Extracellular invertase mediates phloem unloading via an apoplastic pathway. The gene encoding isoenzyme Nin88 from tobacco was cloned and shown to be characterized by a specific spatial and temporal expression pattern. Tissue-specific antisense repression of Nin88 under control of the corresponding promoter in tobacco results in a block during early stages(More)
We have established a detailed framework for the process of shoot regeneration from Arabidopsis root and hypocotyl explants grown in vitro. Using transgenic plant lines in which the GUS or GFP genes were fused to promoters of developmental genes (WUS, CLV1, CLV3, STM, CUC1, PLT1, RCH1, QC25), or to promoters of genes encoding indicators of the auxin(More)
This report describes the identification of novel plant genes that are required to ensure co-ordinated post-embryonic development. After germination the tumorous shoot development mutants of Arabidopsis thaliana develop disorganized tumorous tissue instead of organized leaves and stems. This results in green callus-like structures, which are capable of(More)
Photorespiratory metabolism is essential in all oxygenic photosynthetic organisms. In plants, it is a highly compartmentalized pathway that involves chloroplasts, peroxisomes, mitochondria and the cytoplasm. The metabolic pathway itself is well characterized, and the enzymes required for its function have been identified. However, very little information is(More)
Expression of therolC gene fromAgrobacterium rhizogenes causes morphological and developmental alterations in transgenic plants. The histological alterations underlying the macroscopic changes and the cellular localization of the site of expression of therolC gene have shown that: (i) the expression of therolC gene is developmentally regulated, (ii) in(More)
Expression of BZI-1 Delta N, a dominant-negative form of the tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) basic leucine zipper (bZIP) transcription factor BZI-1 leads to severe defects in pollen development which coincides with reduced transcript abundance of the stamen specific invertase gene NIN88 and decreased extracellular invertase enzymatic activity. This finding(More)
Lentil root statocytes show a strict structural polarity of their organelles with respect to the g vector. These cells are involved in the perception of gravity and are responsible for the orientation of the root. Actin filaments take part in the positioning of their organelles and could also be involved in the transduction of the gravitropic signal. A(More)
The expression of the mitotic cyclin Arath;CYCB1;1 and of the cyclin-dependent kinase Arath;CDC2a was located by β-glucuronidase histochemical detection and in situ hybridization, and was quantified by 4-methylumbelliferyl β-D-glucuronide assay in tobacco stem tissues during both in vivo differentiation and in vitro dedifferentiation. The changes in(More)
 Hairy root clones were established from carrot root discs inoculated with an agropine-type strain of Agrobacterium rhizogenes A4 harbouring the gus reporter gene on the TL-DNA. The clones were periodically examined for their phenotypic characteristics and for their ability to express the gus gene, to produce opines and to grow in the presence of NAM. The(More)
Cytokinin deficiency causes pleiotropic developmental changes such as reduced shoot and increased root growth. It was investigated whether cytokinin-deficient tobacco plants, which overproduce different cytokinin oxidase/dehydrogenase enzymes, show changes in different sink and source parameters, which could be causally related to the establishment of the(More)
