Grapevine is one of the most widely cultivated plant species worldwide. With the publication of the grapevine genome sequence in 2007, a new horizon in grapevine research has unfolded. Thus, we felt that a new edition of aMolecular Biology a Biotechnology of the Grapevinea could expand on all the latest scientific developments. In this edition and with the aid of 73 scientists from 15 countries, ten chapters describe new aspects of Grapevine Molecular Physiology and Biotechnology and eleven chapters have been revised and updated. This book is intended to be a reference book for researchers, scientists and biotechnological companies, who want to be updated in viticultural research, but also it can be used as a textbook for graduate and undergraduate students, who are interested in the Molecular Biology and Biotechnology of Plants with an emphasis on the Grapevine.Efforts to use grapevine protoplasts as a test system for toxicity of Eutypa lata and to grapevine fan leaf virus infection in transgenic grapevines ... The central vacuole, which can occupy more than 80% of the total plant cell volume, is separated from the surrounding cytosol by the ... In the mesocarp of fleshy fruits, the large central vacuole plays a prominent role in cell expansion, fruit size and fruit quality.
