The heterotrimeric guanine nucleotide-binding protein (G-protein) has been demonstrated to mediate various signaling pathways in plants. However, its role in phytochrome A (phyA) signaling remains elusive. In this study, we discover a new phyA-mediated phenotype designated far-red irradiation (FR) preconditioned cell death, which occurs only in the(More)
Subunit interactions among the chloroplast ATP synthase subunits were studied using the yeast two-hybrid system. Various pairwise combinations of genes encoding α, β, γ, δ and ε subunits ofSpinach ATP synthase fused to the binding domain or activation domain of GAL4 DNA were introduced into yeast and then expression of a reporter gene encoding(More)
The previous work in our lab showed that the spinach chloroplast ATP synthase ε mutant with 3 amino acid residues deleted from the N-terminus had much lower ability to inhibit ATP hydrolysis and block proton leakage in comparison to a mutant with 1 or 2 residues deleted from the N-terminus. The present study aimed at determining whether there is special(More)
