The Last Step of Syringyl Monolignol Biosynthesis in Angiosperms Is Regulated by a Novel Gene Encoding Sinapyl Alcohol Dehydrogenase
The isolation of a novel aspen gene (PtSAD) encoding sinapyl alcohol dehydrogenase (SAD), which is phylogenetically distinct from aspen CAD, suggests that in addition to CAD, discrete SAD function is essential to the biosynthesis of syringyl monolignol in angiosperms. Expand
5-Hydroxyconiferyl Aldehyde Modulates Enzymatic Methylation for Syringyl Monolignol Formation, a New View of Monolignol Biosynthesis in Angiosperms*
Results provide conclusive evidence for the presence of a CAld5H/AldOMT-catalyzed coniferyl aldehyde 5-hydroxylation/methylation pathway that directs syringyl monolignol biosynthesis in angiosperms. Expand
Modification of photosystem II photochemistry in nitrogen deficient maize and wheat plants
Summary Modification of PSII photochemistry in nitrogen deficient maize and wheat plants was investigated. Fluorescence quenching analyses showed that nitrogen deficiency induced decreases in theExpand
A novel multifunctional O-methyltransferase implicated in a dual methylation pathway associated with lignin biosynthesis in loblolly pine.
The results support the notion that AEOMT represents a novel SAM-dependent OMT, with both CAOMT and CCoAOMT activities and thus the potential to mediate a dual methylation pathway in lignin biosynthesis in loblolly pine xylem. Expand
Clinical validation of the "in silico" prediction of immunogenicity of a human recombinant therapeutic protein.
In silico prediction can be successfully used to identify Class II restricted T-cell epitopes within therapeutic proteins and predict immunogenicity thereof in humans. Expand
Mapping QTLs for salt tolerance with additive, epistatic and QTL × treatment interaction effects at seedling stage in wheat
The results facilitate understanding the mechanisms and the genetic basis of salt tolerance in wheat and facilitate understanding of marker-assisted selection. Expand
The inhibited xanthophyll cycle is responsible for the increase in sensitivity to low temperature photoinhibition in rice leaves fed with glutathione
In vitro experiments using isolated thylakoids indicated that GSH is a weak inhibitor of violaxanthin deepoxidation, andalyses of antioxidant enzyme activities as well as the application of protein synthesis inhibitors revealed that the increased sensitivity to photoinhibition following GSH feeding was not related to its effect on cellular antioxidant systems.

Effects of insecticide acetamiprid on photosystem II (PSII) activity of Synechocystis sp. (FACHB-898)
Abstract Effects of insecticide acetamiprid on photosystem II (PSII) activity of Synechocystis sp. were investigated by a variety of in vivo chlorophyll fluorescence tests. Acetamiprid exposureExpand
Residual Stress Shakedown in Typical Weld Joints and Its Effect on Fatigue of FPSOs
Structural members of FPSO hulls often undergo fairly large static loading before they enter service or variable amplitude cyclic loading when they are in service. The combined effect of both appliedExpand
The photodamage process of pigments and proteins of PSI complexes fromSpinacia Oleracea L.
Purified PSI complexes fromSpinacia Oleracea L. were exposed to the strong light (PFD=2300 µmol m−2s−1) for various period. Along with the illumination the photo-damage process of pigments andExpand
