Disease relevance of Genes, Plant


High impact information on Genes, Plant


Biological context of Genes, Plant


Anatomical context of Genes, Plant

  • We have shown that the individual members of the plant gene family for glutamine synthetase (GS) are differentially expressed in vivo, and each encode distinct GS polypeptides which are targeted to different subcellular compartments (chloroplast or cytosol) [14].
  • An analysis of these and other ipi leads us to suggest a separate origin for green algal and plant genes and propose that a single gene encodes plastid and cytosolic IPI in plants [15].

Associations of Genes, Plant with chemical compounds


Gene context of Genes, Plant

  • The positions of the introns support the complementary hypothesis that the DHFR domain of the bifunctional plant genes and the monofunctional DHFR gene of vertebrates derive from a common, intron-containing progenitor, although the structure (bifunctional or monofunctional) of the ancestral gene remains indeterminate [21].
  • Unlike most other plant genes encoding small HSPs, expression of the RTM2 gene was not induced by high temperature and did not contribute to thermotolerance of seedlings [22].
  • ALB3 is a novel plant gene whose product shows homology to a bacterial membrane protein previously identified in five bacterial species and to a yeast protein, OXA1, and its human homolog [23].
  • The regulation of AtNHX1 by NaCl and the ability of the plant gene to suppress the yeast nhx1 mutant suggest that the mechanism by which cations are detoxified in yeast and plants may be similar [24].
  • The plant cDNA does not rescue a yeast vps34 deletion mutant, but a chimeric gene in which the coding sequence for the C-terminal third of VPS34 is replaced by the corresponding sequence from the plant gene does rescue the yeast mutant [25].
