• 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • SYT mutations membrane fusions with whole plant hypersensitivity to abiotic stresses 

      Perez Sancho, Jessica; Rosado, Abel; Botella-Mesa, Miguel Angel (2013-11-21)
      Plants undergo continuous exposure to various abiotic stresses in their natural environment. For this reason they have evolved intricate mechanisms to perceive external signals and trigger the physiological changes necessary ...
    • 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 ...
