  1. 1. The 14-3-3 protein family - Conserved structure, diverse functions

    University dissertation from Department of Biochemistry, Lund University

    Author : Magnus Rosenquist; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; regulation; phosphorylation; plant; plasma membrane; fusicoccin; H ATPase; binding motifs; specificity; evolution; 14-3-3; isoforms; Plant biochemistry; Växtbiokemi;

    Abstract : While once abstruse, 14-3-3 proteins are now well known as players in several cellular processes. These processes range from apoptosis and mitosis in mammals and yeast, to regulation of primary metabolism in plants. To date, 104 proteins have been shown to interact with 14-3-3s of which 85 are found in mammals and yeast, and 21 are found in plants. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Arabidopsis 14-3-3 Family - Evolution, Expression, Localization, and Target Specificity

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Magnus Alsterfjord; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Växtbiokemi; Plant biochemistry; Biologi; Biology; Arabidopsis; 14-3-3; H -ATPase;

    Abstract : In plants, 14-3-3 proteins are key regulators of primary metabolism and membrane transport. It was previously thought that the 14-3-3 isoforms were not very specific with regard to target proteins, but more recent data suggest that the specificity may be high. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Arabidopsis 14-3-3 family -target protein specificity and expression of isoforms

    University dissertation from Lunds universitet

    Author : Annika Arkell; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; protein-protein interaction; GUS; Arabidopsis; 14-3-3; H -ATPase; expression;

    Abstract : 14-3-3 proteins comprise a family of highly conserved proteins. 14-3-3 proteins have been found in all organisms examined except for members of the prokaryotic kingdom. 14-3-3s are involved in numerous processes in the cell and they typically bind to phosphorylated motifs in other proteins and regulate their activities.

  4. 4. The Plant Plasma Memrbane H+-ATPase: regulation by phosphorylation and 14-3-3 proteins

    University dissertation from Maivi Åkesson, växtbiokemi, Lunds Universitet

    Author : Anne Olsson; [2000]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; phosphorylation; fusicoccin; 14-3-3; C-terminus; autoinhibitory domain; plasma membrane; plant; H -ATPase; Plant biochemistry; Växtbiokemi;

    Abstract : The plant plasma membrane H+-ATPase is a predominant membrane enzyme that provides the energy for secondary active transport across the plasma membrane. Consequently, the H+-ATPase is thought to play a major role in many cell processes, and it is implicated to be regulated by a number of factors, including hormones, blue light, and fungal toxins The plant plasma membrane H+-ATPase is regulated via an autoinhibitory domain located within the C-terminal region of the enzyme.

  5. 5. The Plasma Membrane H+-ATPase - Identification of a 14-3-3 binding motif

    University dissertation from Department of Plant Biochemistry, Lund University

    Author : Fredrik Svennelid; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; regulation; Plant biochemistry; Växtbiokemi; plasma membrane; plant; phosphorylation; isoforms; H -ATPase; fusicoccin; C terminus; binding motif; 14-3-3; autoinhibitory domain;

    Abstract : The P-type plasma membrane H+-ATPases form a group of proteins only found in plants and fungi. The pumping of protons across the plasma membrane, energized by ATP hydrolysis, creates an electrochemical gradient that is essential for solute transport and internal pH regulation. READ MORE
