Herbicide Affects on the Chlorophyll Pathway This animation illustrates how herbicides affect the chlorophyll pathway and ultimately cause lipid peroxidation.
Herbicide Competition This animation shows how herbicides compete with PEP to alter the function of an enzyme.
Herbicide Metabolism: Conjugation General and specific examples of major Phase II reactions showing conjugation of herbicides with glutathione, sugars, or amino acids are illustrated in this animation.
Herbicide Metabolism: Hydrolysis General and specific examples of major hydrolytic Phase I reactions are shown in this animation.
Herbicide Metabolism: Overall This animation follows the metabolism of a herbicide in a plant cell as its structure is changed through Phase I, II, and III reactions.
Herbicide Metabolism: Oxidation General and specific examples of major oxidative Phase I reactions are shown in this animation.
Herbicide Metabolism: Reduction General and specific examples of major reductive Phase I reactions are shown in this animation.
Herbicide Metabolism: Secondary Conjugation General and specific examples of Phase III reactions showing secondary conjugation of sugar conjugates with malonic acid.
Herbicide Metabolism: Vacuolar Sequestration and Insoluble Residues General and specific examples of Phase III reactions involving herbicide metabolite transport into vacuoles or incorporation into cell walls.
Herbicide Resistance Illustrates how selection for herbicide resistance occurs.
Herbicide Uptake by Leaves and Cells This animation describes how herbicides are taken up by leaves and illustrates how physico-chemical characteristics alter their movement across cuticles. Passive and active mechanisms of herbicide absorption across plant membranes into cells are shown as well.
Herbicide Uptake by Roots This animation shows how herbicides are taken up by roots and illustrates the path an herbicide takes across the root to reach the vascular system of the plant.
Lipid Biosynthesis This animation shows the process of lipid biosynthesis. It focuses on the biotin carrier protein.
Lipid Peroxidation Shows the process of lipid peroxidation and the resulting membrane destruction.
Overview of Crop Genetic Engineering A general look at the process of crop genetic engineering.
This is the first of a series of seven animations that detail the process of crop genetic engineering. The six lessons after this are DNA and DNA Extraction, Gene Cloning, Gene Regions, Gene Modification, Gene Gun, and Backcross Breeding.
Relationship Between Herbicide Effectiveness and Resistance Development Discusses the relationship between herbicide effectiveness and resistance development.
The Role of Acetolactate Synthesis (ALS) in Branched Chain Amino Acid Biosynthesis
Transpiration This animation details how water moves through plants and how various factors affect this movement.
Water movement through roots This animation follows the movement of a water molecule from the soil into a root where it encounters several paths of transport until it reaches the xylem.
