Plastidic Phosphoglucose Isomerase Is an Important Determinant of Starch Accumulation in Mesophyll Cells, Growth, Photosynthetic Capacity, and Biosynthesis of Plastidic Cytokinins in Arabidopsis
(Public Library of Science, 2015-03-26)
Phosphoglucose isomerase (PGI) catalyzes the reversible isomerization of glucose-6-phosphate and fructose-6-phosphate. It is involved in glycolysis and in the regeneration of glucose-6-P molecules in the oxidative pentose ...
Opening Pandora's box: cause and impact of errors on plant pigment studies
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2015-03-12)
Photosynthetic responses of trees in high-elevation forests: comparing evergreen species along an elevation gradient in the Central Andes
(Oxford University Press, 2015)
Plant growth at extremely high elevations is constrained by high daily thermal amplitude, strong solar radiation and water scarcity. These conditions are particularly harsh in the tropics, where the highest elevation ...
PGPRs and nitrogen-fixing legumes: a perfect team for efficient Cd phytoremediation?
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2015-02-25)
Cadmium (Cd) is a toxic, biologically non-essential and highly mobile metal that has become an increasingly important environmental hazard to both wildlife and humans. In contrast to conventional remediation technologies, ...
Can environmental constraints determine random patterns of plant species co-occurrence?
(Wiley Blackwell, 2015-03)
Plant community ecologists use the null model approach to infer assembly processes from observed patterns of species co-occurrence. In about a third of published studies, the null hypothesis of random assembly cannot be ...
