Poplar Carbohydrate-Active Enzymes. Gene Identification and Expression Analyses1[W]
Over 1,600 genes encoding carbohydrate-active enzymes (CAZymes) in the Populus trichocarpa (Torr. & Gray) genome were identified based on sequence homology, annotated, and grouped into families ofExpand

A Cytosolic Pathway for the Conversion of Hydroxypyruvate to Glycerate during Photorespiration in Arabidopsis[W]
Deletion of any of the core enzymes of the photorespiratory cycle, one of the major pathways of plant primary metabolism, results in severe air-sensitivity of the respective mutants. The peroxisomalExpand

The chloroplast lumen and stromal proteomes of Arabidopsis thaliana show differential sensitivity to short- and long-term exposure to low temperature.
Cold acclimation and over-wintering by herbaceous plants are energetically expensive and are dependent on functional plastid metabolism. To understand how the stroma and the lumen proteomes adapt toExpand

UDP-Glucose Pyrophosphorylase. An Old Protein with New Tricks1
Sugars are central to a plant's raison d'etre as products of photosynthesis. They are the ultimate source of energy and carbon skeletons for all biomolecules, and they provide the material out ofExpand

Insensitivity of Barley Endosperm ADP-Glucose Pyrophosphorylase to 3-Phosphoglycerate and Orthophosphate Regulation
Crude extracts of starchy endosperm from barley (Hordeum vulgare cv Bomi) contained high pyrophosphorolytic activity (up to 0.5 [mu]mol of glucose-1-P formed min-1 mg-1 of protein) of ADP-glucoseExpand

A universal algorithm for genome-wide in silicio identification of biologically significant gene promoter putative cis-regulatory-elements; identification of new elements for reactive oxygen species
Short motifs of many cis-regulatory elements (CREs) can be found in the promoters of most Arabidopsis genes, and this raises the question of how their presence can confer specific regulation. WeExpand

Glucose activation and metabolism through UDP-glucose pyrophosphorylase in plants
Abstract Recent developments in studies on the characterization of properties and functions of UDP-glucose pyrophosphorylase (UGPase) in plant metabolism are pr

Sugars and light/dark exposure trigger differential regulation of ADP-glucose pyrophosphorylase genes in Arabidopsis thaliana (thale cress).
Expression of four Arabidopsis (thale cress) genes corresponding to the small (ApS) and large subunits (ApL1, ApL2, ApL3) of ADP-glucose pyrophosphorylase (AGPase), a key enzyme of starchExpand

Mechanisms of UDP-Glucose Synthesis in Plants
Substantial progress has been made in studies on enzymes synthesizing UDP-glucose (UDPG) which is essential for sucrose and cell wall biosynthesis, and in an array of other processes, e.g.Expand

Implications of adenylate kinase-governed equilibrium of adenylates on contents of free magnesium in plant cells and compartments.
On the basis of the equilibrium of adenylate kinase (AK; EC 2.7.4.3), which interconverts MgATP and free AMP with MgADP and free ADP, an approach has been worked out to calculate concentrations ofExpand
