The Salicylic Acid Receptor NRP3 Is a Negative Regulator of the Transcriptional Defense Response during Early Flower Development in Arabidopsis

The Salicylic Acid Receptor NRP3 Is a Negative Regulator of the Transcriptional Defense Response during Early Flower Development in Arabidopsis | Articles, Reviews and Advances on Biotechnology | Scoop.it
Arabidopsis NON-EXPRESSOR OF PR1 (NPR1) is a transcription co-activator that plays a central role in regulating the transcriptional response to plant pathogens. The NPR family consists of NPR1 and five NPR1-like genes.

Stimulating talks from the International Conference on Arabidopsis Research

Stimulating talks from the International Conference on Arabidopsis Research | Articles, Reviews and Advances on Biotechnology | Scoop.it

As usual the ICAR meeting has been full of fascinating talks and new ideas. The full abstract book is available on line here http://www.icar2012.org/.

Here are links to a few topics that are particularly novel, exciting, or otherwise just interesting:

 

Proto-oncogenes and de novo gene birth (http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/nature11184.html) Not a plant talk, but a fascinating model of where new genes come, from studies in yeast. Proto-genes are genes being born; after they die they become pseudogenes.

 

The power of small molecules for genetic disection - (chemical biology) - probing the endomembrane system through chemical biology, by Natasha Raikhel. Here's their latest Annu Rev article: (http://www.annualreviews.org/doi/abs/10.1146/annurev-arplant-042811-105456).

 

Jonathan Jones and Marie-Cecile Caillaud talked about oomycete pathogens of Arabidopsis and how effectors like to move into the nucleus - here's a taste (http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/j.1365-313X.2011.04787.x/abstract)

 

Jenny Russinova and Mark Estelle both talked about using fluorescently-tagged molecules to look at hormone and hormone receptor dynamics. Here's a BR analogue: (http://www.nature.com/nchembio/journal/v8/n6/abs/nchembio.958.html). Estelle described studies using a fluorescently labeled GA.

 

 And, here's a very exciting integrative biology post-doc opportunity at VIB in Gent, Belgium http://www.vib.be/en/training/postdoc-program/Pages/default.aspx
