  • Patent number: 9538759
    Abstract: Plant seeds, seedlings, or developing plants are treated with aqueous, dry, or appropriately solvated chemical formulations composed of nucleotides or nucleosides buffered with an effective amount of non-toxic biologically compatible agents, simultaneously with an antioxidant and lipoxygenase enzyme inhibitor. The purpose is to improve or optimize seed germination rate, seedling vigor, and ultimately plant growth characteristics and yield performance. In the preferred embodiment, seeds or other plant tissues are treated with adenosine monophosphate buffered with an excess amount of phosphoric acid salts at about pH 7.0 as described in U.S. Pat. No. 4,209,316. The improvement described in this application comprises the simultaneous addition of a similar quantity of propyl gallate to the adenosine monophosphate maintaining pH around 7.0 or below.

  • Publication number: 20140123342
    Abstract: The role of extracellular nucleotides and apyrase enzymes in the guard cells that border stomata in regulating stomatal aperture and the plant's resistance to drought and pathogens is disclosed herein. Expression of apyrases APY1 and APY2, in guard cell protoplasts is strongly correlated with cell growth, cell secretory activity and with conditions that favor stomatal opening. Both short-term inhibition of ectoapyrase activity and long-term suppression of APY1 and APY2 transcript levels significantly disrupt normal stomatal behavior in light. Furthermore, two punnoceptor inhibitors in mammals, pyridoxalphosphate-6-azo-phenyl-2?,4?-disulphonic acid (PPADS) and Reactive Blue 2, block ATPS- and ADP?S-induced opening and closing, and also partially block the ability of abscisic acid (ABA) to induce stomatal closure, and light-induced stomatal opening.
