Role of peroxisomes in the oxidative injury induced by 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid in leaves of pea plants
The role of peroxisomes in the oxidative injury induced by the auxin herbicide 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) in leaves of pea (Pisum sativum L.) plants was studied. Applications of (2,4-D)Expand

HAD hydrolase function unveiled by substrate screening: enzymatic characterization of Arabidopsis thaliana subclass I phosphosugar phosphatase AtSgpp
This work presents the isolation and the biochemical characterization of the Arabidopsis thaliana gene AtSgpp. This gene shows homology with the Arabidopsis low molecular weight phosphatases AtGpp1Expand

The vaccine adjuvant extra domain A from fibronectin retains its proinflammatory properties when expressed in tobacco chloroplasts
We previously showed that recombinant extra domain A from fibronectin (EDA) purified from Escherichia coli was able to bind to toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) and stimulate production of proinflammatoryExpand

Organ-specific effects of the auxin herbicide 2,4-D on the oxidative stress and senescence-related parameters of the stems of pea plants
Oxidative stress and senescence have been shown to participate in the toxicity mechanism of auxin herbicides in the leaves and roots of sensitive plants. However, their role in stem toxicity has notExpand

The kinetic analysis of the substrate specificity of motif 5 in a HAD hydrolase-type phosphosugar phosphatase of Arabidopsis thaliana
The Arabidopsis thaliana gene AtSgpp (locus tag At2g38740), encodes a protein whose sequence motifs and expected structure reveal that it belongs to the HAD hydrolases subfamily I, with the C1-typeExpand

Role of reactive oxygen species in auxin herbicide phytotoxicity: current information and hormonal implications — are gibberellins, cytokinins, and polyamines involved?
It has been suggested that reactive oxygen species (ROS) participate in the injury and death of sensitive plants treated with auxin herbicides. However, their precise role in the phytotoxicity ofExpand

Sequence Determinants of Substrate Ambiguity in a HAD Phosphosugar Phosphatase of Arabidopsis Thaliana
The Arabidopsis thaliana broad-range sugar phosphate phosphatase AtSgpp (NP_565895.1, locus AT2G38740) and the specific DL-glycerol-3-phosphatase AtGpp (NP_568858.1, locus AT5G57440) are members ofExpand
