Abscisic acid induced a negative geotropic response in dark-incubated Chlamydomonas reinhardtii (2019)
Journal Article
Wilson, I., Ladomery, M., Macdonald, H., Al-Hijab, L., Gregg, A., & Davies, R. (2019). Abscisic acid induced a negative geotropic response in dark-incubated Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. Scientific Reports, 9, https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-019-48632-0

The phytohormone abscisic acid (ABA) plays a role in stresses that alter plant water status and may also regulate root gravitropism and hydrotropism. ABA also exists in the aquatic algal progenitors of land plants, but other than its involvement in s...

Often thiols, cysteine residues, on proteins are attractive targets for such modification. Assuming... Read More about Investigating ROS, RNS, and H2S-sensitive signaling proteins.

Altered VEGF splicing isoform balance in tumor endothelium involves activation of splicing factors Srpk1 and Srsf1 by the Wilms’ tumor suppressor Wt1 (2019)
Journal Article

Angiogenesis is one hallmark of cancer. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is a known inducer of angiogenesis. Many patients benefit from antiangiogenic therapies, which however have limitations. Although VEGF is overexpressed in most tumors,...
