- Characterization and functional analysis of a pollen-specific gene st901 in Solanum tuberosum. Yan Zhao; Qian Zhao; Guangming Ao; Jingjuan Yu // Planta;Aug2006, Vol. 224 Issue 2, p405
A pollen-specific gene, sb401, which was isolated from a cDNA library of in vitro geminated pollen of the diploid potato species Solanum berthaultii, belongs to the class of genes expressed late during pollen development. Using sb401 as a probe, a pollen-specific gene st901 was isolated from the...
- Cytotoxic thio-malate is transported by both an aluminum-responsive malate efflux pathway in wheat and the MAE1 malate permease in Schizosaccharomyces pombe. Osawa, Hiroki; Matsumoto, Hideaki // Planta;Aug2006, Vol. 224 Issue 2, p462
Aluminum (Al) tolerance in wheat ( Triticum aestivum L.) is mainly achieved by malate efflux, which is regulated by the expression of the recently identified gene, presumably encoding an Al-activated malate efflux transporter (ALMT1). However, the transport mechanism is not fully understood,...
