Post symbiotic analysis of the Bradyrhizobium japonicum-soybean symbiosis : proteomics and mutagenesis of protocatechuate 3, 4-dioxygenase paralogs
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2012)
in agricultural production. In a microaerobic environment huge amounts of energy are required to fuel this process and a steady supply of carbon substrates is needed from the symbiotic legume partner to fuel nitrogenase. The extension of the duration of nitrogen...
Dissecting water stress-induced molecular responses in the maize primary root
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2017)
is an increasingly significant challenge for global agriculture and food security. Despite that numerous studies have been conducted over several decades, a clear strategy to improve the productivity of crop plants like maize under low water availability has not been...
Regulation of ethylene biosynthesis by mitogen-activated protein kinase cascades in Arabidopsis
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
to environmental stimuli. Ethylene induces the ripening of climacteric fruits, which is characterized by a steep increase in ethylene synthesis at the mature stage. In agriculture, removal of ethylene in hypobaric storage compartments prevents fruits from spoilage...
Roles of clathrin-coated vesicle networks in plant immunity and development
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2018)
[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT AUTHOR'S REQUEST.] For a plant cell, the plasma membrane (PM) is not only the interface with its environment but also a signaling platform. Proteins localized to the PM ...
The copper ATPases : intracellular trafficking and nervous system function
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2013)
[ACCESS RESTRICTED TO THE UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI AT AUTHOR'S REQUEST.] Copper is essential for life, as it participates as a cofactor in numerous enzymatic reactions including energy generation, antioxidant defense, ...
