Plant receptor-like serine threonine kinases: roles in signaling and plant defense.
Plants are hosts to a wide array of pathogens from all kingdoms of life. In the absence of an active immune system or combinatorial diversifications that lead to recombination-driven somatic geneExpand

Targeted Genome Editing Across Species Using ZFNs and TALENs
Engineered nucleases target specific DNA sequences for gene disruption in nonmodel organisms. Evolutionary studies necessary to dissect diverse biological processes have been limited by the lack ofExpand

“To dryness and beyond” – Preparation for the dried state and rehydration in vegetative desiccation-tolerant plants
The ability of vegetative plant tissues to survive desiccation is an uncommon trait, although plants that are able to do this represent all major classes of plants. Two classes of vegetativeExpand

The aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH) gene superfamily of the moss Physcomitrella patens and the algae Chlamydomonas reinhardtii and Ostreococcus tauri
Abstract The assembled Physcomitrella patens genome has been released. This provides a unique opportunity to identify and characterize new genes, and to compare moss genes with other plant genes fromExpand

Direct analysis of artemisinin from Artemisia annua L. using high-performance liquid chromatography with evaporative light scattering detector, and gas chromatography with flame ionization detector.
Since the isolation of artemisinin 32 years ago, it has been analyzed by different chromatographic techniques. This work compared the analysis of artemisinin from crude plant samples by GC with flameExpand

Is chronic rhinosinusitis caused by persistent respiratory virus infection?†, ‡, §
Many chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) patients recall an upper respiratory tract infection as the inciting event of their chronic illness. Viral infections have been shown to cause obstruction of theExpand

How some plants recover from vegetative desiccation: A repair based strategy
Desiccation-tolerant plants can be grouped into two categories: the 1) desiccation-tolerant plants whose internal water content rapidly equilibrates to the water potential of the environment and 2)Expand

Pathogenesis and treatment of chronic rhinosinusitis
Chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) is one of the most common diseases in western societies, causing significant morbidity and resulting in great financial cost. Some patients suffer persistent or recurrentExpand

TRIGONELLINE CONCENTRATIONS IN SALT STRESSED LEAVES OF CULTIVATED GLYCINE MAX
Abstract Concentration of trigonelline (nicotinic acid betaine) and relative water content were determined in nonstressed and salt stressed leaves of 30-day old seedlings of Glycine max among 17Expand

Translational control in plant stress: the formation of messenger ribonucleoprotein particles (mRNPs) in response to desiccation of Tortula ruralis gametophytes
Summary Changes in gene expression observed in vivo in response to desiccation and rehydration of the desiccation-tolerant bryophyte Tortula ruralis are regulated by alterations in the pattern ofExpand
