Elevated expression of metal transporter genes in three accessions of the metal hyperaccumulator Thlaspi caerulescens
Heavy metal hyperaccumulation in plants is an intriguing and poorly understood phenomenon. Transmembrane metal transporters are assumed to play a key role in this process. We describe the cloning andExpand

BOLITA, an Arabidopsis AP2/ERF-like transcription factor that affects cell expansion and proliferation/differentiation pathways
The BOLITA (BOL) gene, an AP2/ERF transcription factor, was characterized with the help of an activation tag mutant and overexpression lines in Arabidopsis and tobacco. The leaf size of plantsExpand

Characterization of oil palm MADS box genes in relation to the mantled flower abnormality
In vitro propagation of oil palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.) frequently induces a somaclonal variant called ‘mantled’ abnormality, in which the stamens of both male and female flowers are transformedExpand
