ATTED-II provides coexpressed gene networks for Arabidopsis
ATTED-II (http://atted.jp) is a database of gene coexpression in Arabidopsis that can be used to design a wide variety of experiments, including the prioritization of genes for functionalExpand
ATTED-II: a database of co-expressed genes and cis elements for identifying co-regulated gene groups in Arabidopsis
An Arabidopsis thaliana trans-factor and cis-element prediction database that provides co-regulated gene relationships based on co-expressed genes deduced from microarray data and the predicted cis elements to help researchers to clarify the function and regulation of particular genes and gene networks is reported.

12-Oxo-Phytodienoic Acid Triggers Expression of a Distinct Set of Genes and Plays a Role in Wound-Induced Gene Expression in Arabidopsis1[w]
Microarray analysis of Arabidopsis genes revealed that an OPDA signaling pathway functions independently of JA/MeJA signaling and is required for the wounding response inArabidopsis. Expand
Two types of MGDG synthase genes, found widely in both 16:3 and 18:3 plants, differentially mediate galactolipid syntheses in photosynthetic and nonphotosynthetic tissues in Arabidopsis thaliana
Type B isoforms with the enzymes of type A that are known to sit in the inner membrane of plastid envelope are compared to show that both types are not specialized isoforms for the prokaryotic and eukaryotic glycerolipid biosynthetic pathways. Expand
Klebsormidium flaccidum genome reveals primary factors for plant terrestrial adaptation
The draft genome sequence of the filamentous terrestrial alga Klebsormidium flaccidum is reported to elucidate the early transition step from aquatic algae to land plants and suggests that, during evolution, this alga acquired the fundamental machinery required for adaptation to terrestrial environments.

Cloning of chlorophyllase, the key enzyme in chlorophyll degradation: finding of a lipase motif and the induction by methyl jasmonate.
The Chlase cDNA isolated in the present study shared 37% identity with a function-unknown gene whose mRNA is inducible by coronatine and methyl jasmonate in Arabidopsis thaliana and expressed the gene products of AtCLH1 and of CaCLH in Escherichia coli, and they similarly exhibited Chlases activity.

A Novel Phosphatidylcholine-hydrolyzing Phospholipase C Induced by Phosphate Starvation in Arabidopsis*
The results suggest that NPC4 plays an important role in the supply of both inorganic phosphate and diacylglycerol from membrane-localized phospholipids that would be used for phosphate supplementation and the replacement of polar lipids in the root plasma membrane during phosphate deprivation. Expand
ARC3, a chloroplast division factor, is a chimera of prokaryotic FtsZ and part of eukaryotic phosphatidylinositol-4-phosphate 5-kinase.
The arc3 (accumulation and replication of chloroplast) mutant of Arabidopsis thaliana has a small number of abnormally large chloroplasts in the cell, suggesting that chloroplast division is arrestedExpand
Arabidopsis lipins mediate eukaryotic pathway of lipid metabolism and cope critically with phosphate starvation
Results indicate that PAH1 and PAH2 are the PAP responsible for the eukaryotic pathway of galactolipid synthesis, and the membrane lipid remodeling mediated by these two enzymes is an essential adaptation mechanism to cope with phosphate starvation. Expand
Coordinated activation of metabolic pathways for antioxidants and defence compounds by jasmonates and their roles in stress tolerance in Arabidopsis.
The results suggest that the coordinated activation of the metabolic pathways mediated by jasmonates provides resistance to environmental stresses. Expand
