Methylated Cytokinins from the Phytopathogen Rhodococcus fascians Mimic Plant Hormone Activity1[OPEN]
Methylated cytokinins contribute to pathogenesis as hormone-mimics. Cytokinins (CKs), a class of phytohormones that regulate plant growth and development, are also synthesized by some phytopathogensExpand

Metabolomic profiling of 13C-labelled cellulose digestion in a lower termite: insights into gut symbiont function
Termites consume an estimated 3–7 billion tonnes of lignocellulose annually, a role in nature which is unique for a single order of invertebrates. Their food is digested with the help of microbialExpand

3-Deoxy-d-arabino-heptulosonate 7-phosphate synthase is regulated for the accumulation of polysaccharide-linked hydroxycinnamoyl esters in rice (Oryza sativa L.) internode cell walls
Polysaccharide-linked hydroxycinnamoyl esters (PHEs) over-accumulate in the internodes of a rice (Oryza sativa L.) mutant, Fukei 71 (F71). This accumulation is accompanied by over-expression ofExpand

Top-down Phenomics of Arabidopsis thaliana
Elucidating the function of each gene in a genome is important for understanding the whole organism. We previously constructed 4000 disruptant mutants of Arabidopsis by insertion of Ds transposons.Expand

Exploring the conformational space of amorphous cellulose using NMR chemical shifts.
(13)C-labeled amorphous cellulose and (13)C NMR chemical shifts by 2D (13)C-(13)C correlation spectroscopy were obtained in the regenerated solid-state from ionic liquids. On the basis of theExpand

The ectopic expression of phenylalanine ammonia lyase with ectopic accumulation of polysaccharide-linked hydroxycinnamoyl esters in internode parenchyma of rice mutant Fukei 71
Both polysaccharide-linked hydroxycinnamoyl esters (PHEs) and lignin are biosynthesized via the phenylpropanoid pathway. In the abnormal internode parenchyma of the rice (Oryza sativa L.) mutantExpand
