HFR1 is targeted by COP1 E3 ligase for post-translational proteolysis during phytochrome A signaling.
The results show that HFR1 is ubiquitinated by COP1 E3 ligase and marked for post-translational degradation during photomorphogenesis, and induced expression of wild-type COP1 in transgenic plants accelerates post- translational degraded of HFR 1 under FR light. Expand
Genome-wide identification of long noncoding natural antisense transcripts and their responses to light in Arabidopsis.
This work systematically identified long noncoding natural antisense transcripts (lncNATs), defined as lncRNAs transcribed from the opposite DNA strand of coding orNoncoding genes in Arabidopsis. Expand
Arabidopsis PHYTOCHROME INTERACTING FACTOR Proteins Promote Phytochrome B Polyubiquitination by COP1 E3 Ligase in the Nucleus[C][W]
This work identifies COP1 as the ubiquitin E3 ligase for not only phytochrome B but also other members of the stable phytochrome family and shows that PIF transcription factors enhance phyBExpand
Expression of a Bifunctional Fusion of the Escherichia coli Genes for Trehalose-6-Phosphate Synthase and Trehalose-6-Phosphate Phosphatase in Transgenic Rice Plants Increases Trehalose Accumulation
The results suggest thattrehalose acts as a global protectant against abiotic stress, and that rice is more tolerant to trehalose synthesis than dicots. Expand
Two cap-binding proteins CBP20 and CBP80 are involved in processing primary MicroRNAs.
It is found that CBP20 and CBP80 are stabilized by ABA by a post-translational mechanism, and these proteins are needed for ABA induction of miR159 during seed germination. Expand
RING1 E3 ligase localizes to plasma membrane lipid rafts to trigger FB1-induced programmed cell death in Arabidopsis.
It is suggested that RING1 acts as a signal from the plasma membrane lipid rafts to trigger the FB1-induced plant programmed cell death pathway. Expand
Co-expression of a Modified Maize Ribosome-inactivating Protein and a Rice Basic Chitinase Gene in Transgenic Rice Plants Confers Enhanced Resistance to Sheath Blight
The increased resistance co-segregated with herbicide tolerance, reflecting a correlation between the resistance phenotype and transgene expression. Expand
Rapid and Reversible Light-Mediated Chromatin Modifications of Arabidopsis Phytochrome A Locus[C][W]
The presence of activating and repressive histone marks suggests a mechanism for the rapid and reversible regulation of phyA by dark and light. Expand
High-Level and Ubiquitous Expression of the Rice Cytochromec Gene OsCc1 and Its Promoter Activity in Transgenic Plants Provides a Useful Promoter for Transgenesis of Monocots1
Activity of the OsCc1promoter was 3-fold higher than Act1 in calli and roots and comparable with RbcS in leaves, representing a useful alternative to the maize Ubi1 and the rice Act1 promoters for transgene expression in monocots. Expand
Structure and expression of the rice class-I type histone deacetylase genes OsHDAC1-3: OsHDAC1 overexpression in transgenic plants leads to increased growth rate and altered architecture.
The results demonstrate that Os HDAC1 overexpression in transgenic cells both yields enzymatically active HDAC complexes and induces changes in histone acetylation in vivo, suggesting that OsHDAC1 functions in the genome-wide programming of gene expression. Expand
