A molecular phylogeny of the Solanaceae
A phylogeny of Solanaceae is presented based on the chloroplast DNA regions ndhF and trnLF. With 89 genera and 190 species included, this represents a nearly comprehensive genus-level sampling andExpand

Cell death mediated by the N-terminal domains of a unique and highly conserved class of NB-LRR protein.
Plant genomes encode large numbers of nucleotide-binding, leucine-rich repeat (NB-LRR) proteins, many of which are active in pathogen detection and defense response induction. NB-LRR proteins fallExpand

The balance between isoforms of the prickle LIM domain protein is critical for planar polarity in Drosophila imaginal discs.
The tissue polarity mutants in Drosophila include a set of conserved gene products that appear to be involved in the control of cytoskeletal architecture. Here we show that the tissue polarity geneExpand

The Coiled-Coil and Nucleotide Binding Domains of the Potato Rx Disease Resistance Protein Function in Pathogen Recognition and Signaling[W][OA]
Plant genomes encode large numbers of nucleotide binding and leucine-rich repeat (NB-LRR) proteins, some of which mediate the recognition of pathogen-encoded proteins. Following recognition, theExpand

NB-LRRs work a "bait and switch" on pathogens.
Plant genomes encode large numbers of highly variable nucleotide binding leucine-rich repeat (NB-LRR) disease resistance proteins. These proteins have been studied extensively to understand theirExpand

A distant coilin homologue is required for the formation of cajal bodies in Arabidopsis.
Cajal bodies (CBs) are subnuclear bodies that are widespread in eukaryotes, being found in mammals, many other vertebrates and in all plant species so far examined. They are mobile structures,Expand

Arabidopsis POT1A interacts with TERT-V(I8), an N-terminal splicing variant of telomerase
Chromosome integrity is maintained via the actions of ribonucleoprotein complexes that can add telomeric repeats or can protect the chromosome end from being degraded. POT1 (protection of telomeresExpand

Structural Basis for the Interaction between the Potato Virus X Resistance Protein (Rx) and Its Cofactor Ran GTPase-activating Protein 2 (RanGAP2)*
Background: The interaction of the potato disease resistance protein Rx with RanGAP2 is important for virus resistance. Results: The crystal structure of the complex of the Rx and RanGAP2 N-terminalExpand

Plant breeding for harmony between agriculture and the environment
Plant breeding programs primarily focus on improving a crop's environmental adaptability and biotic stress tolerance in order to increase yield. Crop improvements made since the 1950s – coupled withExpand
