How multicellular organisms activate gene expression in the correct cells at the correct time is a central question in biology. In animals, in which this question has been investigated extensively, broadly expressed transcription factors activate target gene expression in narrow domains by a...
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...
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...
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...
Plant acyl-CoA:lysophosphatidylcholine acyltransferases (LPCATs) have different specificities in their forward and reverse reactionsDownload
Heinz, Ernst, Zhou, Xue-Rong, Banas, Antoni, Green, Allan, Jasieniecka, Katarzyna, Weselake, Randall, Smith, Mark A., Stymne, Sten, Bayon, Shen, Zou, Jitao, Lager, Ida, Dyer, John M., Shockey, Jay M., Yilmaz, Jenny L., Wang, Peng, Kazachkov, Michael
Acyl-CoA:lysophosphatidylcholine acyltransferase (LPCAT) enzymes have central roles in acyl editing of phosphatidylcholine (PC). Plant LPCAT genes were expressed in yeast and characterized biochemically in microsomal preparations of the cells. Specificities for different acyl-CoAs were similar...
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...

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...
ABSTRACT 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...
