• Genetic engineering of osmoregulation is simply the application of the science of genetics toward osmo­ tically tolerant microbes and plants. • Recombinant DNA is regarded as just another tool along with conventional genetics to be utilized for improvement of microbes and plants.

Osmoregulation. Osmoregulation is the process of maintaining salt and water balance (osmotic balance) across membranes within the body. The fluids inside and surrounding cells are composed of water, electrolytes, and nonelectrolytes.

An electrolyte is a compound that dissociates into ions when dissolved in : Charles Molnar, Jane Gair, Molnar, Charles, Gair, Jane. Genetic Engineering. Using recombinant DNA technology to modify an organism’s DNA to achieve desirable traits is called genetic engineering.

Genetic Engineering of Osmoregulation: Impact on Plant Productivity for Food, Chemicals, and Energy. [D W Rains; R C Valentine; Alexander Hollaender] -- The plant world represents a vast renewable resource for production of food, chemicals and energy.

The utilization of this resource is frequently limited by moisture, temperature or salt stress. Among the various mechanisms, accumulation of osmotically active biomolecules is a major one.

There are certain organic metabolites of low molecular weight that are collectively known as compatible solutes, as they do not inhibit other cellular functions. These solutes include carbohydrates viz., fructans, trehalose; sugar alchohols (polyols) such as glycerol, mannitol, Author: J.

The 'state of the art' ofgenetic engineering is now at a point where microorganisms can be manipulated for osmotic tolerance. In the future genetic engineering technology may be applied for construction of hardy varieties of crop by: Part of the Basic Life Sciences book series (BLSC, volume 14) Abstract Algae and the most active organs of higher plants, the leaves, and the roots, are 85–95 percent water by by: Biotechnology is the use of artificial methods to modify the genetic material of living organisms or cells to produce novel compounds or to perform new functions.

Biotechnology has been used for improving livestock and crops since the beginning of agriculture through selective breeding. Since the discovery of the structure of DNA inand particularly since the development of tools.

In this book several specialists have analyzed and reviewed the new data published regarding fish osmoregulation. The chapters present an integrative synthesis of the different aspects of this field focusing on osmoregulation in specific environments or situations, function of osmoregulatory organs, general mechanisms and endocrine control.

Osmoregulation mechanism of drought stress and genetic engineering strategies for improving drought resistance in plants Article in Forestry Studies in China 6(2). Osmoregulation is the active control of the cellular water balance and encompasses homeostatic mechanisms crucial for life.

The osmoregulatory system in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is particularly well understood. Key to yeast osmoregulation is the production and accumulation of the compatible solute glycerol, which is partly controlled. To cope with the abiotic stress-induced osmotic problems, plants adapt by either increasing uptake of inorganic ions from the external solution, or by de novo synthesis of organic compatible solutes acting as osmolytes.

Of the osmoregulants and. Osmoregulation is the active regulation of the osmotic pressure of an organism's body fluids, detected by osmoreceptors, to maintain the homeostasis of the organism's water content; that is, it maintains the fluid balance and the concentration of electrolytes (salts in solution which in this case is represented by body fluid) to keep the body fluids from becoming too diluted or.

Water is fundamental to life and all metabolic reactions are influenced by the aqueous environment in which they occur. Osmoregulation and water balance are therefore absolutely essential topics in animal physiology.

In other words, a cell is the simplest functional unit of a life. Bacteria are unicellular, prokaryotic organisms that have some of the least complex life processes in place; however, prokaryotes such as bacteria do not contain membrane-bound vacuoles.
