1. A possible involvement of autophagy in amyloplast degradation in columella cells during hydrotropic response of Arabidopsis roots.

    Planta 236(4):999 (2012) PMID 22532286

    Seedling roots display not only gravitropism but also hydrotropism, and the two tropisms interfere with one another. In Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) roots, amyloplasts in columella cells are rapidly degraded during the hydrotropic response. Degradation of amyloplasts involved in gravisensi...
  2. Caenorhabditis elegans p97 controls germline-specific sex determination by controlling the TRA-1 level in a CUL-2-dependent manner.

    Journal of Cell Science 122(Pt 20):3663 (2009) PMID 19773360

    p97 (CDC-48 in Caenorhabditis elegans) is a ubiquitin-selective AAA (ATPases associated with diverse cellular activities) chaperone and its key function is to disassemble protein complexes. p97 functions in diverse cellular processes including endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-associated degradation, m...
  3. Involvement of HMG-12 and CAR-1 in the cdc-48.1 expression of Caenorhabditis elegans.

    Developmental Biology 318(2):348 (2008) PMID 18430416

    Caenorhabditis elegans possesses two p97/VCP/Cdc48p homologues, named CDC-48.1 (C06A1.1) and CDC-48.2 (C41C4.8), and their expression patterns and levels are differently regulated. To clarify the regulatory mechanisms of differential expression of two p97 proteins of C. elegans, we performed det...
