Isolation and Detection of the Chlorophyll Catabolite Hydroxylating Activity from Capsicum annuum Chromoplasts
Authors:  Mareike Hauenstein and Stefan Hörtensteiner, date: 09/20/2017, view: 2066, Q&A: 0
Hydroxylation of chlorophyll catabolites at the so-called C32 position (Hauenstein et al., 2016) is commonly found in all plant species analyzed to date. Here we describe an in vitro hydroxylation assay using Capsicum ...

Detection of Protein S-nitrosothiols (SNOs) in Plant Samples on Diaminofluorescein (DAF) Gels
Authors:  Marta Rodríguez-Ruiz, Paulo T. Mioto, José M. Palma and Francisco J. Corpas , date: 09/20/2017, view: 1693, Q&A: 0
In plant cells, the analysis of protein S-nitrosothiols (SNOs) under physiological and adverse stress conditions is essential to understand the mechanisms of Nitric oxide (NO)-based signaling. We adapted a previously reported protocol for ...
