- Lapik Y, Kaufman L. The Arabidopsis cupin domain protein AtPirin1 interacts with the G protein alpha-subunit GPA1 and regulates seed germination and early seedling development. Plant Cell. 2003;15:1578-90 pubmed..These data indicate that AtPirin1 likely functions immediately downstream of GPA1 in regulating seed germination and early seedling development. ..
- Cordeiro N, Howe H. Forest fragmentation severs mutualism between seed dispersers and an endemic African tree. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2003;100:14052-6 pubmed..We provide solid evidence that deficient dispersal due to habitat fragmentation seriously impacts the reproductive cycle of a tropical bird-dispersed tree...
- Song J, Lu H, Greenberg J. Divergent roles in Arabidopsis thaliana development and defense of two homologous genes, aberrant growth and death2 and AGD2-LIKE DEFENSE RESPONSE PROTEIN1, encoding novel aminotransferases. Plant Cell. 2004;16:353-66 pubmed publisher..We suggest that AGD2 synthesizes an important amino acid-derived molecule that promotes development and suppresses defenses, whereas ALD1 generates a related amino acid-derived molecule important for activating defense signaling...
- Warpeha K, Upadhyay S, Yeh J, Adamiak J, Hawkins S, Lapik Y, et al. The GCR1, GPA1, PRN1, NF-Y signal chain mediates both blue light and abscisic acid responses in Arabidopsis. Plant Physiol. 2007;143:1590-600 pubmed..We also demonstrate that this mechanism is present in imbibed seeds wherein it affects germination rate. ..
