pSAT vectors: a modular series of plasmids for autofluorescent protein tagging and expression of multiple genes in plants
Autofluorescent protein tags represent one of the major and, perhaps, most powerful tools in modern cell biology for visualization of various cellular processes in vivo. In addition, advances inExpand

Uncoupling of the functions of the Arabidopsis VIP1 protein in transient and stable plant genetic transformation by Agrobacterium.
Agrobacterium-mediated genetic transformation of plants, a unique example of transkingdom DNA transfer, requires the presence of several proteins encoded by the host cell. One such cellular factor isExpand

Agrobacterium induces expression of a host F-box protein required for tumorigenicity.
Agrobacterium exports DNA into plant cells, eliciting neoplastic growths on many plant species. During this process, a Skp1-Cdc53-cullin-F-box (SCF) complex that contains the bacterial virulenceExpand

How pollen tubes grow.
Sexual reproduction of flowering plants depends on delivery of the sperm to the egg, which occurs through a long, polarized projection of a pollen cell, called the pollen tube. The pollen tube growsExpand
