Metabolism of cyclic carotenoids: a model for the alteration of this biosynthetic pathway in Capsicum annuum chromoplasts.
The biosynthetic pathway of cyclic carotenoid is known to be quantitatively and qualitatively different in the non-green plastids of Capsicum annuum fruits compared with chloroplasts. Here, theExpand

Developmental and Stress Regulation of Gene Expression for Plastid and Cytosolic Isoprenoid Pathways in Pepper Fruits
Plant cells synthesize a myriad of isoprenoid compounds in different subcellular compartments, which include the plastid, the mitochondria, and the endoplasmic reticulum cytosol. To start the studyExpand

Identification of a plastid protein involved in vesicle fusion and/or membrane protein translocation.
Structural evidence has accumulated suggesting that fusion and/or translocation factors are involved in plastid membrane biogenesis. To test this hypothesis, we have developed an in vitro system inExpand

Structure of a functional geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate synthase gene from Capsicum annuum
A geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate synthase (GGPPS) gene from Capsicum annuum (bell pepper) was cloned. The nucleotide sequence shows that this gene, like the capsanthin/capsorubin gene but unlike theExpand

Identification of genes in cassava that are differentially expressed during infection with Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. manihotis.
SUMMARY The cDNA-amplified fragment length polymorphism approach was used to identify differentially expressed transcripts from cassava infected by Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. manihotis (Xam).Expand
