    ..This also suggests that signals with a mitochondrial origin and retrograde signals may be crucial for successful germination. ..

    ..These findings indicate that PAR blocks LPS-induced osteolysis through the suppression of NF-kappaB activity and suggest that it might have therapeutic value in bacteria-induced bone destruction. ..
  5. Murcha M, Elhafez D, Millar A, Whelan J. The C-terminal region of TIM17 links the outer and inner mitochondrial membranes in Arabidopsis and is essential for protein import. J Biol Chem. 2005;280:16476-83 pubmed
    ..Together these results indicate that the C-terminal region of AtTIM17-2 is exposed on the outer surface of the outer membrane, and the C-terminal region is essential for protein import into mitochondria. ..
  6. Lister R, Carrie C, Duncan O, Ho L, Howell K, Murcha M, et al. Functional definition of outer membrane proteins involved in preprotein import into mitochondria. Plant Cell. 2007;19:3739-59 pubmed publisher
    ..Thus, it is proposed that all three components directly interact with precursor proteins to participate in early stages of mitochondrial protein import...
  7. Carrie C, Giraud E, Duncan O, Xu L, Wang Y, Huang S, et al. Conserved and novel functions for Arabidopsis thaliana MIA40 in assembly of proteins in mitochondria and peroxisomes. J Biol Chem. 2010;285:36138-48 pubmed publisher
    ..Thus, the mechanistic operation of the mitochondrial disulfide relay system is different in A. thaliana compared with other systems, and Mia40 has taken on new roles in peroxisomes and mitochondria. ..
  8. Che P, Bussell J, Zhou W, Estavillo G, Pogson B, Smith S. Signaling from the endoplasmic reticulum activates brassinosteroid signaling and promotes acclimation to stress in Arabidopsis. Sci Signal. 2010;3:ra69 pubmed publisher
    ..Thus, these bZIPs link ER stress and BR signaling, which may be a mechanism by which plant growth and stress responses can be integrated. ..

    ..Therefore antibodies to neither vimentin nor ß-F1-ATPase are useful for differential diagnosis of MM, however high antibody levels to ß-F1-ATPase may be associated with increased survival and this warrants further investigation. ..
  2. Tanz S, Kilian J, Johnsson C, Apel K, Small I, Harter K, et al. The SCO2 protein disulphide isomerase is required for thylakoid biogenesis and interacts with LHCB1 chlorophyll a/b binding proteins which affects chlorophyll biosynthesis in Arabidopsis seedlings. Plant J. 2012;69:743-54 pubmed publisher
    ..Therefore, we propose that SCO2 is involved in the integration of LHCB1 proteins into the thylakoids that feeds back on the regulation of the tetrapyrrole biosynthetic pathway and nuclear gene expression. ..

    ..By identifying an additional component of the canonical SL biosynthesis pathway in Arabidopsis, we provide a new tool to investigate the regulation of shoot branching and other SL-dependent developmental processes. ..

    ..Because of its role in leucine metabolism, we investigated the importance of the catalytic activity of AUH and found that it affects the regulation of mitochondrial translation and biogenesis in response to leucine. ..
