A novel gene for alternative oxidase (AOX) was isolated from rice (Oryza sativa L.) and characterized. The deduced amino acid sequence of the novel AOX gene contains features that are conserved among other AOXs. This AOX gene was designated AOX1c based on a phylogenetic analysis of the AOX genes. Northern hybridization analyses revealed that AOX1c and AOX1a/AOX1b transcripts accumulated differently in various rice organs and rice seedlings under low temperature conditions. AOX1c mRNA was mainly… Expand
Differential expression and co-regulation of carrot AOX genes (Daucus carota).
TLDR
The results demonstrate that all of the four carrot AOX genes are expressed and strengthen the value of carrot as a model plant for future studies on the importance of AOX sub family evolution. Expand
Identification in Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp. of two cDNAs encoding mitochondrial alternative oxidase orthologous to soybean alternative oxidase genes 2a and 2b
TLDR
The pattern of expression of the two V. unguiculata Aox genes, described here for the first time, is shown to be similar to that of the orthologous genes found in soybean. Expand
The maize alternative oxidase 1a (Aox1a) gene is regulated by signals related to oxidative stress
TLDR
It is shown that multiple signaling pathways, involved in stress responses, also participate and differentially regulate Aox1a and GstI in maize and a ROS-depended signaling event may be involved, suggesting an essential role of A ox1a under oxidative stress in maize. Expand
Influence of irradiation on cyanide-resistant respiration and AOX1 multi-gene family expression during greening of etiolated rice seedlings
TLDR
During initial greening steps of the plants, the induction of alternative pathway and AOX1 expression by irradiation is not directly linked with carbon assimilation of photosynthesis, indicating that Chl synthesis in the process of greening might be medicated to some extent by alternative respiratory pathway. Expand
Influence of irradiation on cyanide-resistant respiration and AOX1 multi-gene family expression during greening of etiolated rice seedlings
We investigated the differential expression of AOX1 multi-gene family and the regulation of alternative respiratory pathway during initial greening development in leaves of rice (Oryza sativa L.)Expand
Alternative oxidase (AOX) constitutes a small family of proteins in Citrus clementina and Citrus sinensis L. Osb
TLDR
The present study aimed to characterize the family of AOX genes in mandarin and sweet orange at nucleotide and protein levels, including promoter analysis, phylogenetic analysis and C. sinensis gene expression and modeled one AOX isoform by homology to the AOX of Trypanosona brucei. Expand
Characterization of two non-homoeologous nuclear genes encoding mitochondrial alternative oxidase in common wheat.
TLDR
Two non-homoeologous genes (Waox1a and Waox1c) encoding AOX proteins from common wheat were isolated, and the steady-state level of Waox 1a andWaox 1c transcripts increased under cold stress, while only that of Wa ox1a was increased by cyanide treatment. Expand
Alternative oxidases in Arabidopsis: a comparative analysis of differential expression in the gene family provides new insights into function of non-phosphorylating bypasses.
TLDR
Analysis of genes co-expressed with Aoxs from studies of responses to various treatments altering mitochondrial functions and/or from plants with altered Aox levels reveals that this gene set encodes more functions outside the mitochondrion than functions in mitochondria. Expand
A classification scheme for alternative oxidases reveals the taxonomic distribution and evolutionary history of the enzyme in angiosperms.
TLDR
A model for the evolutionary history of AOX in angiosperms is presented and specific areas where further research would be most beneficial are highlighted, suggesting a complementary role with an AOX1(a) in stress conditions. Expand
Aox gene structure, transcript variation and expression in plants.
TLDR
The hypothesis that organization of genomic Aox sequences and gene expression patterns are highly variable in relation to the possibility that such a variation may allow development of Aox functional markers in plants is examined. Expand

Characterization of the gene family for alternative oxidase from Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
Analysis of the copy number of the gene for alternative oxidase (AOX) of Arabidopsis thaliana by amplification by PCR and Southern hybridization and comparison between genomic and cDNA sequences showed that all AOX genes are divided by three introns and the positions of the introns in AOX1a, Aox1b, AOx1c and AOX2 are the same.

Transcript levels of tandem-arranged alternative oxidase genes in rice are increased by low temperature.
TLDR
A genomic Southern hybridization analysis indicated that rice has several Aox genes other than the two tandem-arranged AOX genes, and no difference in the pattern of induction of transcription between the genes for AOX1a and AOx1b was observed. Expand
The gene for alternative oxidase-2 (AOX2) from Arabidopsis thaliana consists of five exons unlike other AOX genes and is transcribed at an early stage during germination.
TLDR
Investigation of expressions of genes for alternative oxidase and genes for cytochrome c oxidase during germination of Arabidopsis thaliana found that the AOX2 protein is imported into the mitochondria, different from the case of most AOX genes identified so far. Expand
Differential Expression of the Multigene Family Encoding the Soybean Mitochondrial Alternative Oxidase
The alternative oxidase (AOX) of the soybean (Glycine max L.) inner mitochondrial membrane is encoded by a multigene family (Aox) with three known members. Here, the Aox2 and Aox3 primary translationExpand
Differential expression of alternative oxidase genes in soybean cotyledons during postgerminative development
TLDR
The expression of the alternative oxidase (AOX) was investigated during cotyledon development in soybean seedlings, showing a different developmental trend in mRNA abundance, such that the increase in AOX protein and capacity appears to involve a shift in gene expression from AOX2 to AOX3. Expand

The first report on the analysis of alternative oxidase at the molecular level during the ripening of a climacteric fruit is reported, indicating that this cDNA encodes a mango homologue of theAlternative oxidase. Expand
