What happens to plant mitochondria under low oxygen? An omics review of the responses to low oxygen and reoxygenation.
Floods can rapidly submerge plants, limiting oxygen to the extent that oxidative phosphorylation no longer generates adequate ATP supplies. Low-oxygen tolerant plants, such as rice, are able toExpand

Retrograde signalling caused by heritable mitochondrial dysfunction is partially mediated by ANAC017 and improves plant performance.
Mitochondria are crucial for plant viability and are able to communicate information on their functional status to the cellular nucleus via retrograde signalling, thereby affecting gene expression.Expand

Variation in Leaf Respiration Rates at Night Correlates with Carbohydrate and Amino Acid Supply1[OPEN]
Mature Arabidopsis leaves display substantial variation in nighttime respiration rates that is metabolically linked to daytime carbon and nitrogen assimilation but not to nighttime protein synthesis.Expand

Infections with the Sexually Transmitted Pathogen Nosema apis Trigger an Immune Response in the Seminal Fluid of Honey Bees (Apis mellifera).
Honey bee (Apis mellifera) males are highly susceptible to infections with the sexually transmitted fungal pathogen Nosema apis. However, they are able to suppress this parasite in the ejaculateExpand

Connecting salt stress signalling pathways with salinity-induced changes in mitochondrial metabolic processes in C3 plants.
Salinity exerts a severe detrimental effect on crop yields globally. Growth of plants in saline soils results in physiological stress, which disrupts the essential biochemical processes ofExpand

Seminal fluid proteins differ in abundance between genetic lineages of honeybees.
Seminal fluid is transferred to the females' reproductive tract as part of the ejaculate and contains highly complex molecular machinery that is of central importance for male and female reproductiveExpand

Differential induction of mitochondrial machinery by light intensity correlates with changes in respiratory metabolism and photorespiration in rice leaves.
The light responsiveness of mitochondrial function was investigated through changes in mitochondrial composition and metabolism in rice (Oryza sativa) shoots. The mitochondrial proteome andExpand

Opportunities for wheat proteomics to discover the biomarkers for respiration-dependent biomass production, stress tolerance and cytoplasmic male sterility.
Wheat has served as a key species for characterising fundamental aspects of mitochondrial biochemistry and respiratory physiology. Respiratory traits are linked to many important agronomicExpand

The Mitochondrial DNA-Associated Protein SWIB5 Influences mtDNA Architecture and Homologous Recombination[OPEN]
SWIB5 can associate with DNA in mitochondria, where its proposed role in DNA repair and architecture might influence cell proliferation during development, suggesting that these processes are linked.Expand

Impact of oxidative stress on the function, abundance and turnover of the Arabidopsis 80S cytosolic ribosome.
Abiotic stress in plants causes accumulation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) leading to the need for new protein synthesis to defend against ROS and to replace existing proteins that are damaged byExpand
