Disease relevance of Avena sativa


High impact information on Avena sativa

  • The subunit organization of the tonoplast H+-pumping ATPase from oat roots (Avena sativa L. var. Lang) was investigated [2].
  • We have investigated the role of inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (InsP(3)) in the gravitropic response of oat (Avena sativa) shoot pulvini [3].
  • We investigated the effects of light-dependent growth on the relative steady-state levels of the mRNAs and protein levels of alpha-tubulin and the epsilon-subunit of the chaperonin containing tailless complex protein-1 in oat (Avena sativa) coleoptiles, which were grown in different light conditions to establish different growth responses [4].
  • We have further resolved these functional regions by analysis of N-terminal deletion and alanine-scanning mutants of oat (Avena sativa) phyA in transgenic tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) [5].
  • Four cereals, Hordeum vulgare (barley), Triticum aestivum (wheat), Secale cereal (rye), and Avena sativa (oat), were grown in a defined nutritional medium with and without the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus Glomus intraradices [6].

Biological context of Avena sativa


Anatomical context of Avena sativa


Associations of Avena sativa with chemical compounds

  • The inhibitor N,N'-dicyclohexylcarbodiimide (DCCD) was used to probe the structure and function of the vacuolar H+-translocating ATPase from oat roots (Avena sativa var. Lang) [13].
  • To distinguish between these theories, the pH dependence for auxin-induced growth of oat (Avena sativa L.) coleoptiles has been determined early and late in the elongation process [14].
  • We solubilized 90% of the FCBP from oat (Avena sativa L. cv Victory) root PM in an active form with 1% octyl-glucoside [15].
  • I examined the ability of frozen-thawed Avena sativa L. coleoptile sections under applied load to extend in response to the calcium chelators ethyleneglycol-bis-(beta-aminoethylether)-N,N,N',N'-tetraacetic acid (EGTA) and 2-[(2-bis-[carboxymethyl]amino-5-methylphenoxy)methyl]-6-methoxy-8-bis[carboxymethyl]aminoquinoline (Quin II) [16].
  • Six chloroform/methanol-soluble proteins from oat endosperm (Avena sativa) have been isolated and characterized by a purification procedure based on extraction with volatile solvents, followed by reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatography [17].

Gene context of Avena sativa

  • Here we describe removal of FMN from the LOV2 domain of Avena sativa using a hydrophobic matrix and successful incorporation of flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD), riboflavin, and 5'-malonyl-riboflavin into the resulting apoprotein; 5-deaza-FMN was not incorporated under the applied conditions [18].
  • In the C-terminal LOV2 domain of Avena sativa phototropin 1, formation of this bond triggers a conformational change that results in unfolding of a helix external to this domain called Jalpha [Harper, S. M., et al. (2003) Science 301, 1541-1545] [19].
  • The influence of glycerol and chloroplast lipids on the spectral shifts of pigments associated with NADPH: protochlorophyllide oxidoreductase from Avena sativa L [20].
  • A 60 kDa protein (P60) co-purified with phytochrome was identified as avenacosidase, a beta-glucosidase which is part of the defense system of Avena sativa [21].
  • Here, we describe a simple procedure for purification of pigment-free POR from etioplasts of Avena sativa seedlings [22].
