Favaro R, Pinyopich A, Battaglia R, Kooiker M, Borghi L, Ditta G, et al
. MADS-box protein complexes control carpel and ovule development in Arabidopsis. Plant Cell. 2003;15:2603-11 pubmed
..Together, these results indicate that the SEP proteins, which are known to form multimeric complexes in the control of flower organ identity, also form complexes to control normal ovule development. ..
Cominelli E, Galbiati M, Vavasseur A, Conti L, Sala T, Vuylsteke M, et al
. A guard-cell-specific MYB transcription factor regulates stomatal movements and plant drought tolerance. Curr Biol. 2005;15:1196-200 pubmed
..Our data indicate that AtMYB60 is a transcriptional modulator of physiological responses in guard cells and open new possibilities to engineering stomatal activity to help plants survive desiccation. ..
Battaglia R, Brambilla V, Colombo L, Stuitje A, Kater M. Functional analysis of MADS-box genes controlling ovule development in Arabidopsis using the ethanol-inducible alc gene-expression system. Mech Dev. 2006;123:267-76 pubmed
Vazzola V, Losa A, Soave C, Murgia I. Knockout of frataxin gene causes embryo lethality in Arabidopsis. FEBS Lett. 2007;581:667-72 pubmed
Colombo M, Masiero S, Vanzulli S, Lardelli P, Kater M, Colombo L. AGL23, a type I MADS-box gene that controls female gametophyte and embryo development in Arabidopsis. Plant J. 2008;54:1037-48 pubmed publisher
..Electron microscopy analysis revealed that this phenotype is due to the absence of chloroplasts, strongly suggesting that AGL23 is involved in controlling the biogenesis of organelles during embryo development. ..
Gregis V, Sessa A, Colombo L, Kater M. AGAMOUS-LIKE24 and SHORT VEGETATIVE PHASE determine floral meristem identity in Arabidopsis. Plant J. 2008;56:891-902 pubmed publisher
..Furthermore, our results explain how AP1 switches from a floral meristem identity factor to a component that controls floral organ identity. ..
Pilu R, Piazza P, Petroni K, Ronchi A, Martin C, Tonelli C. pl-bol3, a complex allele of the anthocyanin regulatory pl1 locus that arose in a naturally occurring maize population. Plant J. 2003;36:510-21 pubmed
..Analysis of the pl-bol3 allele contributes to understanding the generation of diversity associated with multiple-copy genes and the molecular basis of allele-specific gene expression. ..
Cerana M, Bonza M, Harris R, Sanders D, De Michelis M. Abscisic acid stimulates the expression of two isoforms of plasma membrane Ca2+-ATPase in Arabidopsis thaliana seedlings. Plant Biol (Stuttg). 2006;8:572-8 pubmed
..ABA also increases the level of AT-ACA8 protein at the PM, suggesting a role for PM Ca (2+)-ATPases in ABA signalling. ..
Tarantino D, Casagrande F, Soave C, Murgia I. Knocking out of the mitochondrial AtFer4 ferritin does not alter response of Arabidopsis plants to abiotic stresses. J Plant Physiol. 2010;167:453-60 pubmed publisher
..We conclude that the ATFER4 ferritin role in counteracting the environmental or developmental oxidative conditions in Arabidopsis plants is ancillary to that of the other isoforms, regardless of its mitochondrial localization. ..
