Chloroplast-mediated activation of plant immune signalling in Arabidopsis.
Chloroplasts have a critical role in plant immunity as a site for the production for salicylic acid and jasmonic acid, important mediators of plant immunity. However, the molecular link betweenExpand

Functional Analysis of Two Solanesyl Diphosphate Synthases from Arabidopsis thaliana
Solanesyl diphosphate (SPP) is regarded as the precursor of the side-chains of both plastoquinone and ubiquinone in Arabidopsis thaliana. We previously analyzed A. thaliana SPP synthase (At-SPS1)Expand

Cloning and Characterization of Farnesyl Diphosphate Synthase from the Rubber-Producing Mushroom Lactarius chrysorrheus
Farnesyl diphosphate is involved in rubber biosynthesis as an initiating substrate for both polyprenol and mushroom rubber. So far, we have isolated the cDNA of a farnesyl diphosphate synthase (FPS)Expand
