Systems analysis of transcriptome data provides new hypotheses about Arabidopsis root response to nitrate treatments
TLDR
The role of biological processes not studied before in the context of the nitrate response such as root hair development is highlighted and a testable hypothesis to advance the understanding of nitrate responses in plants is provided. Expand
De novo assembly of maritime pine transcriptome: implications for forest breeding and biotechnology.
TLDR
Detailed characterization of the maritime pine transcriptome was performed using a combination of two different next-generation sequencing platforms, 454 and Illumina, allowing the identification of polymorphisms and the establishment of robust single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) and simple-sequence repeat (SSR) databases for genotyping applications and integration of translational genomics in maritime pine breeding programmes.

Transcriptome analysis reveals regulatory networks underlying differential susceptibility to Botrytis cinerea in response to nitrogen availability in Solanum lycopersicum
TLDR
It is shown that Solanum lycopersicum defense response to the necrotrophic fungus Botrytis cinerea is affected by plant N availability, with higher susceptibility in nitrate-limiting conditions, which suggests that differential susceptibility to pathogen attack under contrasting N conditions is not only explained by a metabolic alteration. Expand
Nitrogen control of developmental phase transitions in Arabidopsis thaliana.
TLDR
This review focuses on the molecular mechanisms underlying N regulation of developmental transitions and the role of putative new regulators that might link N availability to pathways controlling Arabidopsis growth and development from seed germination through the plant reproductive transition. Expand
The glutamine synthetase gene family in Populus
TLDR
The data suggest that GS duplicates could have been retained in order to increase the amount of enzyme in a particular cell type, which could contribute to the homeostasis of nitrogen metabolism in functions associated to changes in glutamine-derived metabolic products. Expand
EuroPineDB: a high-coverage web database for maritime pine transcriptome
TLDR
The EuroPineDB with its integrated information can be used to reveal new knowledge, offers an easy-to-use collection of information to directly support experimental work (including microarray hybridisation), and provides deeper knowledge on the maritime pine transcriptome. Expand
Poplar trees for phytoremediation of high levels of nitrate and applications in bioenergy.
TLDR
The results show that GS transgenic poplars can be used not only for improving growth and biomass production but also as an important resource for potential phytoremediation of nitrate pollution. Expand
Nitrate induction of root hair density is mediated by TGA1/TGA4 and CPC transcription factors in Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
It is shown that nitrate increases root hair density in Arabidopsis thaliana and prompted a model where nitrate signaling via TGA1/TGA4 directly regulates the CPC root hair cell fate specification gene to increase formation of root hairs in A. thaliana. Expand
The Integration of Electrical Signals Originating in the Root of Vascular Plants
TLDR
The physiological role of electrical signaling in nutrient uptake and how nutrient variations may become an electrical signal propagating along the plant are discussed. Expand
The overexpression of the pine transcription factor PpDof5 in Arabidopsis leads to increased lignin content and affects carbon and nitrogen metabolism.
TLDR
The data suggest that in addition to controlling ammonium assimilation, PpDof 5 could be also involved in the regulation of other pathways in carbon and nitrogen metabolism in pine trees. Expand
