The TRANSPARENT TESTA GLABRA1 locus, which regulates trichome differentiation and anthocyanin biosynthesis in Arabidopsis, encodes a WD40 repeat protein.
The TRANSPARENT TESTA GLABRA1 (TTG1) locus regulates several developmental and biochemical pathways in Arabidopsis, including the formation of hairs on leaves, stems, and roots, and the production ofExpand
The TRANSPARENT TESTA GLABRA1 Locus, Which Regulates Trichome Differentiation and Anthocyanin Biosynthesis in Arabidopsis, Encodes a WD40 Repeat Protein
The TRANSPARENT TESTA GLABRA1 (TTG1) locus regulates several developmental and biochemical pathways in Arabidopsis, including the formation of hairs on leaves, stems, and roots, and the production ofExpand
A rapid and robust method of identifying transformed Arabidopsis thaliana seedlings following floral dip transformation
TLDR
Transformed seedlings are easily discernable from non-transformants in as little as 3.25 d in comparison to the 7–10 d required for selection using current protocols, an improvement on current selection methods. Expand
Localized hypermutation and associated gene losses in legume chloroplast genomes.
TLDR
The results suggest that, as well as accelerating sequence evolution, localized hypermutation has contributed to the phenomenon of gene loss or relocation to the nucleus in Trifolium species. Expand
Many Parallel Losses of infA from Chloroplast DNA during Angiosperm Evolution with Multiple Independent Transfers to the Nucleus
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of infA sequences and assessment of transit peptide homology indicate that the four nuclear infA genes are probably derived from four independent gene transfers from chloroplast to nuclear DNA during angiosperm evolution. Expand
Stromules: Mobile Protrusions and Interconnections Between Plastids
TLDR
Stroma-filled tubules, recently named stromules, extend from the surface of plastids in most cell types and plant species examined and provide a means of enormously increasing the plastid surface area. Expand
Coordination of plastid and nuclear gene expression.
TLDR
Characterization of arabidopsis gun (genomes uncoupled) mutants, which express nuclear genes in the presence of norflurazon or lincomycin, has provided evidence for two separate signalling pathways, one involving tetrapyrrole biosynthesis intermediates and the other requiring plastid protein synthesis. Expand
Plastid Translation Is Required for the Expression of Nuclear Photosynthesis Genes in the Dark and in Roots of the Pea lip1 Mutant
TLDR
The plastid signal regulates the expression of nuclear photosynthesis genes in the dark and in roots of the lip1 mutant, and this accumulation, which was associated with the development of chloroplasts, was again dependent onPlastid translation. Expand
Sequence of the Tomato Chloroplast DNA and Evolutionary Comparison of Solanaceous Plastid Genomes
TLDR
A first contribution toward deciphering the genetic information of tomato is presented, presenting the complete sequence of the tomato chloroplast genome (plastome), and several new sites of RNA editing by cytidine-to-uridine conversion are discovered. Expand
Stromules: a characteristic cell-specific feature of plastid morphology.
TLDR
The primary function of Stromules is still unresolved, although the presence of stromules markedly increases the plastid surface area, potentially increasing transport to and from the cytosol. Expand
