A simple treatment to significantly increase signal specificity in immunohistochemistry
It is increasingly important to understand a gene’s function at the protein level. Immunohistochemistry is used to identify new functions of phytohormones by finding their precise localizationExpand

Preferential localization of abscisic acid in primordial and nursing cells of reproductive organs of Arabidopsis and cucumber.
Abscisic acid (ABA) is known to function in plant stress responses and seed dormancy, and much is known about its detailed mechanisms of signal transduction. Recent studies suggest that this hormoneExpand

Sexual reproduction in higher plants I: fertilization and the initiation of zygotic program.
Sexual plant reproduction is a critical developmental step in the life cycle of higher plants, to allow maternal and paternal genes to be transmitted in a highly regulated manner to the nextExpand

ZYGOTE-ARREST 3 that encodes the tRNA ligase is essential for zygote division in Arabidopsis.
In sexual organisms, division of the zygote initiates a new life cycle. Although several genes involved in zygote division are known in plants, how the zygote is activated to start embryogenesis hasExpand
