RWTH Aachen University, Department of Plant Physiology BioIII and Institut BioI Botany, D 52056 Aachen, Germany
Curr Drug Targets 12:955-66. 2011..Moreover, since some pathogenic strategies are conserved between animal and plant pathogens, results obtained with one system might be applicable to the other...

- Imbalanced lignin biosynthesis promotes the sexual reproduction of homothallic oomycete pathogensMichael Quentin
Unité Mixte de Recherches Interactions Biotiques et Santé Végétale, INRA CNRS UNS, Sophia Antipolis, France
PLoS Pathog 5:e1000264. 2009..arabidopsidis. Taken together, our study shows that an artificial downregulation of COMT can drastically alter the interaction of a plant with the biotic environment...
- Flavin-containing monooxygenases in plants: looking beyond detoxNikolaus L Schlaich
RWTH Aachen University, Institut BioIII Pflanzenphysiologie, Worringerweg 1, D 52056 Aachen, Germany
Trends Plant Sci 12:412-8. 2007..Thus, plant FMOs hint that further FMO functions might be identified also in non-plant organisms and could stimulate novel research in this area...
- Degradation pathway of bisphenol A: does ipso substitution apply to phenols containing a quaternary alpha-carbon structure in the para position?B Kolvenbach
Department of Environmental Research, Rheinisch Westfalische Technische Hochschule, Aachen University, Aachen, Germany
Appl Environ Microbiol 73:4776-84. 2007..In conclusion, the degradation of bisphenol A and nonylphenol is initiated by the same monooxygenase, which may also lead to ipso substitution in other xenobiotics containing phenol with a quaternary alpha-carbon...
- A role for a flavin-containing mono-oxygenase in resistance against microbial pathogens in ArabidopsisMartina Koch
RWTH Aachen University, Institut Bio III Pflanzenphysiologie, 52056 Aachen, Germany
Plant J 47:629-39. 2006..We discuss the possibility that the FMO may participate in the detoxification of virulence factors produced by pathogens...
- PCC1: a merging point for pathogen defence and circadian signalling in ArabidopsisNicolas Sauerbrunn
Institut Bio III (Pflanzenphysiologie, RWTH Aachen, 52056 Aachen, Germany
Planta 218:552-61. 2004..Thus, PCC1 demonstrates a potential interrelationship between pathogen and circadian signalling pathways...
- Organ-specificity in a plant disease is determined independently of R gene signalingMonika Hermanns
Institut Bio III (Pflanzenphysiologie, RWTH Aachen, D-52056 Aachen, Germany
Mol Plant Microbe Interact 16:752-9. 2003..To our knowledge, it has not been previously demonstrated that expression of R genes and downstream components of the signaling cascade are not sufficient for the induction of avirulence gene-mediated defense mechanisms in roots...
- Monitoring the switch from housekeeping to pathogen defense metabolism in Arabidopsis thaliana using cDNA arraysMarcel Scheideler
Functional Genome Analysis and Theoretical Bioinformatics, Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum, Im Neuenheimer Feld 280, D-69120 Heidelberg, Germany
J Biol Chem 277:10555-61. 2002..Furthermore, our data showed potentially important changes in areas of metabolism, such as the glyoxylate metabolism, hitherto not suspected to be components of plant defense...
- Mex67p mediates nuclear export of a variety of RNA polymerase II transcriptsE Hurt
University of Heidelberg, BZH, Im Neuenheimer Feld 328, D 69120 Heidelberg, Germany
J Biol Chem 275:8361-8. 2000..Thus, Mex67p is an mRNA export factor for a broad range of polymerase II transcripts...
- In vitro reconstitution of a heterotrimeric nucleoporin complex consisting of recombinant Nsp1p, Nup49p, and Nup57pN L Schlaich
Institut fur Biochemie I, University of Heidelberg, Germany
Mol Biol Cell 8:33-46. 1997..We conclude that Nsp1p, Nup49p, and Nup57p can reconstitute a complex in vitro which is competent for further assembly with other components of nuclear pores...
