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 ...
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 ...
Proteomic changes during boron tolerance in barley (Hordeum vulgare) and the role of vacuolar proton-translocating ATPase subunit E
Boron is an essential micronutrient for plants and animals; however, it can be toxic when present at high concentrations. The purpose of this study was to understand the mechanisms of boron tolerance in the Turkish barley ...
