Accumulation of glycinebetaine in rice plants that overexpress choline monooxygenase from spinach and evaluation of their tolerance to abiotic stress.
TLDR
It was concluded that CMO-expressing rice plants were not effective for accumulation of GB and improvement of productivity and the localization of spinach CMO and of endogenous BADHs might be different and/or the catalytic activity ofspin CMO in rice plants might be lower than it is in spinach.

Halotolerant Cyanobacterium Aphanothece halophyticaContains an Na+/H+ Antiporter, Homologous to Eukaryotic Ones, with Novel Ion Specificity Affected by C-terminal Tail*
TLDR
The results suggest that the ion specificity of an Na+/H+ antiporter is partly determined by the structural properties of the C-terminal tail, which was well exemplified in the case of A. halophytica. Expand
Enrichment of sugar content in melon fruits by hydrogen peroxide treatment.
TLDR
Exogenous hydrogen peroxide, applied to the soil, can increase the soluble sugar content of melon fruits and increase the photosynthetic activity and the activities of chloroplastic and cytosolic fructose-1,6-bisphosphatase, sucrose phosphate synthase and invertases. Expand
Salt enhances photosystem I content and cyclic electron flow via NAD(P)H dehydrogenase in the halotolerant cyanobacterium Aphanothece halophytica
TLDR
Results indicate that salt specifically induces an increase of protein levels involving cyclic electron flow around photosystem I that may entail an important role for adaptation of Aphanothece halophytica cells to high salinities. Expand
Overexpression of DnaK from a halotolerant cyanobacterium Aphanothece halophytica enhances the high-temperatue tolerance of tobacco during germination and early growth.
TLDR
Data indicate that the expression of DnaK1 from a halotolerant cyanobacterium A. halophytica improved the tolerance to high temperature during germination and early growth. Expand
Overproduction of spinach betaine aldehyde dehydrogenase in Escherichia coli. Structural and functional properties of wild-type, mutants and E. coli enzymes.
TLDR
The spinach E103K mutant was almost inactive, whereas the E103Q mutant showed a similar activity for the oxidation of betaine aldehyde to that of wild type BADH, but a lower affinity for omega-aminoaldehydes. Expand
Role of transit peptide sequence of plastocyanin for its expression, processing, and copper-binding activity in Escherichia coli.
TLDR
The addition of copper ions increased the holo-protein content, but did not change the polypeptide content of mature plastocyanin, indicating that translocation and processing are independent of the incorporation of Copper ions. Expand
Overexpression of DnaK from a halotolerant cyanobacterium Aphanothece halophytica enhances growth rate as well as abiotic stress tolerance of poplar plants
TLDR
The results suggest that ApDnaK could be useful to enhance the growth rate as well as to increase the stress tolerance of transformed poplar plants. Expand
Expression and characterization of Met92Gln mutant plastocyanin from Silene pratensis.
TLDR
Results indicate that the Met92Gln mutant of intermediate precursor plastocyanin exhibited "stellacyanin-like" spectroscopic properties, and proposes that the primarily function of Met as a copper-ligand is in the uptake of copper ions during folding rather than in electron-transfer activities. Expand
Reconstitution of mature plastocyanin from precursor apo-plastocyanin expressed in Escherichia coli.
TLDR
The precursor plastocyanin from Silene pratensis (white campion) has been expressed in Escherichia coli and N-terminal amino-acid sequencing indicated that the processed protein was identical to the N- terminal amino- acid residues of mature plastOCyanin that was deduced from the nucleotide sequence.
