A 10 kDa acyl-CoA binding protein (ACBP) from Brassica napus enhances acyl exchange between acyl-CoA and phosphatidylcholineDownload
The gene encoding a 10-kDa acyl-CoA-binding protein (ACBP) from Brassica napus wasover-expressed in developing seeds of Arabidopsis thaliana. Biochemical analysis of T2andT3A. thaliana seeds revealed a signiﬁcant increase in polyunsaturated fatty acids (FAs)(18:2cisD9,12and 18:3cisD9,12,15) at...
Most multicellular organisms form tissue networks for transport function. What controls the formation of tissue networks is thus a central question in biology. In animals, the formation of these networks often involves extensive cell movements—movements that are instead prevented in plants by a...
In most multicellular organisms, signals and nutrients are transported throughout the body by a vascular system. For normal development and optimal function, no area of the body should thus be devoid of vessels. Therefore, the growth of tissues and their vascularization must be tightly...

Exploring the role of the thioredoxin system, peroxiredoxins and glutaredoxins in aluminum and cadmium tolerance in yeast and Arabidopsis thalianaDownload
Aluminum (Al) and cadmium (Cd) are non-redox active metal ions of agricultural importance. Both are able to induce oxidative damage as a mechanism of toxicity. To increase our understanding of the mechanisms of Al and Cd toxicity and tolerance in plants, the potential role of antioxidant enzymes...
Expression and purification of recombinant forms of two Arabidopsis thaliana PR-10 homologues (MLP423 and Bet v 1)Download
Pathogenesis related 10 (PR-10) proteins have important roles in mediating plant abiotic and biotic stress tolerance. Most of the members of this family possess ribonuclease activity. The homologues of PR-10 (ABR17) protein, MLP423 and Bet v 1, may have similar biological and physiological...
DOMAIN OF UNKNOWN FUNCTION 642, (DUF642), is an uncharacterized protein family in the Pfam database, a large collection of protein families. In Arabidopsis thaliana there are 10 proteins that contain DUF642 domains. DUF642 appears to be specific to plants and is present in gymnosperms, monocots...
Abstract In silico analysis showed that Arabidopsis thaliana gene AT5G09530 encodes a uniquely repetitive, proline-enriched protein that is conserved across species, and is likely secreted to the cell wall. Based on its most common amino acid repeat motif, I named the gene PELPK1 and its...
The distribution of amino acids (AAs) in plants is a complex process that involves 67 amino acid transporters (AATs) in Arabidopsis, many of which have yet to be characterized. The L-type Amino acid Transporter (LAT) family, which in Arabidopsis contains five members, remained uncharacterized in...
Early flowering is an important trait influencing grain yield and quality in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) in short-season cropping regions. However, due to large and complex genomes of these species, direct identification of flowering genes and their molecular...
