• Characterization of AtDGK2 in relation to Contact Sites 

      García-Hernández, Selene; Ruiz-López, Noemi; Botella, Miguel A. (2019-05-17)
      Contact Sites are conserved cellular regions where two membranes of different organelles are very close but not merged. Contact sites between the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and the plasma membrane (ER-PM CS) play important ...
    • Genetic determinants of Vitamin C content in higher plants 

      Fenech-Torres, Mario; Amorim-Silva, Vitor; Smirnoff, Nicholas; Valpuesta-Fernandez, Victoriano; Botella, Miguel A. (2018-07-18)
      Ascorbic acid (AsA, VitC) is the most abundant water-soluble antioxidant in plants and it plays a plethora of biological roles including resistance to abiotic stress. Hence, including VitC as a trait to improve in breeding ...
    • REGULATION OF VITAMIN C BIOSYNTHESIS IN HIGHER PLANTS 

      Fenech Torres, Mario; Amorim-Silva, Vitor; Castillo, Araceli G.; Esteban del Valle, Alicia; Valpuesta-Fernandez, Victoriano; [et al.] (2019-05-15)
      Ascorbate, also known as vitamin C, plays fundamental roles in biotic and abiotic stress resistance in plants. In green tissues, ascorbate is mainly synthesized through the Smirnoff-Wheeler pathway, whose regulation is not ...
    • Role pf TTLs proteins in cellulose biosynthesis 

      García-Moreno, Álvaro; Amorim-Silva, Vitor; Valpuesta, Victoriano; Macho, Alberto; Jaillais, Yvon; [et al.] (2018-07-18)
      Abiotic stress cause detrimental yield losses in crop species. Plants are sessile organisms, so the understanding of the plant cell wall, which is the most important component that constitute the plant biomass of crop ...
    • ttl mutants are impaired in cellulose biosynthesis under osmotic stress 

      García-Moreno, Álvaro; Amorim-Silva, Vitor; Castillo-Garriga, Araceli; Valpuesta-Fernandez, Victoriano; Macho, Alberto; [et al.] (2018-07-18)
      As sessile organisms, plants require mechanisms to sense and respond to the challenging environment, that encompass both biotic and abiotic factors that results in differential development. In these conditions is essential ...
    • Unraveling the mechanism of TTL genes in cellulose biosynthesis 

      Garcia-Moreno, Alvaro; Amorim-Silva, Vitor; Castillo, Araceli G.; Menna, Alexandra; Kesten, Christopher; [et al.] (2019-05-10)
      As sessile organisms, plants require mechanisms to sense and respond to the challenging environment, that encompass both biotic and abiotic factors that results in differential development. In these conditions is essential ...
