• Diacylglycerol transport by Arabidopsis Synaptotagmin 1 at ERplasma membrane contact sites under abiotic stress. 

      Ruiz López, Noemi; Pérez Sancho, Jessica; Esteban del Valle, Alicia; García Hernández, Selene; Huércano Rubens, Carolina; [et al.] (2019-11-13)
      Bulk lipid transport between membranes within cells involves vesicles, however membrane contact sites have recently been discovered as mediators of non-vesicular lipid transfer. ER-PM contact sites are conserved structures ...
    • 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 ...
    • Regulation of Vitamin C content in higher plants 

      Fenech-Torres, Mario; Amorim-Silva, Vitor; Smirnoff, Nicholas; Botella-Mesa, Miguel Angel (2017-06-23)
      Ascorbic Acid (AsA, vitamin C) has multiple biological roles in plants. Although several pathways for the novo synthesis of AsA have been reported, it is the L-Gal, also known as the Smirnoff-Wheeler (SW), the main pathway ...
    • 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 ...
    • Scaffold-mediated Assembly of the Brassinosteroid Signaling Components by TTL proteins 

      Amorim-Silva, Vitor; García-Moreno, Álvaro; Lakhssassi, Naoufal; Esteban, Alicia; Rosado, Abel; [et al.] (2017-06-23)
      Brassinosteroids (BRs) is a group of steroidal hormones that play critical roles in multiple aspects of plant growth and development. BR stimulation at the PM receptors initiates a series of phosphorylation events enabling ...
    • 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 ...
