Expression, Purification and in vitro Enzyme Activity Assay of Plant Derived GTPase
Authors:  Annemarie Glöckner and Christian A. Voigt, date: 11/20/2015, view: 8178, Q&A: 0
Based on gene expression data after biotic stress, the GTPase RabA4c has been suggested to regulate pathogen-induced callose biosynthesis in the model organism Arabidopsis thaliana. We studied the function of RabA4c in its ...
