  • 29 April 2008
Storage oil mobilization starts with the onset of seed germination. Oil bodies packed with triacylglycerol (TAG) exist in close proximity with glyoxysomes, the single membrane-bound organelles thatExpand

Acyl-Lipid Metabolism
Acyl lipids in Arabidopsis and all other plants have a myriad of diverse functions. These include providing the core diffusion barrier of the membranes that separates cells and subcellularExpand

Arabidopsis ABA INSENSITIVE4 Regulates Lipid Mobilization in the Embryo and Reveals Repression of Seed Germination by the Endosperm[W]
Regulation of seed germination requires coordinate action by the embryo and surrounding endosperm. We used Arabidopsis thaliana to establish the relative roles of embryo and endosperm in the controlExpand

Cold and Light Control Seed Germination through the bHLH Transcription Factor SPATULA
BACKGROUND Plants integrate signals from the environment and use these to modify the timing of development according to seasonal cues. Seed germination is a key example of this phenomenon and inExpand

Carbon Catabolite Repression Regulates Glyoxylate Cycle Gene Expression in Cucumber.
We have previously proposed that metabolic status is important in the regulation of cucumber malate synthase (MS) and isocitrate lyase (ICL) gene expression during plant development. In this article,Expand

Requirement for 3-ketoacyl-CoA thiolase-2 in peroxisome development, fatty acid beta-oxidation and breakdown of triacylglycerol in lipid bodies of Arabidopsis seedlings.
3-ketoacyl-CoA thiolase (KAT) (EC: 2.3.1.16) catalyses a key step in fatty acid beta-oxidation. Expression of the Arabidopsis thaliana KAT gene on chromosome 2 (KAT2), which encodes a peroxisomalExpand

Reserve Mobilization in the Arabidopsis Endosperm Fuels Hypocotyl Elongation in the Dark, Is Independent of Abscisic Acid, and Requires PHOSPHOENOLPYRUVATE CARBOXYKINASE1
Arabidopsis thaliana is used as a model system to study triacylglycerol (TAG) accumulation and seed germination in oilseeds. Here, we consider the partitioning of these lipid reserves between embryoExpand

Control of germination and lipid mobilization by COMATOSE, the Arabidopsis homologue of human ALDP
Embryo dormancy in flowering plants is an important dispersal mechanism that promotes survival of the seed through time. The subsequent transition to germination is a critical control pointExpand

Long chain polyunsaturated fatty acid production and partitioning to triacylglycerols in four microalgae.
Gas chromatographic profiling of fatty acids was performed during the growth cycle of four marine microalgae in order to establish which, if any, of these could act as a reliable source of genes forExpand

Potential of Jatropha curcas as a source of renewable oil and animal feed.
Jatropha curcas (L.) is a perennial plant of the spurge family (Euphorbiaceae). Recently, it has received much attention as a potential source of vegetable oil as a replacement for petroleum, and, inExpand
