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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
