Lateral relocation of auxin efflux regulator PIN3 mediates tropism in Arabidopsis
Long-standing models propose that plant growth responses to light or gravity are mediated by asymmetric distribution of the phytohormone auxin. Physiological studies implicated a specific transportExpand

Stress-induced morphogenic responses: growing out of trouble?
Plants exposed to sub-lethal abiotic stress conditions exhibit a broad range of morphogenic responses. Despite the diversity of phenotypes, a generic 'stress-induced morphogenic response' can beExpand

Patch-clamp analysis establishes a role for an auxin binding protein in the auxin stimulation of plasma membrane current in Zea mays protoplasts
The electrical response of Zea mays protoplasts to different auxins and to antibodies raised against an ER-located auxin binding protein from maize (Zm-ERabp1), was investigated using the patch-clampExpand

The putative sensor histidine kinase CKI1 is involved in female gametophyte development in Arabidopsis
Embryo sac formation is a fundamental step in sexual reproduction in plants. However, the key players involved in the development of the female gametophyte remain elusive. We present data indicatingExpand

Developmental regulation of the maize Zm-p60.1 gene encoding a β-glucosidase located to plastids
Abstract A β-glucosidase that cleaves the biologically inactive hormone conjugates cytokinin-O- and kinetin-N3-glucosides is encoded by the maize Zm-p60.1 gene. The expression of the Zm-p60.1 geneExpand

Separation of ballistic and diffusive fluorescence photons in confocal Light-Sheet Microscopy of Arabidopsis roots
Image quality in light-sheet fluorescence microscopy is strongly affected by the shape of the illuminating laser beam inside embryos, plants or tissue. While the phase of Gaussian or Bessel beamsExpand

Two members of the ERabp gene family are expressed differentially in reproductive organs but to similar levels in the coleoptile of maize
A Zea mays cDNA clone, ZmERabp4, coding for a new member of the auxin-binding protein family was isolated. The primary amino acid sequence contains an N-terminal hydrophobic leader sequence, aExpand

A tobacco homolog of DCN1 is involved in pollen development and embryogenesis
Key MessageWe show that DCN1 binds ubiquitin and RUB/NEDD8, associates with cullin, and is functionally conserved. DCN1 activity is required for pollen development transitions and embryogenesis, andExpand

Tissue specific auxin biosynthesis regulates leaf vein patterning
The plant hormone auxin (indole-3-acetic acid, IAA) has a profound influence over plant cell growth and differentiation. Current understanding of vein development in leaves is based on theExpand
