This work examines abscission in tomato and finds that it is associated with programmed cell death and expression of the RNase LX, both of which occur on the distal side of the abscission zone (the part that falls off the plant), indicating asymmetric processes occurring during abscission. The findings are important for possible use in biotechnological control of tomato fruit abscission.

In cooperation with synchrotron Elettra in Trieste (line TwinMic BL 1.1 L) that enables to study the localisation of elements in biological tissues with the help of low energy roentgen fluorescence spectroscopy (LEXRF), we developed a method for preparation of plant samples and studied the element localisation in the aleuron of the wheat grain.

We studied the effect of TiO2 nanoparticles on Allium cepa using a modification of the conventional Allium test with nanoparticles suspended in distilled water as opposed to growth medium. Nanoparticulate TiO2 was found to have low toxic potential and the mitotic index was among the most sensitive measures of the effect of nanoTiO2.
