Understanding the Physiological Significance of Ureide Transport Processes in Soybean (
The ureides allantoin and allantoic acid are the major long-distance forms of nitrogen (N) in nodulated tropical legumes like French bean (
Identifying Regulatory Components of Phytosterol Biosynthesis in the Genomics Era
The biosynthesis of sterol molecules is both ubiquitous and essential in the eukaryotic lineage. Despite our advanced knowledge of the structural genes and enzymes involved in phytosterol biosynthesis in Arabidopsis thaliana, ...
JASMONATE BIOSYNTHESIS AND SIGNALING IN THE BALANCE OF PLANT GROWTH AND DEFENSE
Jasmonic acid (JA) is a plant hormone that controls many aspects of growth, development, and defense. As a defense hormone JA is rapidly synthesized in response to wounding, or attack from herbivores and pathogens, triggering ...
Integrative approaches for understanding metabolism in plant specialized cell types
Plants contain specialized tissues/cell types that play important roles in the synthesis of many natural products. Investigation at cell-specific resolution is necessary for understanding the functional specialization of ...
Development and Application of Spectral Databases and Mathematical Models in the Study of Plant Natural Products Biosynthesis
Plant natural products are useful for many different applications, including medicines, flavors and fragrances, and industrial uses. Two important aspects of plant natural products research are the identification of compounds ...
Investigating Plant One-carbon Metabolism Through Engineering and Enzyme Characterization
One-carbon (C1) metabolism is essential to all organisms. In plants, C1 units are required for the synthesis of proteins, nucleic acids, pantothenate, and many methylated molecules. Due to the low abundance and lability ...
GENETIC AND FUNCTIONAL CHARACTERIZATION OF CALCIUM/CALMODULIN/ATSR1-MEDIATED SIGNAL PATHWAY IN PLANT DEFENSE RESPONSE
Calcium (Ca2+) is accepted as a predominant second messenger in plant cells. Cytosolic and nuclear free Ca2+ concentration in plant cells changes rapidly and dynamically in response to various endogenous or environmental ...
