- The inositol oxygenase gene family of Arabidopsis is involved in the biosynthesis of nucleotide sugar precursors for cell-wall matrix polysaccharidesUlrike Kanter
Plant Molecular Biology, University of Frankfurt, Biocenter N200, Marie Curie Strasse 9, 60439, Frankfurt, Germany
Planta 221:243-54. 2005..However, the incorporation of 3H-inositol into wall polymers of seedlings is greatly impaired in the mutant lines (Delta)MIOX1 and (Delta)MIOX2, which are the only isoforms that are expressed in seedlings...
- DCD - a novel plant specific domain in proteins involved in development and programmed cell deathRaimund Tenhaken
Plant Molecular Biology, University of Frankfurt, Marie Curie Str, 9, 60439 Frankfurt, Germany
BMC Bioinformatics 6:169. 2005..We delineate the NRP-gene in soybean, which is specifically induced during this programmed cell death and contains a novel protein domain, which is commonly found in different plant proteins...
- Genome-wide analysis of the UDP-glucose dehydrogenase gene family in Arabidopsis, a key enzyme for matrix polysaccharides in cell wallsMichaela Klinghammer
University of Frankfurt, Plant Molecular Biology, Biocenter, D 60439 Frankfurt, Germany
J Exp Bot 58:3609-21. 2007..The four Arabidopsis UDP-glucose dehydrogenase isoforms oxidize only UDP-glucose as a substrate. Nucleotide-sugars, which are converted by similar enzymes in bacteria, are not accepted as substrates for the Arabidopsis enzymes...
