The alternative oxidase lowers mitochondrial reactive oxygen production in plant cells.
Besides the cytochrome c pathway, plant mitochondria have an alternative respiratory pathway that is comprised of a single homodimeric protein, alternative oxidase (AOX). Transgenic cultured tobaccoExpand

Structure and composition of the photochemical apparatus of the antarctic green alga, Chlamydomonas subcaudata
The green alga, Chlamydomonas subcaudata, collected from a perennially ice-covered Antarctic lake, was able to grow at temperatures of 16°C or lower, but not at temperatures of 20°C or higher, whichExpand

Evidence of mitochondrial involvement in the transduction of signals required for the induction of genes associated with pathogen attack and senescence.
Using the mRNA differential display technique, seven cDNAs have been isolated that are rapidly induced when cultured tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) cells are treated with the mitochondrial electronExpand

IMMUTANS Does Not Act as a Stress-Induced Safety Valve in the Protection of the Photosynthetic Apparatus of Arabidopsis during Steady-State Photosynthesis1
IMMUTANS (IM) encodes a thylakoid membrane protein that has been hypothesized to act as a terminal oxidase that couples the reduction of O2 to the oxidation of the plastoquinone (PQ) pool of theExpand

Photosynthetic Redox Imbalance Governs Leaf Sectoring in the Arabidopsis thaliana Variegation Mutants immutans, spotty, var1, and var2[W]
We hypothesized that chloroplast energy imbalance sensed through alterations in the redox state of the photosynthetic electron transport chain, measured as excitation pressure, governs the extent ofExpand

Growth at Low Temperature Mimics High-Light Acclimation in Chlorella vulgaris
Structural and functional alterations to the photosynthetic apparatus after growth at low temperature (5[deg]C) were investigated in the green alga Chlorella vulgaris Beijer. Cells grown at 5[deg]CExpand

Redox Regulation of Light-Harvesting Complex II and cab mRNA Abundance in Dunaliella salina
We demonstrate that photosynthetic adjustment at the level of the light-harvesting complex associated with photosystem II (LCHII) in Dunaliella salina is a response to changes in the redox state ofExpand

A novel expression platform for the production of diabetes-associated autoantigen human glutamic acid decarboxylase (hGAD65)
BackgroundHuman glutamic acid decarboxylase 65 (hGAD65) is a key autoantigen in type 1 diabetes, having much potential as an important marker for the prediction and diagnosis of type 1 diabetes, andExpand

Flexibility in photosynthetic electron transport: the physiological role of plastoquinol terminal oxidase (PTOX).
Oxygenic photosynthesis depends on a highly conserved electron transport system, which must be particularly dynamic in its response to environmental and physiological changes, in order to avoid anExpand

Photosystem II Excitation Pressure and Development of Resistance to Photoinhibition (I. Light-Harvesting Complex II Abundance and Zeaxanthin Content in Chlorella vulgaris)
The basis of the increased resistance to photoinhibition upon growth at low temperature was investigated. Photosystem II (PSII) excitation pressure was estimated in vivo as 1 - qp (photochemicalExpand
