Arabidopsis Seed Development and Germination Is Associated with Temporally Distinct Metabolic Switches1[W]
While the metabolic networks in developing seeds during the period of reserve accumulation have been extensively characterized, much less is known about those present during seed desiccation andExpand

Highway or byway: the metabolic role of the GABA shunt in plants.
Much of the recent work on the gamma-aminobutyrate (GABA) shunt in plants has concentrated on stress/pest-associated and signalling roles. However, fifty years after the structural elucidation of theExpand

Mitochondrial succinic-semialdehyde dehydrogenase of the γ-aminobutyrate shunt is required to restrict levels of reactive oxygen intermediates in plants
The γ-aminobutyrate (GABA) shunt is a metabolic pathway that bypasses two steps of the tricarboxylic acid cycle, and it is present in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes. In plants the pathway isExpand

Reconfiguration of the Achene and Receptacle Metabolic Networks during Strawberry Fruit Development1[C][W]
The anatomy of strawberry (Fragaria × ananassa) fruit, in which the achene is found on the outer part of the fruit, makes it an excellent species for studying the regulation of fruit development. ItExpand

Metabolic Profiling of a Mapping Population Exposes New Insights in the Regulation of Seed Metabolism and Seed, Fruit, and Plant Relations
To investigate the regulation of seed metabolism and to estimate the degree of metabolic natural variability, metabolite profiling and network analysis were applied to a collection of 76 differentExpand

Seed desiccation: a bridge between maturation and germination.
The development of orthodox seeds concludes by a desiccation phase. The dry seeds then enter a phase of dormancy, also called the after-ripening phase, and become competent for germination. WeExpand

Biological Monitoring of Pesticide Exposure: a review. Introduction.
Pesticides are used worldwide in agriculture, industry, public health and for domestic applications: as a consequence, a great part of the population may be exposed to these compounds. In spite ofExpand

GABA shunt deficiencies and accumulation of reactive oxygen intermediates: insight from Arabidopsis mutants
In plants, succinic semialdehyde dehydrogenase (SSADH)‐deficiency results in the accumulation of reactive oxygen intermediates (ROI), necrotic lesions, dwarfism, and hypersensitivity to environmentalExpand

The COMATOSE ATP-Binding Cassette Transporter Is Required for Full Fertility in Arabidopsis1[W][OA]
COMATOSE (CTS) encodes a peroxisomal ATP-binding cassette transporter required not only for β-oxidation of storage lipids during germination and establishment, but also for biosynthesis of jasmonicExpand

Metabolite and transcript profiling of berry skin during fruit development elucidates differential regulation between Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz cultivars at branching points in the polyphenol
BackgroundGrapevine berries undergo complex biochemical changes during fruit maturation, many of which are dependent upon the variety and its environment. In order to elucidate the varietal dependentExpand
