...has never before been described," says Henrik Scheller, the leader of JBEI's Feedstocks Division and a leading authority on cell wall biosynthesis. "Our method should enable rapid progress to be made in determining the functional role of nucleotide sugar transporters in plants and other organisms, which is very important for the metabolic engineering of cell walls."
...humans, and we have determined the function of two-thirds of the plant transporters as compared to one-quarter of the human ones," Scheller says. "This is a tremendous accomplishment and we are already using this information at JBEI to improve biomass sugar composition for biofuel production." Other co-authors of the PNAS paper reporting this research were Ignacio Moreno, Henry Temple, Thomas Herter, Bruce Link, Daniela Doñas-Cofré, Adrián...
...According to news originating from Rennes , France , by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "Mono- and digalactosyldiacylglycerol (MGDG and DGDG) are the most abundant lipids of photosynthetic membranes (thylakoids). In Arabidopsis green tissues, MGD1 is the main enzyme synthesizing MGDG."
...According to news reporting out of Sheffield UnitedUnited Kingdom , by NewsRx editors, research stated, "Guard cells allow land plants to survive under restricted or fluctuating water availability. They control the exchange of gases between the external environment and the interior of the plant by regulating the aperture of stomatal pores in response to environmental stimuli such as light intensity, and are important regulators of plant productivity."
