Genomes of 'Candidatus Liberibacter solanacearum' Haplotype A from New Zealand and the United States Suggest Significant Genome Plasticity in the Species.
TLDR
Differences in genome arrangements, prophage, and qPCR results suggesting locus diversity within the haplotypes provide more evidence for genetic complexity in this emerging bacterial species.
Staying green postharvest: how three mutations in the Arabidopsis chlorophyll b reductase gene NYC1 delay degreening by distinct mechanisms.
TLDR
This non-synonymous amino acid change, which occurred in the NADPH binding domain of NYC1, is the first example of such a mutation in an SDR protein inhibiting a physiological response in plants.
Carbon Deprivation-Driven Transcriptome Reprogramming in Detached Developmentally Arresting Arabidopsis Inflorescences1[C][W][OA]
TLDR
The results suggest that the response of detached immature tissues to dark storage involves interactions between carbohydrate status sensing and light deprivation signaling and that the dark-adaptive response of the tissues appears to utilize some of the same key regulators as developmental senescence.
Identification of Postharvest Senescence Regulators Through Map-Based Cloning Using Detached Arabidopsis Inflorescences as a Model Tissue.
TLDR
A novel assay system called AIDA (the Arabidopsis Inflorescence Degreening Assay) is introduced that is developed for understanding postharvest response of immature tissues and can be used with mapping technologies to identify regulators of postHarvest senescence in ethyl methanesulfonate (EMS) mutagenized plant populations.
