  1. Age-dependent and jasmonic acid-induced laticifer-cell differentiation in anther callus cultures of rubber tree.

    Planta 240(2):337 (2014) PMID 24841475

    We present molecular and physiological evidences for laticifer-cell differentiation in calli derived from rubber tree anthers. RT-PCR analysis showed that three key genes rubber elongation factor (REF), small rubber particle protein (SRPP), and cis-prenyl transferase (CPT) that are essential in late...
  2. A DEAD-box RNA helicase produces two forms of transcript that differentially respond to cold stress in a cryophyte (Chorispora bungeana).

    Planta 240(2):369 (2014) PMID 24863059

    We characterized a cold-induced DEAD-box RNA helicase gene from C. bungeana. We cloned the full-length cDNA of the gene by RACE and called it C. bungeana DEAD-box RNA Helicase (CbDRH). Structurally, CbDRH possesses all nine conserved motifs characteristic of DEAD-box protein family members in its ce...
  3. Two aspartate residues at the putative p10 subunit of a type II metacaspase from Nicotiana tabacum L. may contribute to the substrate-bindin...

    Planta 239(1):147 (2014) PMID 24121807

    We report for the first time the identification and initial characterization of a metacaspase of Nicotiana tabacum L., NtMC1. By combining domain search, multiple sequence alignment (MSA), and protein fold-recognition studies, we provide compelling evidences that NtMC1 is a plant metacaspase type II...
  4. Role of asparaginase variable loop at the carboxyl terminal of the alpha subunit in the determination of substrate preference in plants.

    Planta 235(5):1013 (2012) PMID 22127737

    Structural determinants responsible for the substrate preference of the potassium-independent (ASPGA1) and -dependent (ASPGB1) asparaginases from Arabidopsis thaliana have been investigated. Like ASPGA1, ASPGB1 was found to be catalytically active with both L: -Asn and β-Asp-His as...
  5. Inhibition of aconitase in citrus fruit callus results in a metabolic shift towards amino acid biosynthesis.

    Planta 234(3):501 (2011) PMID 21528417

    We investigated the effect of citramalate and of another aconitase inhibitor, oxalomalate, on aconitase activity and regulation in callus originated from juice sacs. These compounds significantly increased citrate content and reduced the enzyme's activity, while slightly inducing its protein level....
  6. Decreased ROS level and activation of antioxidant gene expression in Agrobacterium rhizogenes pRiA4-transformed calli of Rubia cordifolia.

    Planta 232(5):1023 (2010) PMID 20680642

    We tested whether transformation of Rubia cordifolia cells by Agrobacterium rhizogenes had a similar effect. We isolated partial cDNA sequences of ascorbate peroxidase, catalase and Cu/Zn superoxide dismutase genes (RcApx1, RcApx2, RcApx3, RcCAT1, RcCAT2, RcCSD1, RcCSD2 and RcCSD3) from plant tissue...
  7. Sustained enhancement of photosynthesis in mature deciduous forest trees after 8 years of free air CO(2) enrichment.

    Planta 232(5):1115 (2010) PMID 20700744

    We investigated gas exchange characteristics and leaf traits in five deciduous tree species during their eighth growing season under free air carbon dioxide enrichment in a 35-m tall, ca. 100-year-old mixed forest. Net photosynthesis of upper-canopy foliage was 48% (July) and 42% (September) higher...
  8. Acclimation of photosynthesis to nitrogen deficiency in Phaseolus vulgaris.

    Planta 232(4):887 (2010) PMID 20632184

    We studied adjustments of the photosynthetic machinery in nitrogen-deficient bean plants and found four phenomena. First, the number of chloroplasts per cell decreased. Chloroplasts of nitrogen starved leaves contained less pigments than those of control leaves, but the in vitro activities of light...
  9. Patterns of molecular evolution and predicted function in thaumatin-like proteins of Populus trichocarpa.

    Planta 232(4):949 (2010) PMID 20645107

    We report the patterns of molecular evolution in thaumatin-like protein (TLP, PR5 protein) genes of Populus trichocarpa. Signs of positive selection were found in 20 out of 55 Populus TLPs using the likelihood ratio test and ML-based Bayesian methods. Due to the connection between the acidic cleft a...
  10. Rice fruit development is associated with an increased IAA content in pollinated ovaries.

    Planta 232(3):579 (2010) PMID 20512651

    We established an in vitro spikelet culture system. The ovary of cultured pollinated spikelets grew rapidly and developed into fruits with an embryo and endosperm. When unpollinated spikelets were cultured on a medium containing 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid, parthenocarpic fruits lacking an embryo...
