Characterization of the gene family for alternative oxidase from Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
Analysis of the copy number of the gene for alternative oxidase (AOX) of Arabidopsis thaliana by amplification by PCR and Southern hybridization and comparison between genomic and cDNA sequences showed that all AOX genes are divided by three introns and the positions of the introns in AOX1a, Aox1b, AOx1c and AOX2 are the same.

Conservation and diversification of meristem maintenance mechanism in Oryza sativa: Function of the FLORAL ORGAN NUMBER2 gene.
TLDR
Results clearly indicate that the FON1-FON2 system in rice corresponds to the CLV signaling system in Arabidopsis and suggest that the negative regulation of stem cell identity by these systems may be principally conserved in a wide range of plants within the Angiosperms. Expand
A membrane trafficking pathway regulated by the plant-specific RAB GTPase ARA6
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a plant-unique RAB5 protein, ARA6, acts in an endosomal trafficking pathway in Arabidopsis thaliana and provides the first indication of a functional link between a specific RAB and a specific SNARE complex in plants. Expand
Arabidopsis dynamin-related proteins DRP2B and DRP1A participate together in clathrin-coated vesicle formation during endocytosis
TLDR
It is suggested that DRP2B and DRP1A participate together in endocytic CCV formation in Arabidopsis cells despite the difference of their molecular properties. Expand
Identification of the OsOPR7 gene encoding 12-oxophytodienoate reductase involved in the biosynthesis of jasmonic acid in rice
TLDR
Evidence is provided that an OPR family gene in rice chromosome 8, designated OsOPR7, encodes the enzyme catalysing the reduction of natural (+)-cis-OPDA for the JA biosynthesis in rice and that JA production in the opr3 mutant was also restored by the expression of the OsopR7 gene. Expand
Ethylene promotes submergence-induced expression of OsABA8ox1, a gene that encodes ABA 8'-hydroxylase in rice.
TLDR
The level of phaseic acid (PA), an oxidized form of ABA, increased with decreasing ABA level during submergence, indicating that the rapid decrease in ABA levels in submerged rice shoots is controlled partly by ethylene-induced expression of OsABA8ox1 and partly by Ethylene-independent suppression of genes involved in the biosynthetic genes. Expand
Identification of genes expressed in maize root cortical cells during lysigenous aerenchyma formation using laser microdissection and microarray analyses.
TLDR
These genes included genes related to the generation or scavenging of reactive oxygen species, Ca(2+) signaling, and cell wall loosening and degradation, which should lead to a better understanding of the mechanism of root lysigenous aerenchyma formation. Expand
Expression of a gene encoding mitochondrial aldehyde dehydrogenase in rice increases under submerged conditions.
TLDR
Experiments with ruthenium red, which is a blocker of Ca(2+) fluxes in rice as well as maize, suggest that the induction of expression of Adh1 and Pdc1 by low oxygen stress is regulated by elevation of the cytosolic Ca( 2+) level, but a possible involvement of ALDH2a in the submergence tolerance of rice is discussed. Expand
OsNAC6, a member of the NAC gene family, is induced by various stresses in rice.
TLDR
The results imply that OsNAC6, besides having a role in plant adaptation to abiotic stresses, also integrates signals derived from both abiotic and biotic stresses. Expand
Cell cycle function of a rice B2-type cyclin interacting with a B-type cyclin-dependent kinase.
TLDR
Overexpression of CycB2;2 in rice plants resulted in acceleration of root growth without any increase in cell size, indicating thatCycB 2;2 promoted cell division probably through association with CDKB2 in the root meristem. Expand
