A Gateway Cloning Vector Set for High-Throughput Functional Analysis of Genes in Planta[w]
The current challenge, now that two plant genomes have been sequenced, is to assign a function to the increasing number of predicted genes. In Arabidopsis, approximately 55% of genes can be assignedExpand

A Versatile and Reliable Two-Component System for Tissue-Specific Gene Induction in Arabidopsis1[W]
Developmental progression and differentiation of distinct cell types depend on the regulation of gene expression in space and time. Tools that allow spatial and temporal control of gene expressionExpand

The promoter of the plant defensin gene PDF1.2 from Arabidopsis is systemically activated by fungal pathogens and responds to methyl jasmonate but not to salicylic acid
The plant defensin PDF1.2 has previously been shown to accumulate systemically via a salicylic acid-independent pathway in leaves of Arabidopsis upon challenge by fungal pathogens. To furtherExpand

Apomixis technology development—virgin births in farmers' fields?
Apomixis is the process of asexual reproduction through seed, in the absence of meiosis and fertilization, generating clonal progeny of maternal origin. Major benefits to agriculture could resultExpand

Disruption of AtMRP4, a guard cell plasma membrane ABCC-type ABC transporter, leads to deregulation of stomatal opening and increased drought susceptibility.
ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters are membrane proteins responsible for cellular detoxification processes in plants and animals. Recent evidence shows that this class of transporters may alsoExpand

Intronic regulatory elements determine the divergent expression patterns of AGAMOUS-LIKE6 subfamily members in Arabidopsis.
The screening of enhancer detector lines in Arabidopsis thaliana has identified genes that are specifically expressed in the sporophytic tissue of the ovule. One such gene is the MADS-domainExpand

Molecular control of autonomous embryo and endosperm development
Precocious seed development is usually prevented by a series of mechanisms that ensure seed production results from double fertilization. These events are circumvented in natural apomictic plantExpand

Molecular evidence that diploid Stylosanthes humilis and diploid Stylosanthes hamata are progenitors of allotetraploid Stylosanthes hamata cv. Verano.
Restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis, using peroxidase, O-methyltransferase, phenylalanine ammonia-lyase, and coniferyl alcohol dehydrogenase cDNAs isolated from Stylosanthes humilis, asExpand

Investigation of the specificity of the interaction between colicin E9 and its immunity protein by site‐directed mutagenesis
Comparison of the amino acid sequences of the C‐terminal domain of three DNAase type E colicins has identified six candidate specificity determinants for the interaction of these E colicins withExpand

The angiosperm female gametophyte : No longer the forgotten generation
The plant life cycle alternates between the diploid sporophyte (spore-producing organism) and the hap- loid gametophyte (gamete-producing organism). The female gametophyte of flowering plantsExpand
