Disease relevance of AT1G72990


High impact information on AT1G72990

  • Nitrogen starvation was able to enhance the synthesis of beta-galactosidase from the PDI-lacZ fusion gene [2].
  • The 460 bp upstream region of the PDI gene was fused into promoterless beta-galactosidase gene of the shuttle vector YEp367R to generate pYUPDI10 [2].
  • The synthesis of beta-galactosidase from the PDI-lacZ fusion gene was enhanced by oxidative stress, such as superoxide anion and hydrogen peroxide [2].
