Cellulose biosynthesis inhibitors modulate defense transcripts and regulate genes that are implicated in cell wall re-structuring in arabidopsis
The cell wall is a multifunctional structure which is implicated in plant growth and development as well as responding to any environmental changes including biotic and abiotic stresses. One of the practical approaches in ...
Characterization of novel genetic alleles of cellulose synthase
Cellulose is the most abundant polymer on earth. Despite this, relatively little is known about the proteins and biochemical mechanisms governing cellulose biosynthesis. Only in the past 10 years since the sequencing of ...
Characterization of a carbon source-dependent, phytohormone-responsive, free methionine-(R)-sulfoxide reductase from Komagataeibacter hansenii
Komagataeibacter hansenii ATCC 23769 is a gram negative, non-pathogenic, acetic acid bacterium, best known for its ability to produce bacterial cellulose (BC). BC, an extracellular polysaccharide, is an important component ...
Characterization of a novel cellulose biosynthesis inhibitor, CBI28, in Gluconacetobacter xylinus
To study the underlying mechanisms for microbial cellulose biosythesis, a novel compound, CBI28, was used as an inhibitor along with classical genetics and EMS mutagenesis. An EZ-Link Biotin Hydrazide Kit was used to create ...
Forward screening for herbicide resistance in Arabidopsis thaliana and the monocot species Triticum aestivum
Cellulose is the primary structural component of plant cell walls and is composed of β-1,4-glucan chains. The cellulose synthesis complex is composed of multiple cellulose synthases (CESAs), which work together to extend ...
Forward genetic analysis of cellulose biosynthesis inhibitor resistance and wall hydrolysis sensitivity.
The functional analysis of components involved in cellulose biosynthesis is central in understanding cell wall assembly and structure in plants. We conducted screens using the herbicides, isoxaben and flupoxam which inhibit ...
