High impact information on ADL1


Biological context of ADL1


Anatomical context of ADL1


Associations of ADL1 with chemical compounds

  • Ca2+ increases the amount of ADL1 present in the membrane fraction, whereas cyclosporin A inhibits the membrane association [5].
  • Furthermore, Ca2+ and GTP change the migration pattern of ADL1 in nondenaturing polyacrylamide gels, indicating that these chemicals influence either the complex formation and/or the conformation of the ADL1 complex [5].
  • Despite the loss of ADL1Ap, the mutants did not display any defects in cytokinesis, and growth of the mutant seedlings could be rescued in tissue culture by the addition of sucrose [8].

Other interactions of ADL1


Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of ADL1

  • Subcellular fractionation experiments, together with gel-filtration and nondenaturing-gel electrophoresis revealed that most of ADL1 is present as a high-molecular-mass complex of 400 to 600 kD in the membrane or pellet fraction, whereas ADL1 is present in the soluble fraction as a monomer [5].
  • Immunoblotting revealed that ADL1Ap expression was not detectable in the mutants [8].
