Structurally diverse dehydroshikimate dehydratase variants participate in microbial quinate catabolism

Posted by on Apr 13, 2017 in Publications | Comments Off on Structurally diverse dehydroshikimate dehydratase variants participate in microbial quinate catabolism

Peek J, Roman J, Moran GR, Christendat D Mol Microbiol. 2017 Jan;103(1):39-54. PMID: 27706847
Abstract: Quinate and shikimate can be degraded by a number of microbes. Dehydroshikimate dehydratases (DSDs) play a central role in this process, catalyzing the conversion of 3-dehydroshikimate to protocatechuate, a common intermediate of aromatic degradation pathways. DSDs have applications in metabolic engineering for the production of valuable protocatechuate-derived molecules. Although a number of Gram-negative bacteria are known to catabolize...

Nod factors potentiate auxin signaling for transcriptional regulation and lateral root formation in Medicago truncatula

Posted by on Apr 13, 2017 in Publications | Comments Off on Nod factors potentiate auxin signaling for transcriptional regulation and lateral root formation in Medicago truncatula

Herrbach V, Chirinos X, Rengel D, Agbevenou K, Vincent R, Pateyron S, Huguet S, Balzergue S, Pasha A, Provart N, Gough C, Bensmihen S. J Exp Bot. 2017 Jan 10 PMID: 28073951
Abstract: Nodulation (Nod) factors (NFs) are symbiotic molecules produced by rhizobia that are essential for establishment of the rhizobium-legume endosymbiosis. Purified NFs can stimulate lateral root formation (LRF) in Medicago truncatula, but little is known about the molecular mechanisms involved. Using a combination of reporter constructs, pharmacological and genetic...

An experimental comparison of human and bovine rhodopsin provides insight into the molecular basis of retinal disease

Posted by on Apr 13, 2017 in Publications | Comments Off on An experimental comparison of human and bovine rhodopsin provides insight into the molecular basis of retinal disease

Morrow JM, Castiglione GM, Dungan SZ, Tang PL, Bhattacharyya N, Hauser FE, Chang BS. FEBS Lett. 2017 Mar 30 PMID: 28369862
Abstract: Rhodopsin is the visual pigment that mediates dim-light vision in vertebrates and is a model system for the study of retinal disease. The majority of rhodopsin experiments are performed using bovine rhodopsin; however, recent evidence suggests that significant functional differences exist among mammalian rhodopsins. In this study, we identify differences in both thermal decay and light-activated retinal release...

ccNET: Database of co-expression networks with functional modules for diploid and polyploid Gossypium

Posted by on Apr 13, 2017 in Publications | Comments Off on ccNET: Database of co-expression networks with functional modules for diploid and polyploid Gossypium

You Q, Xu W, Zhang K, Zhang L, Yi X, Yao D, Wang C, Zhang X, Zhao X, Provart NJ, Li F, Su Z. Nucleic Acids Res. 2017 Jan 4;45(D1):D1090-D1099. PMID: 28053168
Abstract: Plant genera with both diploid and polyploid species are a common evolutionary occurrence. Polyploids, especially allopolyploids such as cotton and wheat, are a great model system for heterosis research. Here, we have integrated genome sequences and transcriptome data of Gossypium species to construct co-expression networks and identified functional modules from different cotton...

G9a and ZNF644 Physically Associate to Suppress Progenitor Gene Expression during Neurogenesis

Posted by on Apr 13, 2017 in Publications | Comments Off on G9a and ZNF644 Physically Associate to Suppress Progenitor Gene Expression during Neurogenesis

Olsen JB, Wong L, Deimling S, Miles A, Guo H, Li Y, Zhang Z, Greenblatt JF, Emili A, Tropepe V. Stem Cell Reports. 2016 Sep 13;7(3):454-70 PMID: 27546533
Abstract: Proliferating progenitor cells undergo changes in competence to give rise to post-mitotic progeny of specialized function. These cell-fate transitions typically involve dynamic regulation of gene expression by histone methyltransferase (HMT) complexes. However, the composition, roles, and regulation of these assemblies in regulating cell-fate decisions in vivo are poorly understood....

