The coffee genome provides insight into the convergent evolution of caffeine biosynthesis
Coffee, tea, and chocolate converge Caffeine has evolved multiple times among plant species, but no one knows whether these events involved similar genes. Denoeud et al. sequenced the CoffeaExpand

Genetic dissection of blue-light sensing in tomato using mutants deficient in cryptochrome 1 and phytochromes A, B1 and B2.
Several novel allelic groups of tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) mutants with impaired photomorphogenesis have been identified after gamma-ray mutagenesis of phyA phyB1 double-mutant seed. RecessiveExpand

The Effect of Zeaxanthin as the Only Xanthophyll on the Structure and Function of the Photosynthetic Apparatus in Arabidopsis thaliana*
In green plants, the xanthophyll carotenoid zeaxanthin is synthesized transiently under conditions of excess light energy and participates in photoprotection. In the Arabidopsis lut2 npq2 doubleExpand

LHCBM1 and LHCBM2/7 Polypeptides, Components of Major LHCII Complex, Have Distinct Functional Roles in Photosynthetic Antenna System of Chlamydomonas reinhardtii*
Background: Light harvesting genes associated with photosystem II (LHCBM) form a conserved multigene family involved in light absorption and photoprotection. Results: Silencing of LHCBM1 and LHCBM2/7Expand

Tomato contains homologues of Arabidopsis cryptochromes 1 and 2
Cryptochromes are blue light photoreceptors found in both plants and animals. They probably evolved from photolyases, which are blue/UV-light-absorbing photoreceptors involved in DNA repair. In seedExpand

Tomato and barley contain duplicated copies of cryptochrome 1
The cryptochrome family of blue-light photoreceptors is involved in the control of plant photomorphogenesis and photoperiodic responses. Two cryptochromes have been described in Arabidopsis andExpand

The gene crtI mediates the conversion of phytoene into colored carotenoids in Rhodopseudomonas capsulata.
Carotenoids are membrane pigments present in all photosynthetic organisms, providing essential photoprotective functions. The first carotenoid formed in the pathway is phytoene, a colorless compoundExpand

Immunosuppressive treatment for idiopathic membranous nephropathy in adults with nephrotic syndrome.
BACKGROUND Idiopathic membranous nephropathy (IMN) is the most common form of nephrotic syndrome in adults. The disease shows a benign or indolent course in the majority of patients, with a rate ofExpand

The function of LHCBM4/6/8 antenna proteins in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii
Highlight LHCBM4/6/8 are three closely related light-harvesting proteins in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. Reverse genetics show that they have specific functions in photoprotection, namely inExpand
