Nitric Oxide Represses the Arabidopsis Floral Transition
It is reported that nitric oxide repressed the floral transition in Arabidopsis thaliana and indicated that NO regulates the photoperiod and autonomous pathways. Expand
OSCA1 mediates osmotic-stress-evoked Ca2+ increases vital for osmosensing in Arabidopsis
A hyperosmolality-gated calcium-permeable channel is described and represents a channel responsible for [Ca2+]i increases induced by a stimulus in plants, opening up new avenues for studying Ca2+ machineries for other stimuli and providing potential molecular genetic targets for engineering drought-resistant crops.

A molecular pathway for CO₂ response in Arabidopsis guard cells.
Combining genetic, biochemical and electrophysiological evidence, this work reconstituted the molecular relay from CO₂ to SLAC1 activation, thus establishing a core pathway for CO⁂ signalling in plant guard cells. Expand
Proteomic analysis of the response to high-salinity stress in Physcomitrella patens
Several novel insights are outlined into the response of P. patens to high-salinity; HSP70 is likely to play a significant role in protecting proteins from denaturation and degradation during salinity stress, and signaling proteins, such as 14-3-3 and phototropin, may work cooperatively to regulate plasma membrane H+-ATPase and maintain ion homeostasis.

Proteomic analysis of the cold stress response in the moss, Physcomitrella patens
A proteomic study in the model moss, Physcomitrella patens, characterizing gametophore proteins with 2‐DE and mass spectroscopy points to pathways that are important for the mechanism of cold stress response in P. patens and by extension to the entire plant kingdom. Expand
Proteome analysis of Physcomitrella patens exposed to progressive dehydration and rehydration
The data indicate that Physcomitrella adopts a rapid protein response mechanism to cope with dehydration in its leafy-shoot and basal expression levels of desiccation-tolerant proteins are rapidly upgraded at high levels under stress, similar to that seen in angiosperm seeds. Expand

This is the first genome sequence of a Desiccation-tolerant extremophile, offering insight into the evolution of this important trait and a first look into the genome organization of desiccation tolerance. Expand
Transcriptome of Protoplasts Reprogrammed into Stem Cells in Physcomitrella patens
Data provides evidence that protoplasts of P. patens are an ideal model system for elucidation of the molecular mechanisms underlying differentiated plant cell reprogramming, and identified genes that show highly dynamic changes in expression during protoplast reprograming into stem cells in P. Patens. Expand
PIF3 Is Involved in the Primary Root Growth Inhibition of Arabidopsis Induced by Nitric Oxide in the Light
PIF3 may lie downstream of PHYB and RGL3, and regulate NO-induced root growth inhibition of Arabidopsis seedlings in light and regulates PIF3's activity in response to NO. Expand
Genome-wide transcriptome analysis of gametophyte development in Physcomitrella patens
These genes that show highly dynamic changes in expression during development in P. patens are potential targets for further functional characterization and evolutionary developmental biology studies. Expand
