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