The procambium specification gene Oshox1 promotes polar auxin transport capacity and reduces its sensitivity toward inhibitionDownload
The auxin-inducible homeobox gene Oshox1 of rice (Oryza sativa) is a positive regulator of procambial cell fate commitment, and its overexpression reduces the sensitivity of polar auxin transport (PAT) to the PAT inhibitor 1-N-naphthylphthalamic acid (NPA). Here, we show that wild-type rice...
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...
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...
Transcriptome and Proteome Based Survey to Identify Aluminum-Responsive Genes in Roots of Arabidopsis ThalianaDownload
Aluminum (Al)stress is a major limitation to crop productivity on acidic soils. To help understand the cellular mechanisms underlying the toxicity and resistance of plants to Al, this thesis involved a large-scale, transcriptomic and proteomic analysis of roots of Arabidopsis thaliana and reports...
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...
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...
The plant vascular system transports water and nutrients, but also regulatory molecules that function in short- and long-distance mechanisms to pattern surrounding tissues. As such, the development of the vascular system is tied to the overall patterning and development of the plant body. The...

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...