Yeast two-hybrid interactions between Arabidopsis lyrata S Receptor Kinase and the ARC1 E3 ligase

Posted by on Apr 13, 2017 in Publications | Comments Off on Yeast two-hybrid interactions between Arabidopsis lyrata S Receptor Kinase and the ARC1 E3 ligase

Indriolo E, Goring DR. Plant Signal Behav. 2016 Jun 2;11(6):e1188233 PMID: 27175603
Abstract: Here we describe protein-protein interactions between signaling components in the conserved self-incompatibility pathway from Brassica spp. and Arabidopsis lyrata. Previously, we had demonstrated that ARC1 is necessary in A. lyrata for the rejection of self-pollen by the self-incompatibility pathway. The results described here demonstrate that A. lyrata ARC1 interacts with A. lyrata S Receptor Kinase (SRK1) in the yeast 2-hybrid system. A. lyrata ARC1...

Evolution, genomics and epidemiology of Pseudomonas syringae: Challenges in Bacterial Molecular Plant Pathology.

Posted by on Apr 13, 2017 in Publications | Comments Off on Evolution, genomics and epidemiology of Pseudomonas syringae: Challenges in Bacterial Molecular Plant Pathology.

Baltrus DA, McCann HC, Guttman DS. Mol Plant Pathol. 2017 Jan;18(1):152-168. PMID: 27798954
Abstract: A remarkable shift in our understanding of plant-pathogenic bacteria is underway. Until recently, nearly all research on phytopathogenic bacteria was focused on a small number of model strains, which provided a deep, but narrow, perspective on plant-microbe interactions. Advances in genome sequencing technologies have changed this by enabling the incorporation of much greater diversity into comparative and functional research. We are now moving...

NKT Cell-Deficient Mice Harbor an Altered Microbiota That Fuels Intestinal Inflammation during Chemically Induced Colitis

Posted by on Apr 13, 2017 in Publications | Comments Off on NKT Cell-Deficient Mice Harbor an Altered Microbiota That Fuels Intestinal Inflammation during Chemically Induced Colitis

Selvanantham T, Lin Q, Guo CX, Surendra A, Fieve S, Escalante NK, Guttman DS, Streutker CJ, Robertson SJ, Philpott DJ, Mallevaey T. J Immunol. 2016 Dec 1;197(11):4464-4472. PMID: 27799307
Abstract: NKT cells are unconventional T cells that respond to self and microbe-derived lipid and glycolipid Ags presented by the CD1d molecule. Invariant NKT (iNKT) cells influence immune responses in numerous diseases. Although only a few studies have examined their role during intestinal inflammation, it appears that iNKT cells protect from Th1-mediated...

Image-Based Quantification of Plant Immunity and Disease

Posted by on Apr 13, 2017 in Publications | Comments Off on Image-Based Quantification of Plant Immunity and Disease

Laflamme B, Middleton M, Lo T, Desveaux D, Guttman DS. Mol Plant Microbe Interact. 2016 Dec;29(12):919-924. PMID: 27996374
Abstract: Measuring the extent and severity of disease is a critical component of plant pathology research and crop breeding. Unfortunately, existing visual scoring systems are qualitative, subjective, and the results are difficult to transfer between research groups, while existing quantitative methods can be quite laborious. Here, we present plant immunity and disease image-based quantification (PIDIQ), a quantitative,...

Abstract: BACKGROUND:Fecal transplantation (FT) is a promising treatment for recurrent Clostridium difficile infection (CDI), but its true effectiveness remains unknown. We compared 14 days of oral vancomycin followed by a single FT by enema with oral vancomycin taper (standard of care) in adult patients experiencing acute recurrence of CDI. METHODS:In a phase 2/3, single-center, open-label...
