The Arabidopsis Information Resource (TAIR, http://arabidopsis.org) is a genome database for Arabidopsis thaliana, an important reference organism for many fundamental aspects of biology as well as basic and applied plant biology research. TAIR serves as a central access point for Arabidopsis data, annotates gene function and expression patterns using(More)
Vascular plants evolved in the Middle to Late Silurian period, about 420 million years ago. The fossil record indicates that these primitive plants had branched stems with sporangia but no leaves. Leaf-like lateral outgrowths subsequently evolved on at least two independent occasions. In extant plants, these events are represented by microphyllous leaves in(More)
Cytochrome P4501B1 is highly active in the bioactivation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) to mutagenic metabolites. The C3H mouse embryo fibroblast cell line, C3H10T1/2, and primary mouse embryo fibroblasts (MEFs) express CYP1B1 as the predominant cytochrome P-450 form. This is constitutively expressed and induced by(More)
