jellies didn't go beyond what was at the local grocery store. Then last year, when the coronavirus stuck us at home for months on end and brought shortages of some foods at grocery stores, many people rediscovered the pleasures of home cooking and canning. Jams and jellies are easy to make, as well as a good way to hold on to flavors from one season into the next.

Color of the Month: Maple Glaze

The beginning of each day starts with a good breakfast whether it be a cup of coffee, a bowl of cereal or eggs and toast done just the way you like.
