A pex1 missense mutation improves peroxisome function in a subset of Arabidopsis pex6 mutants without restoring PEX5 recycling
(National Academy of Sciences, 2018)
Peroxisomes are eukaryotic organelles critical for plant and human development because they house essential metabolic functions, such as fatty acid β-oxidation. The interacting ATPases PEX1 and PEX6 contribute to peroxisome ...
Peroxisome Function, Biogenesis, and Dynamics in Plants
(American Society of Plant Biologists, 2018)
Eukaryotic cells employ organellar compartmentalization to increase efficiency of cellular processes and protect cellular components from harmful products, such as reactive oxygen species. Peroxisomes are organelles that ...
Biology in Bloom: A Primer on the Arabidopsis thaliana Model System
(The Genetics Society of America, 2018-04-01)
Arabidopsis thaliana could have easily escaped human scrutiny. Instead, Arabidopsis has become the most widely studied plant in modern biology despite its absence from the dinner table. Pairing diminutive stature and genome ...
