New developments in fiber hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) breeding
Fiber hemp (Cannabis sativa L.) is a sustainable and high yielding industrial crop that can help to meet the high global demand for fibers. Hemp can be grown for fiber, seeds, and/or for dual purposeExpand
The Cellulase KORRIGAN Is Part of the Cellulose Synthase Complex1[W]
An endo-1,4-b-D-glucanase is part of the primary cell wall cellulose synthase complex (CSC) in the plasma membrane and plays a role in the trafficking of the CSC. Plant growth and organ formationExpand
Complexes with Mixed Primary and Secondary Cellulose Synthases Are Functional in Arabidopsis Plants1[C][W]
In higher plants, cellulose is synthesized by so-called rosette protein complexes with cellulose synthases (CESAs) as catalytic subunits of the complex. The CESAs are divided into two distinctExpand
Interactions between membrane‐bound cellulose synthases involved in the synthesis of the secondary cell wall
MINT‐6951199: CESA8 (uniprotkb:Q8LPK5) physically interacts (MI:0218) with CESA8 (uniprotkb:Q8LPK5) by bimolecular fluorescence complementation (MI:0809)
Functional analysis of the transcriptional activator XlnR from Aspergillus niger.
The transcriptional activator XlnR from Aspergillus niger is a zinc binuclear cluster transcription factor that belongs to the GAL4 superfamily. Several putative structural domains in XlnR wereExpand
The potential of C4 grasses for cellulosic biofuel production
With the advent of biorefinery technologies enabling plant biomass to be processed into biofuel, many researchers set out to study and improve candidate biomass crops. Many of these candidates are C4Expand
Single-tube linear DNA amplification (LinDA) for robust ChIP-seq
Genome-wide profiling of transcription factors based on massive parallel sequencing of immunoprecipitated chromatin (ChIP-seq) requires nanogram amounts of DNA. Here we describe a high-fidelity,Expand
Progress on Optimizing Miscanthus Biomass Production for the European Bioeconomy: Results of the EU FP7 Project OPTIMISC
This paper describes the complete findings of the EU-funded research project OPTIMISC, which investigated methods to optimize the production and use of miscanthus biomass. Miscanthus bioenergy andExpand
A potato tuber-expressed mRNA with homology to steroid dehydrogenases affects gibberellin levels and plant development.
Using cDNA-AFLP RNA fingerprinting throughout potato tuber development, we have isolated a transcript-derived fragment (TDF511) with strong homology to plant steroid dehydrogenases. During in vitroExpand
Drought stress tolerance strategies revealed by RNA-Seq in two sorghum genotypes with contrasting WUE
BackgroundDrought stress is the major environmental stress that affects plant growth and productivity. It triggers a wide range of responses detectable at molecular, biochemical and physiologicalExpand
