Risk J, Laurie R, Macknight R, Day C. FRIGIDA and related proteins have a conserved central domain and family specific N- and C- terminal regions that are functionally important. Plant Mol Biol. 2010;73:493-505 pubmed publisher
Chapman B, Brown C. Translation termination in Arabidopsis thaliana: characterisation of three versions of release factor 1. Gene. 2004;341:219-25 pubmed
..The results highlight the diversity and duplication of genes within plant genomes, but also emphasize the conservation of the translation process across kingdoms. ..
Chung B, Simons C, Firth A, Brown C, Hellens R. Effect of 5'UTR introns on gene expression in Arabidopsis thaliana. BMC Genomics. 2006;7:120 pubmed
..In the EF1alpha-A3 gene, the presence of a long intron in the 5'UTR is sufficient to enhance gene expression in plants in a size dependent manner. ..
Day R, Herridge R, Ambrose B, Macknight R. Transcriptome analysis of proliferating Arabidopsis endosperm reveals biological implications for the control of syncytial division, cytokinin signaling, and gene expression regulation. Plant Physiol. 2008;148:1964-84 pubmed publisher
..In summary, the data generated provide a useful resource providing novel insight into early seed development and identify new target genes for further characterization...
Clarke S, Cristescu S, Miersch O, Harren F, Wasternack C, Mur L. Jasmonates act with salicylic acid to confer basal thermotolerance in Arabidopsis thaliana. New Phytol. 2009;182:175-87 pubmed publisher
..By contrast, the ethylene mutant ein2-1 conferred greater thermotolerance. * These data suggest that JA acts with SA, conferring basal thermotolerance while ET may act to promote cell death. ..
