- ... The present work indicates that phosphorylation of a 50 kDa soluble protein is involved in the gravitropic response in graviresponsive pulvini of oat (Avena sativa) stems. This 50 kDa protein shows a differential pattern of phosphorylation between lower and upper halves of pulvini both in vivo and in vitro. The differential phosphorylation of this protein is detected only when stem segments are gr ...

- ... Rubber biosynthesis takes place on the surface of rubber particles. These particles are surrounded by a monolayer membrane in which the rubber transferase is anchored. In order to gain better insight into whether rubber particles from different plant species share common structural characteristics, the micromorphology of rubber particles from Ficus carica, Ficus benghalensis, and Hevea brasiliensi ...
