      Ancín Rípodas, María Upna Orcid; Sanz Barrio, Ruth Upna; Santamaría, Eva; Fernández San Millán, Alicia Upna; Larraya Reta, Luis María Upna Orcid; Veramendi Charola, Jon Upna Orcid; Farrán Blanch, Inmaculada Upna Orcid (MDPI, 2020)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Human cardiotrophin 1 (CT1), a cytokine with excellent therapeutic potential, was previously expressed in tobacco chloroplasts. However, the growth conditions required to reach the highest expression levels resulted in an ...
    • Increased bioethanol production from commercial tobacco cultivars overexpressing thioredoxin f grown under field conditions 

      Farrán Blanch, Inmaculada Upna Orcid; Fernández San Millán, Alicia Upna; Ancín Rípodas, María Upna Orcid; Larraya Reta, Luis María Upna Orcid; Veramendi Charola, Jon Upna Orcid (Springer, 2014)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Bioethanol is mainly produced from food crops such as sugar cane and maize while it has been held partly responsible for the rise of food commodity prices. Tobacco, integrated in biorefinery facilities for the extraction ...
    • NTRC and thioredoxin f overexpression differentially induces starch accumulation in tobacco leaves 

      Ancín Rípodas, María Upna Orcid; Larraya Reta, Luis María Upna Orcid; Fernández San Millán, Alicia Upna; Veramendi Charola, Jon Upna Orcid; Burch Smith, Tessa; Farrán Blanch, Inmaculada Upna Orcid (MDPI, 2019)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Thioredoxin (Trx) f and NADPH-dependent Trx reductase C (NTRC) have both been proposed as major redox regulators of starch metabolism in chloroplasts. However, little is known regarding the specific role of each protein ...
    • Overexpression of plastidial thioredoxin f leads to enhanced starch accumulation in tobacco leaves 

      Sanz Barrio, Ruth Upna; Corral-Martínez, Patricia; Ancín Rípodas, María Upna Orcid; Seguí-Simarro, José M.; Farrán Blanch, Inmaculada Upna Orcid (Wiley, 2013)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Starch, the most abundant storage carbohydrate in plants, has been a major feedstock for first‐generation biofuels. Growing fuel demands require, however, that the starch yields of energy crops be improved. Leaf starch is ...
    • Overexpression of thioredoxin m in tobacco chloroplasts inhibits the protein kinase STN7 and alters photosynthetic performance 

      Ancín Rípodas, María Upna Orcid; Fernández San Millán, Alicia Upna; Larraya Reta, Luis María Upna Orcid; Morales Iribas, Fermín; Veramendi Charola, Jon Upna Orcid; Aranjuelo Michelena, Iker; Farrán Blanch, Inmaculada Upna Orcid (Oxford University Press, 2019)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      The activity of the protein kinase STN7, involved in phosphorylation of the light-harvesting complex II (LHCII) proteins, has been reported as being co-operatively regulated by the redox state of the plastoquinone pool ...
    • Papel de las tiorredoxinas plastidiales en la regulación del metabolismo del cloroplasto 

      Ancín Rípodas, María Upna Orcid (2019)   Tesis doctoral / Doktoretza tesia  OpenAccess
      Carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) are two essential nutrients required for plant growth and development. The cellular metabolism of both elements is tightly coordinated and subjected to a complex regulation. In this regard, the ...
    • Photosynthetic metabolism under stressful growth conditions as a bases for crop breeding and yield improvement 

      Morales Iribas, Fermín; Ancín Rípodas, María Upna Orcid; Fakhet, Dorra; González Torralba, Jon Upna Orcid; Gámez Guzmán, Angie Lorena; Seminario Huárriz, Amaia Upna; Soba Hidalgo, David Upna; Ben Mariem, Sinda; Garriga, Miguel; Aranjuelo Michelena, Iker (MDPI, 2020)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Increased periods of water shortage and higher temperatures, together with a reduction in nutrient availability, have been proposed as major factors that negatively impact plant development. Photosynthetic CO2 assimilation ...
    • Physiological performance of transplastomic tobacco plants overexpressing aquaporin AQP1 in chloroplast membranes 

      Fernández San Millán, Alicia Upna; Aranjuelo Michelena, Iker; Ancín Rípodas, María Upna Orcid; Larraya Reta, Luis María Upna Orcid; Farrán Blanch, Inmaculada Upna Orcid; Veramendi Charola, Jon Upna Orcid (Oxford University Press, 2018)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      The leaf mesophyll CO2 conductance and the concentration of CO2 within the chloroplast are major factors affecting photosynthetic performance. Previous studies have shown that the aquaporin NtAQP1 (which localizes to the ...
    • Plant growth-promoting traits of yeasts isolated from Spanish vineyards: benefits for seedling development 

      Fernández San Millán, Alicia Upna; Farrán Blanch, Inmaculada Upna Orcid; Larraya Reta, Luis María Upna Orcid; Ancín Rípodas, María Upna Orcid; Arregui Odériz, Luis Miguel; Veramendi Charola, Jon Upna Orcid (Elsevier, 2020)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      It is known that some microorganisms can enhance plant development. However, the use of yeasts as growth-promoting agents has been poorly investigated. The aim of this study was the characterisation of a collection of 69 ...
