Using phragmoplastin as a bait, we isolated an Arabidopsis cDNA encoding a novel UDP-glucose transferase (UGT1). This interaction was confirmed by an in vitro protein--protein interaction assay using purified UGT1 and radiolabeled phragmoplastin. Protein gel blot results revealed that UGT1 is associated with the membrane fraction and copurified with the(More)
Dysregulated signal transduction through the notch pathway has been noted in human and mouse medulloblastoma studies. Gamma secretase inhibitors (GSIs) impair notch signaling by preventing the cleavage of transmembrane notch proteins into their active intracellular domain fragments. Previous studies have shown that GSI treatment caused apoptosis and(More)
To study the effects of cytokinin O-glucosylation in monocots, maize (Zea mays L.) transformants harbouring the ZOG1 gene (encoding a zeatin O-glucosyltransferase from Phaseolus lunatus L.) under the control of the constitutive ubiquitin (Ubi) promoter were generated. The roots and leaves of the transformants had greatly increased levels of(More)
