High impact information on PIP1B


Biological context of PIP1B


Anatomical context of PIP1B

  • Studies with protoplasts from plants transformed with an antisense construct revealed a water transport capacity of the AthH2 protein [3].

Associations of PIP1B with chemical compounds

  • The latter could account for the observed induction of the AthH2 gene by ABA [5].
  • The significance of sequence elements with relation to GA or ABA was confirmed by deletion analyses of the AthH2 promoter [6].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of PIP1B

  • Southern blot analysis of Arabidopsis genomic DNA suggests that the AthH2 gene is encoded by a single-copy gene [5].
  • Several sites of gus expression coincide spatially with those of in situ hybridization and the immunocytochemical reaction, respectively, suggesting that the AthH2 promoter had correctly responded to light as an important exogenous factor with relevance to the complex pattern of differentiation [3].
