Characterizing the stress/defense transcriptome of Arabidopsis
TLDR
The stress cDNA collection comprises a broad repertoire of stress-responsive genes encoding proteins that are involved in both the initial and subsequent stages of the physiological response to abiotic stress and pathogens. Expand
Growth and Photosynthesis under High and Low Irradiance of Arabidopsis thaliana Antisense Mutants with Reduced Ribulose-1,5-Bisphosphate Carboxylase/Oxygenase Activase Content
TLDR
Wt Arabidopsis does not contain Rubisco activase in great excess of the amount required for optimal growth, and the antisense plants attained similar values of relative rates of growth and leaf elongation by 21 d after planting. Expand
A sense of self: the role of DNA sequence elimination in allopolyploidization.

  • 1 August 2001
Polyploid organisms contain a number of chromosomes that is some multiple of x (basic chromosome number) greater than the 2 x content of related diploid species. [Winkler (1916)][1] introduced theExpand
Timing of ozone stress and resulting status of ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase and associated net photosynthesis
TLDR
Changes in Rubisco were associated with a decline in net photosynthesis (A) and that these effects preceded the observed reduction in foliar conductance and supported the hypothesis that O3 effects on A were associatedWith CO2-fixing capability of the leaf. Expand
Apical Bud Formation and Dormancy Induction in Poplar

  • The Plant Cell Online
  • 1 August 2007
The period of winter dormancy in woody perennial plants growing in the temperate zone is initiated during bud development in autumn. Regulation of autumnal bud development involves orchestrating theExpand
Biochemical and molecular basis for impairment of photosynthetic potential
TLDR
Evidence is presented that ozone may induce oxidative modification ofRubisco leading to subsequent proteolysis, and plants exposed to ozone sustain reduction in rbcS, the mRNA for the small subunit of Rubisco, which may lead to a reduced potential for synthesis of the protein. Expand
Chitin Signaling in Plants: Insights into the Perception of Fungal Pathogens and Rhizobacterial Symbionts
  • N. Eckardt
  • Biology, Medicine
  • The Plant Cell Online
  • 1 February 2008
In addition to the R gene–mediated pathways of plant resistance to specific pathogens, plants have the capacity to recognize a number of microbial surface-derived molecules, which elicit a generalExpand
Cytoplasmic Male Sterility and Fertility Restoration
  • N. Eckardt
  • Biology
  • The Plant Cell Online
  • 1 March 2006
Cytoplasmic male sterility (CMS), a condition under which a plant is unable to produce functional pollen, is widespread among higher plants. CMS systems represent a valuable tool in the production ofExpand
Heat Denaturation Profiles of Ribulose-1,5-Bisphosphate Carboxylase/Oxygenase (Rubisco) and Rubisco Activase and the Inability of Rubisco Activase to Restore Activity of Heat-Denatured Rubisco
TLDR
It is concluded that Rubisco activase alone does not have the ability to restore the activity of heat-denatured Rubisco and is unlikely to protect or restore Rubisco activity from heat denaturation in vivo because it is more heat-labile than Rubisco. Expand
Plant Disease Susceptibility Genes?
  • N. Eckardt
  • Biology, Medicine
  • The Plant Cell Online
  • 1 September 2002
A recent search of the ISI Web of Science identified 524 documents related to “plant disease resistance” and just 1 match for the phrase “plant disease susceptibility.” This does not mean thatExpand
