Composition and physiological function of the chloroplast NADH dehydrogenase-like complex in Marchantia polymorpha.
The chloroplast NADH dehydrogenase-like (NDH) complex mediates cyclic electron transport and chloro-respiration and consists of five sub-omplexes, which in angiosperms further associate withExpand

PGR5-dependent cyclic electron transport around PSI contributes to the redox homeostasis in chloroplasts rather than CO(2) fixation and biomass production in rice.
The PGR5 (PROTON GRADIENT REGULATION 5) gene that is required for PSI cyclic electron transport in Arabidopsis was knocked down in rice (Oryza sativa). In three PGR5 knockdown (KD) lines, the PGR5Expand

A single amino acid alteration in PGR5 confers resistance to antimycin A in cyclic electron transport around PSI.
In Arabidopsis thaliana, the main route of cyclic electron transport around PSI is sensitive to antimycin A, but the site of inhibition has not been clarified. We discovered that ferredoxin-dependentExpand

chlB Requirement for Chlorophyll Biosynthesis under Short Photoperiod in Marchantia polymorpha L.
Chlorophylls (Chls) play pivotal roles in energy absorption and transduction and also in charge separation in reaction centers in all photosynthetic organisms. In Chl biosynthesis steps, only a stepExpand

Bioactivity of natural O-prenylated phenylpropenes from Illicium anisatum leaves and their derivatives against spider mites and fungal pathogens.
A variety of volatile phenylpropenes, C6-C3 compounds are widely distributed in the plant kingdom, whereas prenylated phenylpropenes are limited to a few plant species. In this study, we analysed theExpand

NDH-PSI Supercomplex Assembly Precedes Full Assembly of the NDH Complex in Chloroplast1
The chloroplast NDH complex is built up with the aid of an assembly factor, CRR3, triggering the NDH-PSI supercomplex formation via Lhca6 before the completion of the entire NDH assembly. TheExpand

Antimycin A-like molecules inhibit cyclic electron transport around photosystem I in ruptured chloroplasts☆
Antimycin A3 (AA) is used as an inhibitor of cyclic electron transport around photosystem I. However, the high concentrations of AA that are needed for inhibition have secondary effects, even inExpand

Synthetic studies on bradykinin antagonist martinellines: construction of a pyrrolo[3,2-c]quinoline skeleton using silicon-tether RCM reaction and allylic amination
The pyrrolo[3,2-c]quinoline consisting of a core structure of martinellines, the first naturally occurring heterocycle, was prepared through silicon-tether ring-closing metathesis reaction andExpand

CHLORORESPIRATORY REDUCTION 9 is a Novel Factor Required for Formation of Subcomplex A of the Chloroplast NADH Dehydrogenase-Like Complex.
In vascular plants, the chloroplast NADH dehydrogenase-like (NDH) complex, a homolog of respiratory NADH:quinone oxidoreductase (Complex I), mediates plastoquinone reduction using ferredoxin as anExpand

New synthesis of a pyrroloquinoline skeleton, the Martinelline core, using a tandem Michael-aldol strategy
The pyrroloquinoline moiety of Martinelline, a naturally occurring bradykinin receptor antagonist, has been synthesized from 1,2-dihydroquinoline which was prepared by using a tandem Michael-aldolExpand
