The Plant Proteomics Database (PPDB; http://ppdb.tc.cornell.edu), launched in 2004, provides an integrated resource for experimentally identified proteins in Arabidopsis and maize (Zea mays). Internal BLAST alignments link maize and Arabidopsis information. Experimental identification is based on in-house mass spectrometry (MS) of cell type-specific(More)
A growing body of evidence indicates that nitric oxide (NO) plays important signaling roles in plants. However, the enzyme(s) responsible for its synthesis after infection was unknown. Here, we demonstrate that the pathogen-induced, NO-synthesizing enzyme is a variant form of the P protein of glycine decarboxylase (GDC). Inhibitors of the P protein of GDC(More)
The ClpP peptidase is a major constituent of the proteolytic machinery of bacteria and organelles. The chloroplast ClpP complex is unusual, in that it associates a large number of subunits, one of which (ClpP1) is encoded in the chloroplast, the others in the nucleus. The complexity of these large hetero-oligomeric complexes has been a major difficulty in(More)
