Cover for ROS signalling, and antioxidant defence network in halophytes.

Halophytes have evolved a range of adaptations to tolerate disturbances in reactive oxygen species (ROS) homeostasis caused by high salinity alone or in combination with other stresses. Singlet oxygen (1O2), superoxide anion (O2.-), hydroxyl radical (OH.) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) are the major...

Cover for Application of RNA silencing in improving plant traits for industrial use.

The discovery of RNA silencing mechanisms has transformed research into gene function and has also allowed novel traits to be developed in plants, including some for industrial applications. To silence the expression of an undesirable gene, RNA silencing may be preferable over direct gene mutation...

Cover for Structural and functional properties of glutamate dehydrogenases.

Glutamate dehydrogenases are homooligomeric enzymes that catalyse the reversible oxidative deamination of glutamate to 2-oxoglutarate, thereby linking nitrogen metabolism and the tricarboxylic acid cycle. Four different classes of the enzyme are known in microbes that differ in size and cofactor...

Cover for Arginase and microbial pathogenesis in the lungs.

Strict regulation of pulmonary capillary barrier integrity is crucial for preventing capillary leak and ensuring optimal gaseous exchange at the alveolar-capillary interface. Bacterial infection of the lungs, as can be seen during severe pneumonia, can dramatically impair lung barrier function and...

Cover for Hydroxyproline metabolism in microorganisms.

L-Hydroxyproline (L-Hyp) has been detected in certain proteins, particularly collagen, as well as in some peptide antibiotics. In mammalian systems, the L-proline residue in procollagen is post-translationally hydroxylated to trans-4-hydroxy-L-proline (T4LHyp) or trans-3-hydroxyl-proline (T3 LHyp). ...
