  1. Barazani O, von Dahl C, Baldwin I. Sebacina vermifera promotes the growth and fitness of Nicotiana attenuata by inhibiting ethylene signaling. Plant Physiol. 2007;144:1223-32 pubmed publisher
    ..In contrast, neither inoculation nor KMnO(4) exposure influenced the germination of ir-aco seeds. We conclude that S. vermifera increases plant growth by impairing ethylene production independently of JA signaling and TPI production...
  2. Vadassery J, Tripathi S, Prasad R, Varma A, Oelmuller R. Monodehydroascorbate reductase 2 and dehydroascorbate reductase 5 are crucial for a mutualistic interaction between Piriformospora indica and Arabidopsis. J Plant Physiol. 2009;166:1263-74 pubmed publisher
    ..2 protein in drought-stressed insertion lines indicated that MDAR2 and DHAR5 are crucial for producing sufficient ascorbate to maintain the interaction between Piriformospora indica and Arabidopsis in a mutualistic state. ..
  3. Krüger T, Mönch B, Oppenhäuser S, Luckas B. LC-MS/MS determination of the isomeric neurotoxins BMAA (beta-N-methylamino-L-alanine) and DAB (2,4-diaminobutyric acid) in cyanobacteria and seeds of Cycas revoluta and Lathyrus latifolius. Toxicon. 2010;55:547-57 pubmed publisher
    ..06 microg g(-1) in cyanobacteria and <0.008 microg g(-1) in angiosperm seeds. The highly specific analysis method with increased detection sensitivity eliminates the disadvantages of derivatization-based methods to be discussed...
  4. Barazani O, Benderoth M, Groten K, Kuhlemeier C, Baldwin I. Piriformospora indica and Sebacina vermifera increase growth performance at the expense of herbivore resistance in Nicotiana attenuata. Oecologia. 2005;146:234-43 pubmed
    ..These results suggest that Sebacina spp. may interfere with defense signaling and allow plants to increase growth rates at the expense of herbivore resistance mediated by TPIs. ..
  5. Shahollari B, Vadassery J, Varma A, Oelmuller R. A leucine-rich repeat protein is required for growth promotion and enhanced seed production mediated by the endophytic fungus Piriformospora indica in Arabidopsis thaliana. Plant J. 2007;50:1-13 pubmed
    ..indica interaction. Thus, pii-2, and presumably also At5g16590, two proteins present in plasma membrane microdomains, appear to be involved in P. indica-induced growth promotion and enhanced seed production in Arabidopsis thaliana. ..
  6. Birringer M, Lington D, Vertuani S, Manfredini S, Scharlau D, Glei M, et al. Proapoptotic effects of long-chain vitamin E metabolites in HepG2 cells are mediated by oxidative stress. Free Radic Biol Med. 2010;49:1315-22 pubmed publisher
    ..Taken together, these results indicate that long-chain metabolites may be responsible for antiproliferative properties of vitamin E vitamers...
  7. Stitz M, Baldwin I, Gaquerel E. Diverting the flux of the JA pathway in Nicotiana attenuata compromises the plant's defense metabolism and fitness in nature and glasshouse. PLoS ONE. 2011;6:e25925 pubmed publisher

    ..K-selected already at the start of the experiment, our results still indicate that the association of these strategies with the corresponding selection regimes was maintained during the 5-year experimental period. ..
  9. Shi C, Baldwin I, Wu J. Arabidopsis plants having defects in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay factors UPF1, UPF2, and UPF3 show photoperiod-dependent phenotypes in development and stress responses. J Integr Plant Biol. 2012;54:99-114 pubmed publisher
    ..These data suggest a complex regulatory network, likely composed of light signaling and NMD factor-mediated pathways, in influencing plant development and adaption to environmental stresses. ..
