  1. Hamza I, Dailey H. One ring to rule them all: trafficking of heme and heme synthesis intermediates in the metazoans. Biochim Biophys Acta. 2012;1823:1617-32 pubmed publisher
    ..Additionally, older, well established data are reexamined in light of more recent studies on cellular organization and data available from newer model organisms. This article is part of a Special Issue entitled: Cell Biology of Metals. ..
  2. Culver J. Tobacco mosaic virus assembly and disassembly: determinants in pathogenicity and resistance. Annu Rev Phytopathol. 2002;40:287-308 pubmed
    ..Thus, both the structure and assembly of the TMV CP function as determinants in the induction of disease and resistance responses. ..
  3. Beckett D. Biotin sensing at the molecular level. J Nutr. 2009;139:167-70 pubmed publisher
    ..Control of human holocarboxylase synthetase function is, however, considerably more complex than the simple competitive protein protein interactions observed in bacterial systems. ..
  4. Carr E, Kelman A, Wu G, Gopaul R, Senkevitch E, Aghvanyan A, et al. Glutamine uptake and metabolism are coordinately regulated by ERK/MAPK during T lymphocyte activation. J Immunol. 2010;185:1037-44 pubmed publisher
    ..Together, these data indicate that regulation of glutamine use is an important component of T cell activation. Thus, a better understanding of glutamine sensing and use in T cells may reveal novel targets for immunomodulation. ..
  5. Li J, Attila C, Wang L, Wood T, Valdes J, Bentley W. Quorum sensing in Escherichia coli is signaled by AI-2/LsrR: effects on small RNA and biofilm architecture. J Bacteriol. 2007;189:6011-20 pubmed
    ..Our results suggest that AI-2 is indeed a QS signal in E. coli, especially when it acts through the transcriptional regulator LsrR. ..
  6. SIMONS M, Misra A, Sriram G. Genome-scale models of plant metabolism. Methods Mol Biol. 2014;1083:213-30 pubmed publisher
    ..This cycle of editing, refining, and curation has to be performed iteratively to obtain an accurate model. This chapter outlines the reconstruction and curation of GSMs with a focus on models of plant metabolism...
  7. Bretz J, Mock N, Charity J, Zeyad S, Baker C, Hutcheson S. A translocated protein tyrosine phosphatase of Pseudomonas syringae pv. tomato DC3000 modulates plant defence response to infection. Mol Microbiol. 2003;49:389-400 pubmed
    ..The results indicate that HopPtoD2 is a translocated effector with protein tyrosine phosphatase activity that modulates plant defence responses. ..
  8. Padmanaban S, Chanroj S, Kwak J, Li X, Ward J, Sze H. Participation of endomembrane cation/H+ exchanger AtCHX20 in osmoregulation of guard cells. Plant Physiol. 2007;144:82-93 pubmed
    ..Together, these results provide genetic and biochemical evidence that one CHX protein plays a critical role in osmoregulation through K+ fluxes and possibly pH modulation of an active endomembrane system in guard cells. ..
  9. Shah S, Nolan R, Davis E, Stokin G, Niesman I, Canto I, et al. Examination of potential mechanisms of amyloid-induced defects in neuronal transport. Neurobiol Dis. 2009;36:11-25 pubmed publisher
    ..ROS and membrane permeability are also unlikely to be responsible for fibril-mediated toxicity. Collectively, our results indicate that multiple initiating factors converge upon pathways of defective transport. ..
