Reversible modifications of target proteins by small ubiquitin-like modifier (SUMO) proteins are involved in many cellular processes in yeast and animals. Yet little is known about the function of sumoylation in plants. Here, we show that the SIZ1 gene, which encodes an Arabidopsis SUMO E3 ligase, regulates innate immunity. Mutant siz1 plants exhibit(More)
Throughout adulthood, neurons are continuously replaced by new cells in the dentate gyrus (DG) of the hippocampus, and this neurogenesis is increased by various neuronal injuries including ischemic stroke and seizure. While several mechanisms of this injury-induced neurogenesis have been elucidated, the initiation factor remains unclear. Here, we(More)
Tenecin 3 is a glycine-rich, antifungal protein of 78 residues isolated from the insect Tenebrio molitor larva. As an initial step towards understanding the antifungal mechanism of tenecin 3, we examined how this protein interacts with the pathogenic fungus Candida albicans to exert its antifungal action. Tenecin 3 did not induce the release of a(More)
The ubiquitin-26S proteasome system is important in the quality control of intracellular proteins. The ubiquitin-26S proteasome system includes the E1 (ubiquitin activating), E2 (ubiquitin conjugating), and E3 (ubiquitin ligase) enzymes. U-box proteins are a derived version of RING-finger domains, which have E3 enzyme activity. Here, we present the(More)
A mungbean low temperature-inducible VrPrx1 encoding 2-Cys peroxiredoxin (2-Cys Prx) was cloned by subtractive suppression hybridization. The deduced VrPrx1 amino acid sequence showed highest sequence homology to 2-Cys Prxs of Phaseolus vulgaris (95%), Pisum sativum (89%), and Arabidopsis thaliana (87%). VrPrx1 RNA and protein levels were increased by low(More)
The phytohormone abscisic acid (ABA) induces accumulation of reactive oxygen species (ROS), which can disrupt seed dormancy and plant development. Here, we report the isolation and characterization of an Arabidopsis thaliana mutant called ars1 (aba and ros sensitive 1) that showed hypersensitivity to ABA during seed germination and to methyl viologen (MV)(More)
Two cDNA clones encoding RNA binding proteins (RBPs) were isolated from a cDNA library constructed from salt-treated leaf tissues of wild radish (Raphanus sativus var. hortensis for raphanistroide). The deduced amino acid sequence of either RsRBP1 or RsGRP1 contains an RNA-recognition motif (RRM) at the carboxy or amino terminal. Comparative sequence(More)
MiR399f plays a crucial role in maintaining phosphate homeostasis in Arabidopsis thaliana. Under phosphate starvation conditions, AtMYB2, which plays a role in plant salt and drought stress responses, directly regulates the expression of miR399f. In this study, we found that miR399f also participates in plant responses to abscisic acid (ABA), and to abiotic(More)
We identified rice genes that might be involved in drought stress tolerance by virtue of their anti-apoptotic activity. Potential anti-apoptosis related genes were identified by screening an Oryza sativa cDNA library derived from drought stressed tissues in a yeast functional assay. About 28 O. sativa cDNAs promoted yeast survival following engagement of(More)
