The transcriptional response to metabolites is an important mechanism by which plants integrate information about cellular energy and nutrient status. Although some carboxylic acids have been implicated in the regulation of gene expression for select transcripts, it is unclear whether all carboxylic acids have the same effect, how many transcripts are affected, and how carboxylic acid signaling is integrated with other metabolite signals. In this study, we demonstrate that perturbations in cellu ...[more]
Project description:Mitochondrial antioxidant defence was manipulated by dexamthasone inducible RNAi knockdown of the mitochondrial superoxide dismutase (MSD1) to study transcriptional changes in response.
Project description:Mitochondrial electron transport in Arabidopsis leaves was blocked by antimycin A treatment to trigger mitochondrial production of reactive oxygen species in a knockout line for a mitochondrial peroxidase (PrxII F) and to study transcriptional changes in response

Project description:Wild-type (Col-0) and mutant plants (adg1-1, tpt-2, adg1-1/tpt-2) were grown for 28 days under low light conditions and were then transferred to HL. Leaf samples for transcriptional profiling were taken at time 0 (before transfer to high light) and 4 hours and 48 hours (2 days) after transfer to high light.
Project description:Col-0 and WEE1KO (wee1-1 and wee1-2) were germinated on control medium on a nylon mesh and transferred 5 days after germination to medium supplemented with 2 mM HU. Samples were harvested at three different time points after transfer: 0 h, 5 h, and 24 h. All sampling points were performed in four independent experiments for Col-0, two independent experiments for wee1-1 and 2 independent experiments for wee1-2. For each time point in each experiment ﾱ50 root tips were collected and frozen in liquid nitrogen. RNA was extracted from root tissue with TriZol reagent (Invitrogen) and purified with RNneasy kit (Qiagen). The RNA of two independent experiments for Col-0 and WEE1KO were subsequently pooled and used for<br>microarray analysis.
Project description:We have used a microarray approach to study the effects of the Potato Virus X Potexvirus (PVX)-specific P25 VRS protein on the transcript profile of tobacco plants, when expressed as a transgene in these plants.
Project description:Agilent 4x44k tobacco micro array of wild type tobacco, empty vector control, and HC-Pro transgenic tobacco plants. Both 1-month old leaves and flowers were analyzed. Three biological replicates were performed of each sample.
Project description:Agilent 4x44k tobacco micro array of wild type tobacco (WT) and whole tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) containing transgenic tobacco plants. The transgenic plants before resistance break (BRB-6 weeks), after resistance break (ARB-8 weeks) and wild type tobacco plants infected with TMV (TMVi-9weeks) leaves were analyzed. Three biological replicates were performed for each sample.
