Auxin is one of the most important phytohormones involved in plant growth and development. Here, we identified a total of 26 Aux/IAA genes displaying high sequence identity within the conserved domains I, II, III, and IV by screening the grapevine genome proteome 12× database. The Vitis vinifera Aux/IAA proteins can be classified into two groups (A and B)(More)
A widely used approach for assessing genome instability in plants makes use of somatic homologous recombination (SHR) reporter lines. Here, we review the published characteristics and uses of SHR lines. We found a lack of detailed information on these lines and a lack of sufficient evidence that they report only homologous recombination. We postulate that(More)
Nucleotide sugars are synthesized in the cytosol and nucleus and transported into the lumen of the endoplasmic reticulum and the Golgi apparatus via nucleotide sugar transporters (NSTs). Because NSTs exhibit high similarities with triose phosphate translocators (TPTs), they are classified into the NST/TPT superfamily. Here, we identified 38 members of the(More)
