A chloroplast envelope-bound PHD transcription factor mediates chloroplast signals to the nucleus.
Chloroplast development, maintenance and function depend on the coordinated expression of chloroplast and nuclear genes. The retrograde chloroplast signals are essential in coordinating nuclear geneExpand

Nitric Oxide Functions as a Signal in Salt Resistance in the Calluses from Two Ecotypes of Reed1
Calluses from two ecotypes of reed (Phragmites communis Trin.) plant (dune reed [DR] and swamp reed [SR]), which show different sensitivity to salinity, were used to study plant adaptations to saltExpand

Increased sensitivity to salt stress in an ascorbate-deficient Arabidopsis mutant.
The Arabidopsis thaliana ascorbate-deficient vtc-1 mutant has only 30% ascorbate contents of the wild type (WT). This ascorbate-deficient mutant was used here to study the physiological roles ofExpand

Formation of DEG5 and DEG8 Complexes and Their Involvement in the Degradation of Photodamaged Photosystem II Reaction Center D1 Protein in Arabidopsis
The widely distributed DEGP proteases play important roles in the degradation of damaged and misfolded proteins. Arabidopsis thaliana contains 16 DEGP-like proteases, four of which are located in theExpand

Protective effect of nitric oxide on iron deficiency-induced oxidative stress in maize (Zea mays).
The effects of nitric oxide (NO) in protecting maize (Zea mays) leaves against iron deficiency-induced oxidative stress were investigated. The increased contents of hydrogen peroxide (H(2)O(2)) andExpand

Site-Specific Nitrosoproteomic Identification of Endogenously S-Nitrosylated Proteins in Arabidopsis1
Proteome-wide identification of S-nitrosylated proteins in Arabidopsis by nitrosoproteomic analysis reveals the involvement of S-nitrosylation in diverse signaling pathways. Nitric oxide (NO)Expand

Chloroplast Small Heat Shock Protein HSP21 Interacts with Plastid Nucleoid Protein pTAC5 and Is Essential for Chloroplast Development in Arabidopsis under Heat Stress[W]
The molecular mechanisms by which sHSPs are involved in cell protection remain unknown. This study reports that chloroplast HSP21 is essential for chloroplast development by maintainingExpand

The Stromal Chloroplast Deg7 Protease Participates in the Repair of Photosystem II after Photoinhibition in Arabidopsis1[W][OA]
Light is the ultimate source of energy for photosynthesis; however, excessive light leads to photooxidative damage and hence reduced photosynthetic efficiency, especially when combined with otherExpand

A Psb27 homologue in Arabidopsis thaliana is required for efficient repair of photodamaged photosystem II
Psb27 has been identified as a lumenal protein associated with photosystem II (PSII). To gain insight into the function of Psb27, we isolated a mutant Arabidopsis plant with a loss of psb27 function.Expand

Retracted: LPA2 Is Required for Efficient Assembly of Photosystem II in Arabidopsis thaliana
Biogenesis and assembly of photosystem II is mainly regulated by nuclear-encoded factors. This work reports the identification of a nuclear-encoded factor LPA2 that is involved in efficientExpand
