TRANSPARENT TESTA 19 is involved in the accumulation of both anthocyanins and proanthocyanidins in Arabidopsis.
TLDR
Results indicate that TT19 participates in the PA pathway as well as the anthocyanin pathway of Arabidopsis, and the function of TT19 in thePA pathway is also discussed in the context of the putative transporter for PA precursors. Expand
Cloning and functional expression of the gene encoding the key enzyme for chlorophyll b biosynthesis (CAO) from Arabidopsis thaliana.
TLDR
This work describes the expression and properties of the chlorophyllide a oxygenase gene (CAO) from Arabidopsis thaliana, which is apparently the key enzyme in Chl b biosynthesis, the second most abundant Chl pigment after Chl a. Expand
klavier (klv), a novel hypernodulation mutant of Lotus japonicus affected in vascular tissue organization and floral induction.
TLDR
Grafting experiments showed that klv is impaired in the long-distance shoot-to-root autoregulatory mechanism, and the shoot genotype was found to be responsible for the negative regulation of nodule development by KLV, which is a common feature of hypernodulating mutants. Expand
The Arabidopsis dwf7/ste1 Mutant Is Defective in the Δ7 Sterol C-5 Desaturation Step Leading to Brassinosteroid Biosynthesis
TLDR
Analysis of a novel BR biosynthetic locus, dwarf7 (dwf7), indicates that the reduction of BRs in dwf7 is due to a shortage of substrate sterols and is the direct cause of the dwarf phenotype in dwF7. Expand
p-Chlorophenoxyisobutyric Acid Impairs Auxin Response in Arabidopsis Root1
TLDR
The results suggest that PCIB impairs auxin-signaling pathway by regulating Aux/IAA protein stability and thereby affects the Auxin-regulated Arabidopsis root physiology. Expand
Studies on biological effects of ion beams on lethality, molecular nature of mutation, mutation rate, and spectrum of mutation phenotype for mutation breeding in higher plants.
TLDR
The results indicated that the characteristics of ion beams for mutation induction are high mutation frequency and broad mutation spectrum and therefore, efficient induction of novel mutants. Expand
Mutation rate and novel tt mutants of Arabidopsis thaliana induced by carbon ions.
TLDR
The isolation of novel mutants and the high mutation rate suggest that ion particles can be used as a valuable mutagen for plant genetics. Expand
The Arabidopsis dwarf1 mutant is defective in the conversion of 24-methylenecholesterol to campesterol in brassinosteroid biosynthesis.
TLDR
The molecular characterization of dwf1 alleles, together with biochemical data, suggest that the biosynthetic defect in dwF1 results in reduced synthesis of bioactive brassinosteroids, causing dwarfism. Expand
Analysis of mutations induced by carbon ions in Arabidopsis thaliana.
TLDR
The results indicated that carbon-ion-induced mutations are most likely nulls and that the induced rearrangements may arise through a unique mechanism, indicating that accelerated ions are a useful mutagen for both forward and reverse genetics for plants. Expand
Disruption of the AtREV3 gene causes hypersensitivity to ultraviolet B light and gamma-rays in Arabidopsis: implication of the presence of a translesion synthesis mechanism in plants.
TLDR
Results indicate that UV light-damaged DNA interrupted DNA replication in the rev3-1 mutant, leading to the inhibition of cell division and root elongation. Expand
