INVESTIGATION INTO PROPERTIES OF C4 PHOTOSYNTHESIS FROM SINGLE-CELL AND KRANZ TYPE SPECIES IN SUAEDOIDEAE (CHENOPODIACEAE)
Although the majority of C4 plants have an anatomy that separates carboxylation and decarboxylation activities between two cell types (Kranz anatomy), some terrestrial plants Bienertia cycloptera, B. sinuspersici and Suaeda ...
FUNCTIONAL CHARACTERIZATION OF POLYKETIDE-DERIVED SECONDARY METABOLITES SOLANAPYRONES PRODUCED BY THE CHICKPEA BLIGHT PATHOGEN, ASCOCHYTA RABIEI: GENETICS AND CHEMICAL ECOLOGY
Ascochyta rabiei causes Ascochyta blight of chickpea. The pathogen is known to produce polyketide-derived secondary metabolites, solanapyrones A, B and C, of which solanapyrone A has long been considered a key virulence ...
Optimizing the Enzyme/Prodrug Axis of Suicide Gene Therapy Using Protein Engineering Strategies
The unifying goal of cancer therapy is to selectively eradicate cancer cells while sparing normal tissue from damage. As many current anticancer therapies lack specificity and cause unwanted side effects there is an unmet ...
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 ...
CHARACTERIZATION OF A GREEN FLUORESCENT PROTEIN EXPRESSING
Anaplasma marginale is a tick-transmitted, obligate intraerythrocytic pathogen of cattle, causing anaplasmosis characterized by anemia, decreased milk and meat production, and occasionally death. Animals that survive are ...
Fatty acid epoxides produced by cytochrome P450s mediate the deleterious effects of dietary DGLA in the C. elegans germ line
Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) are precursors to bioactive molecules which play essential roles in development, immune response, and reproduction. This process is moderated by three pathways which act on PUFAs to form ...
Gene Expression Profiling in Single Cell C4 and Related Photosynthetic Species in Suaedoideae

HUMAN MUTS HOMOLOGUES hMSH4 AND hMSH5: FROM PROTEIN DEGRADATION TO DNA DAMAGE RESPONSE AND REPAIR
DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) are among the most deleterious forms of DNA damage and the leading causes of genomic instability, cell death and cancer. Cells have evolved a complicated network of DNA damage response (DDR) ...
