High impact information on ATGPX6


Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of ATGPX6

  • Southern blot analysis suggested that putative PHGPX gene was a single-copy gene [2].
  • Northern blot analysis revealed that the Arabidopsis putative PHGPX mRNA levels were increased about 3 and 4.5 times after exposure to NaCl and Al/Fe, respectively [2].
  • PCR product with the same size as that of the spinach putative PHGPX were obtained from maize, soybeans, and Arabidopsis, suggesting the expression of putative PHGPX genes in other plants [3].
