Characterization of the four genes encoding cytoplasmic ribosomal protein S15a in Arabidopsis thaliana
Eukaryotic cytosolic ribosomes are composed of two distinct subunits consisting of four individual ribosomal RNAs and, in Arabidopsis thaliana, 81 ribosomal proteins. Functional subunit assembly is dependent on the production ...
The role of cytosolic glutamine synthetases in abiotic stress and development in Arabidopsis thaliana
Glutamine (Gln), a major nitrogen source in plants, is considered a central intermediate that coordinates carbon-nitrogen assembly for plant growth and development. To maintain a sufficient Gln supply, plant cells employ ...
Investigating the role and activity of CC-Type glutaredoxins in the redox regulation of TGA1/TGA4 in Arabidopsis thaliana
Plants respond to and defend themselves against a wide range of disease-causing microbes. In order to do so, massive reprogramming of cellular protein expression patterns, which underpin various defense pathways, must ...
Characterization of regulation of expression and nuclear/nucleolar localization of Arabidopsis ribsomal proteins
Ribosomal proteins (RPs), synthesized in the cytoplasm, need to be transported from the cytoplasm to the nucleolus (a nuclear compartment), where a single molecule of each RP assembles with rRNAs to form the large and small ...
Characterization of the two genes encoding cytoplasmic ribosomal protein L23a in Arabidopsis thaliana
RPL23a is one of the ~80 ribosomal proteins (r-proteins) of the cytoplasmic ribosome in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana. The objectives of this research were to establish Arabidopsis RPL23a as a functional r-protein, ...
Regulation of Arabidopsis TGA transcription factors by cysteine residues : implication for redox control
The Arabidopsis TGA family of basic leucine zipper transcription factors regulate the expression of pathogenesis-related genes and are required for resistance to disease. Members of the family possess diverse properties ...
