J Biol Chem. 2005;280:25277-83 pubmed..coli MutT in A. thaliana and is involved in the prevention of spontaneous mutation. The results obtained here suggest that the plant Nudix family has evolved in a specific manner that differs from that of yeast and humans. ..

PLoS ONE. 2014;9:e114119 pubmed publisher..Similarly, NPR1 and PR1 transcript levels were also downregulated at specific time points in the KO-nudx8 mutant. This study shows that AtNUDX8 is involved in plant immunity as a positive regulator of defense in Arabidopsis. ..

Plant Cell. 2007;19:2470-83 pubmed..Both forms of JAS1 were found to localize to the nucleus in transient expression assays. Physiological tests of growth responses after wounding were consistent with the fact that JAS1 is a repressor of JA-regulated growth retardation. ..
