- Localization of sesquiterpene formation and emission in maize leaves after herbivore damageTobias G Köllner
Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology, Jena, Germany
BMC Plant Biol 13:15. 2013..The volatile blend is dominated by sesquiterpenes of which the majority is produced by two herbivore-induced terpene synthases, TPS10 and TPS23. However, little is known about the pattern of volatile emission within maize leaves...

Institut fur Pharmazeutische Biologie, Martin Luther Universitat Halle Wittenberg, Hoher Weg 8, D 06120 Halle, Germany
Plant Cell Physiol 45:723-33. 2004..These results suggest that the PBR like protein is involved in steroid import and is directing protoporphyrinogen IX to the mitochondrial site of protoheme formation...
- Protoporphyrin IX binding and transport by recombinant mouse PBRGregor Wendler
Division of Hormone Research, Departments of Cell Biology, Pharmacology and Neurosciences, Georgetown University School of Medicine, 3900 Reservoir Road, NW, Washington, DC, USA
Biochem Biophys Res Commun 311:847-52. 2003..These results suggest that PBR, in addition to its role in cholesterol and coproporphyrinogen III transport, is also directing the mitochondrial PPIX import, a function that can be ascribed to the 18kDa PBR protein alone...
