The role of electrical and jasmonate signalling in the recognition of captured prey in the carnivorous sundew plant Drosera capensis.
The carnivorous sundew plant (Drosera capensis) captures prey using sticky tentacles. We investigated the tentacle and trap reactions in response to the electrical and jasmonate signalling evoked byExpand

Feeding on prey increases photosynthetic efficiency in the carnivorous sundew Drosera capensis.
UNLABELLED BACKROUND AND AIMS: It has been suggested that the rate of net photosynthesis (AN) of carnivorous plants increases in response to prey capture and nutrient uptake; however, data confirmingExpand

A carnivorous sundew plant prefers protein over chitin as a source of nitrogen from its traps.
Carnivorous plants have evolved in nutrient-poor wetland habitats. They capture arthropod prey, which is an additional source of plant growth limiting nutrients. One of them is nitrogen, which occursExpand

The Photoconvertible Fluorescent Protein Dendra2 Tag as a Tool to Investigate Intracellular Protein Dynamics.
Fluorescence proteins changing spectral properties after exposure to light with a specific wavelength have recently become outstanding aids in the study of intracellular protein dynamics. Herein weExpand

Endosidin 2 accelerates PIN2 endocytosis and disturbs intracellular trafficking of PIN2, PIN3, and PIN4 but not of SYT1
We established that Endosidin2 (ES2) affected the trafficking routes of both newly synthesized and endocytic pools of PIN-FORMED2 (PIN2) in Arabidopsis root epidermal cells. PIN2 populationsExpand
