Defective bone mineralization and osteopenia in young adult FGFR3-/- mice.
Mutations that cause constitutive activation of fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 (FGFR3) result in skeletal disorders that are characterized by short-limbed dwarfism and premature closure ofExpand
Defects in articular cartilage metabolism and early arthritis in fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 deficient mice.
Fibroblast growth factor (FGF) receptor 3 has been identified as a key regulator of endochondral bone development and of post-natal bone metabolism through its action on growth plate chondrocytes andExpand
Signalling by fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 and parathyroid hormone-related peptide coordinate cartilage and bone development.
Bone development is regulated by conserved signalling pathways that are linked to multifunctional growth factors and their high affinity receptors. Parathyroid hormone-related peptide (PTHrP) andExpand

ICE1 (inducer of CBF expression 1), a MYC-type bHLH transcription factor, is an important activator of CBF3/DREB1A for regulating cold signaling and stress tolerance. In this study, we isolated theExpand
AGC1.5 Kinase Phosphorylates RopGEFs to Control Pollen Tube Growth.
Double fertilization in angiosperms requires the targeted delivery of immotile sperm to the eggs through pollen tubes. The polarity of tip-growing pollen tubes is maintained through dynamicExpand
Effect of dry heating treatment on multi-levels of structure and physicochemical properties of maize starch: A thermodynamic study.
Dry heating treatment (DHT) is a common process widely used in food industry. In this study, the thermodynamic effects of DHT on starch structure and physicochemical properties are investigated. TheExpand
NRT1.1-Mediated Nitrate Suppression of Root Coiling Relies on PIN2- and AUX1-Mediated Auxin Transport
Asymmetric root growth (ARG) on tilted plates, or root coiling on horizontally placed plates, is proposed to be a combination of gravitropism, mechanical sensing, and “circumnutation,” a wordExpand
Arabidopsis PROTEIN S‐ACYL TRANSFERASE4 mediates root hair growth
Polar growth of root hairs is critical for plant survival and requires fine-tuned Rho of plants (ROP) signaling. Multiple ROP regulators participate in root hair growth. However, protein S-acylExpand
PLURIPETALA mediates ROP2 localization and stability in parallel to SCN1 but synergistically with TIP1 in root hairs.
Prenylation, the post-translational attachment of prenyl groups to substrate proteins, can affect their distribution and interactomes. Arabidopsis PLURIPETALA (PLP) encodes the shared α subunit ofExpand
S-acylation of CBL10/SCaBP8 by PAT10 is crucial for its tonoplast association and function in salt tolerance.
Protein S-acylation is a reversible post-translational modification that involves the addition of a 16-carbon saturated lipid group, usually a palmitate group, to cysteine residues of a substrateExpand
