Molecular cloning and sequence analysis of expansins--a highly conserved, multigene family of proteins that mediate cell wall extension in plants.
Expansins are unusual proteins discovered by virtue of their ability to mediate cell wall extension in plants. We identified cDNA clones for two cucumber expansins on the basis of peptide sequencesExpand

Characterization of a plasma membrane-associated phosphoinositide-specific phospholipase C from soybean.
Phosphoinositide-specific phospholipase C (PI-PLC) is a key signal transducing enzyme which generates the second messengers inositol trisphosphate and diacylglycerol in mammalian cells. A cDNA cloneExpand

Identification and Characterization of an S-Adenosyl-L-methionine:-Sterol-C-methyltransferase cDNA from Soybean (*)
In plants, the dominant sterols are 24-alkyl sterols, which play multiple roles in plant growth and development, i.e. as membrane constituents and as precursors to steroid growth regulators such asExpand

High resolution genetic and physical mapping of molecular markers linked to the Phytophthora resistance gene Rps1-k in soybean
The resistance of soybean to Phytophthora root and stem rot caused by Phytophthora sojae is conferred by a series of single-dominant Rps genes. We have applied random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD)Expand

Identification of cDNA clones encoding valosin-containing protein and other plant plasma membrane-associated proteins by a general immunoscreening strategy.
An approach was developed for the isolation and characterization of soybean plasma membrane-associated proteins by immunoscreening of a cDNA expression library. An antiserum was raised againstExpand

A novel plasma membrane-bound thioredoxin from soybean
Two thioredoxin cDNAs from soybean were isolated by screening an expression library using an anti-(plasma membrane) serum. The nucleotide sequences of the two cDNAs were found to be 89% identical.Expand

Evaluation of Simple and Inexpensive High-Throughput Methods for Phytic Acid Determination
High-throughput/low-cost/low-tech methods for phytic acid determination that are sufficiently accurate and reproducible would be of value in plant genetics, crop breeding and in the food and feedExpand
