The role of the Arabidopsis FUSCA3 transcription factor during inhibition of seed germination at high temperature

Chiu RS, Nahal H, Provart NJ, Gazzarrini S BMC Plant Biol. 2012;12:15 PMID: 22279962 Abstract BACKGROUND: Imbibed seeds integrate environmental and endogenous signals to break dormancy and initiate growth under optimal conditions. Seed maturation plays an important role in determining the survival of germinating seeds, for example one of the roles of dormancy is to … Read More

Mutational analysis supports a core role for Drosophila α-catenin in adherens junction function

Sarpal R, Pellikka M, Patel RR, Hui FY, Godt D, Tepass U J. Cell. Sci. 2012 Jan;125(Pt 1):233-45 PMID: 22266901 Abstract α-catenin associates the cadherin-catenin complex with the actin cytoskeleton. α-catenin binds to β-catenin, which links it to the cadherin cytoplasmic tail, and F-actin, but also to a multitude of actin-associated proteins. These interactions suggest … Read More

Quantitative Interactor Screening with next-generation Sequencing (QIS-Seq) identifies Arabidopsis thaliana MLO2 as a target of the Pseudomonas syringae type III effector HopZ2

Lewis JD, Wan J, Ford R, Gong Y, Fung P, Nahal H, Wang PW, Desveaux D, Guttman DS BMC Genomics 2012;13:8 PMID: 22230763 Abstract BACKGROUND: Identification of protein-protein interactions is a fundamental aspect of understanding protein function. A commonly used method for identifying protein interactions is the yeast two-hybrid system. RESULTS: Here we describe the … Read More
