Phenylalanine Biosynthesis in Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
In silico data mining, it is suggested that there are six PDT-like homologues in Arabidopsis that are provisionally classified as arogenate dehydratases and designated ADT1–ADT6. Expand
The overwintering physiology of the emerald ash borer, Agrilus planipennis fairmaire (coleoptera: buprestidae).
TLDR
The cold tolerance strategy and mechanisms involved in the cold tolerance of the emerald ash borer were investigated, and seasonal changes in these mechanisms monitored. Expand
Biochemical characterization of the suberization-associated anionic peroxidase of potato.
TLDR
The anionic peroxidase associated with the suberization response in potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) tubers during wound healing has been purified and partially characterized at the biochemical level and shows a preference for feruloyl (o-methoxyphenol)-substituted substrates such as those that accumulate in tubers During wound healing. Expand
Towards the specification of consecutive steps in macromolecular lignin assembly.
TLDR
Time course analyses of extracellular metabolites leading up to polymer formation reveal that coniferyl alcohol, but not p-coumaryl alcohol, undergoes substantial coupling reactions to give various lignans, which adds a new perspective to the lignin assembly mechanism. Expand
The outermost cuticle of soybean seeds: chemical composition and function during imbibition.
TLDR
It is shown that the outermost cuticle of the seed coat has an unusual chemical composition, lacking typical mid-chain-hydroxylated fatty acids but being relatively rich in other types of hydroxylate fatty acids. Expand
Use of TLC‐FID and GC‐MS/FID to examine the effects of migratory state, diet and captivity on preen wax composition in White‐throated Sparrows Zonotrichia albicollis
TLDR
It is suggested that among its many functions, preen wax may play a role in drag reduction by affecting the physical properties of feathers, and/or the fluid flow at their surfaces. Expand
Soybean Root Suberin: Anatomical Distribution, Chemical Composition, and Relationship to Partial Resistance to Phytophthora sojae 1[W][OA]
TLDR
The anatomical distribution and chemical composition of soybean root suberin as well as its relationship to partial resistance to P. sojae are described. Expand
Twin anchors of the soybean isoflavonoid metabolon: evidence for tethering of the complex to the endoplasmic reticulum by IFS and C4H.
TLDR
The existence of the long-postulated isoflavonoid metabolon is confirmed by identifying elements of the complex, their subcellular localizations and their interactions, and several candidates that are associated with GmIFS2, an isoform of IFS, in soybean hairy roots are identified. Expand
Phenylpropanoid Metabolism Induced by Wounding and Insect Herbivory
TLDR
In defining plant/herbivore-specific variations in phenylpropanoid metabolism, the underlying strategies used by plants to defend themselves will be discovered and insights into the role(s) of phenyl Propanoids in these processes are gained. Expand
Hydroxycinnamic Acid-derived Polymers Constitute the Polyaromatic Domain of Suberin (*)
TLDR
First direct evidence for the nature of the phenolic domain of suberin is provided and it is reported here that it is almost exclusively comprised of a covalently linked, hydroxycinnamic acid-derived polymeric matrix. Expand
