The eukaryotic cell division cycle is coordinated by cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs), represented by a single major serine/threonine kinase in yeasts (Cdc2/CDC28) and a family of kinases (CDK1 to CDK8) in human cells. Previously, two cdc2 homologs, cdc2MsA and cdc2MsB, have been identified in alfalfa (Medicago sativa). By isolating cDNAs using a cdc2MsA(More)
Wheat genes differentially expressed in the egg cell before and after fertilization were identified. The data support zygotic gene activation before the first cell division in wheat. To have an insight into fertilization-induced gene expression, cDNA libraries have been prepared from isolated wheat egg cells and one-celled zygotes. Two-hundred and(More)
The Arabidopsis receptor-like cytoplasmic kinase AtRLCK VI_A3 is activated by AtROPs and is involved in trichome branching and pathogen interaction. Receptor-like cytoplasmic kinases (RLCKs) belong to the large superfamily of receptor-like kinases, which are involved in a variety of cellular processes like plant growth, development and immune responses.(More)
Nitric oxide is known to act as a biological messenger in divers signal transduction pathways in animal organisms. Initial investigations suggest that plants use nitric oxide as a signaling molecule via pathways remarkably similar to those found in mammals. Especially, the siganiling role of NO during plant defense reactions is well established. However,(More)
Nucleosome assembly protein-related proteins (NRPs) are multifunctional proteins having histone chaperone and phosphatase inhibitor properties. Although it is believed that these proteins are nuclear and bind the chromatin, they can be detected in the cytoplasmic but not in the nuclear protein fraction by immunoblotting analysis. It is shown here that under(More)
Research of plant RHO-type (ROP) GTPases has considerably accelerated during the last few years. Now it is clear that these small proteins play central roles as signalling molecules during many basic cellular processes including cell shape determination, polar growth and responses to hormones, stress factors or pathogens. ROP GTPases have the potential to(More)
