Metabolite profiling for plant functional genomics
Multiparallel analyses of mRNA and proteins are central to today's functional genomics initiatives. We describe here the use of metabolite profiling as a new tool for a comparative display of geneExpand

Vitamin E Protects against Photoinhibition and Photooxidative Stress in Arabidopsis thaliana
Vitamin E is considered a major antioxidant in biomembranes, but little evidence exists for this function in plants under photooxidative stress. Leaf discs of two vitamin E mutants, a tocopherolExpand

Isolation of an Arabidopsis mutant lacking vitamin E and identification of a cyclase essential for all tocopherol biosynthesis
Tocopherol (vitamin E) is a plant chloroplast lipid presumed to be involved in the response to oxidative stress. A tocopherol-deficient mutant (vte1) was isolated from Arabidopsis thaliana by using aExpand

Galactolipids rule in seed plants.
Chloroplast membranes contain high levels of the galactolipids monogalactosyldiacylglycerol (MGDG) and digalactosyldiacylglycerol (DGDG). The isolation of the genes involved in the biosynthesis ofExpand

Disruption of the Two Digalactosyldiacylglycerol Synthase Genes DGD1 and DGD2 in Arabidopsis Reveals the Existence of an Additional Enzyme of Galactolipid Synthesis Article, publication date, and
Two genes (DGD1 and DGD2) are involved in the synthesis of the chloroplast lipid digalactosyldiacylglycerol (DGDG). The role of DGD2 for galactolipid synthesis was studied by isolating ArabidopsisExpand

Tocopherol Cyclase (VTE1) Localization and Vitamin E Accumulation in Chloroplast Plastoglobule Lipoprotein Particles*
Chloroplasts contain lipoprotein particles termed plastoglobules. Plastoglobules are generally believed to have little function beyond lipid storage. Here we report on the identification ofExpand

Arabidopsis CURVATURE THYLAKOID1 Proteins Modify Thylakoid Architecture by Inducing Membrane Curvature[W]
Here, we characterize a protein family that forms a complex by oligomerization, which is required for bending of the thylakoid membrane. Without this complex, the typical thylakoid ultrastructure ofExpand

Phospholipase C5 (NPC5) is involved in galactolipid accumulation during phosphate limitation in leaves of Arabidopsis.
The replacement of phospholipids by galacto- and sulfolipids in plant membranes represents an important adaptive process for growth on phosphate-limiting soils. Gene expression and lipid analysesExpand

Characterization and Biological Function of the ISOCHORISMATE SYNTHASE2 Gene of Arabidopsis1[OA]
Salicylic acid (SA) is an important mediator of plant defense response. In Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana), this compound was proposed to derive mainly from isochorismate, itself produced fromExpand
