Characterization of the BETA1 gene, which might play a role in Beta vulgaris subsp. Maritima salt tolerance
Salinity stress has a negative impact on plant growth, which affects homeostasis and productivity. The uptake of nonessential salt ions changes the osmotic balance of the cell and causes dehydration. Higher plants develop ...
Characterization of two genes encoding metal tolerance proteins from Beta vulgaris subspecies maritima that confers manganese tolerance in yeast
Manganese (Mn2+) is an essential micronutrient in plants. However increased Mn2+ levels are toxic to plant cells. Metal tolerance proteins (MTPs), member of cation diffusion facilitator protein (CDF) family, have important ...
Evidence for the presence of a second electron donor for the cytoplasmic thioredoxins in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae
In yeast, the cytoplasmic thioredoxin system is composed of NADPH, thioredoxin reductase-1 (TRR1) and 2 thioredoxin genes (TRX1, TRX2). In this study, using yeast knockout mutants for TRR1, TRX1 and TRX2 genes, the role ...
Identification of a novel system for boron transport: Atr1 is a main boron exporter in yeast
(American Society for Microbiology, 2009-07)
Boron is a micronutrient in plants and animals, but its specific roles in cellular processes are not known. To understand boron transport and functions, we screened a yeast genomic DNA library for genes that confer resistance ...
Genome-wide identification of genes that play a role in boron stress response in yeast
(Elsevier BV., 2011-02)
Boron is an essential micronutrient for plants and it is either necessary or beneficial for animals. Studies identified only few genes related to boron metabolism thus far and details of how boron is imported into cells ...
Roles of ATR1 paralogs YMR279c and YOR378w in boron stress tolerance
Boron is a necessary nutrient for plants and animals, however excess of it causes toxicity. Previously, Atr1 and Arabidopsis Bor1 homolog were identified as the boron efflux pump in yeast, which lower the cytosolic boron ...
