High concentration of ammonium (NH4+) as sole source of nitrogen in growth media is often toxic to plants. The nitrate transporter NRT1.1 is involved in mediating plant NH4+ toxicity; however, this mechanism remains undefined. In this study, the wild-type Arabidopsis (Col-0) and NRT1.1 mutants (chl1-1 and chl1-5) were grown hydroponically in NH4NO3 and (NH4)2SO4 media to assess the function of NRT1.1 in NH4+ stress responses. All the plants grew normally in mixed N sources, but Col-0 displayed more chlorosis, and lower biomass and photosynthesis than the NRT1...

The rare branched-chain sugar apiose, once thought to only be present in the plant kingdom, was found in two bacterial species: Geminicoccus roseus and Xanthomonas pisi. Glycans with apiose residues were detected in aqueous methanol-soluble fractions as well as in the insoluble pellet fraction of X. pisi. Genes encoding bacterial uridine diphosphate apiose (UDP-apiose) synthases (bUASs) were characterized in these bacterial species, but the enzyme(s) involved in the incorporation of the apiose into glycans remained unknown...

BACKGROUND: Forest species ranges are confined by environmental limitations such as cold stress. The natural range shifts of pine forests due to climate change and proactive-assisted population migration may each be constrained by the ability of pine species to tolerate low temperatures, especially in northern latitudes or in high altitudes. The aim of this study is to characterize the response of cold-tolerant versus cold-sensitive Pinus halepensis (P. halepensis) seedlings at the physiological and the molecular level under controlled cold conditions to identify distinctive features which allow us to explain the phenotypic difference...

This research focuses on the preparation of biobased copolyamides containing biacetalized galactaric acid (GalX), namely, 2,3:4,5-di- O -isopropylidene-galactaric acid (GalXMe) and 2,3:4,5-di- O -methylene-galactaric acid (GalXH), in bulk by melt polycondensation of salt monomers. In order to allow the incorporation of temperature-sensitive sugar-derived building blocks into copolyamides at temperatures below the degradation temperature of the monomers and below their melting temperatures, a clever selection of salt monomers is required, such that the sugar-derived salt monomer dissolves in the other salt monomers...

Paeonia suffruticosa 'Shima Nishiki' is a very precious double-color cultivar because of its distinctive and colorful flowers. However, our understanding of the underlying mechanisms of its double-color formation is limited. The present study investigated the soluble sugar content, cell sap pH value and anatomical structure, anthocyanin composition and content and expression patterns of genes related to anthocyanin biosynthesis in the red and pink petals of the 'Shima Nishiki' cultivar. Here, we found that soluble sugar content, cell sap pH and the shape of outer epidermal cells were not the key factors that determine double-color formation...
