    X-ray Crystallography: Seeding Technique with Cytochrome P450 Reductase
    Authors:  Bixia Zhang, Jacob A. Lewis, Rishi Hazra and ChulHee Kang, date: 11/05/2022, view: 497, Q&A: 0

    Cytochrome P450 reductase (CPR) is a multi-domain protein that acts as a redox partner of cytochrome P450s. The CPR contains a flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD)–binding domain, a flavin mononucleotide (FMN)-binding domain, and a connecting

    Measurement of Ascorbate Peroxidase Activity in Sorghum
    Author:  Praveen Kumar, date: 10/20/2022, view: 774, Q&A: 0

    The ascorbate peroxidase (APX) is a widely distributed antioxidant enzyme. It differs from catalase and other peroxidases in that it scavenges/reduces reactive oxygen species (ROS) such as hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) to water using reduced ascorbate as

    Collection of Xylem Exudates from the Model Plant Arabidopsis and the Crop Plant Soybean
    Authors:  Satoru Okamoto and Azusa Kawasaki, date: 10/05/2022, view: 1047, Q&A: 0

    A number of molecules, such as secreted peptides, have been shown to mediate root-to-shoot signaling in response to various conditions. The xylem is a pathway for water and molecules that are translocated from roots to shoots. Therefore, collecting

    Extraction and Quantification of Plant Hormones and RNA from Pea Axillary Buds
    Authors:  Da Cao, Francois Barbier, Kaori Yoneyama and Christine A. Beveridge, date: 10/05/2022, view: 769, Q&A: 0
    The quantification of plant hormones and related gene expression is essential to improve the understanding of the molecular regulation of plant growth and development. However, plant hormone quantification is still challenging due to extremely low ...
    Quantitative Analysis of Redox Pool (NAD+, NADH Content) in Plant Samples Under Aluminum Stress
    Authors:  Jay Prakash Awasthi, Bedabrata Saha, Hiroyuki Koyama and Sanjib Kumar Panda, date: 06/20/2022, view: 1639, Q&A: 0

    Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is an essential cofactor of numerous enzymatic reactions found in all living cells. Pyridine nucleotides (NAD+ and NADH) are also key players in signaling through reactive oxygen species (ROS), being crucial

    Investigation of Transposon DNA Methylation and Copy Number Variation in Plants Using Southern Hybridisation
    Authors:  Vivek Hari Sundar G. and P. V. Shivaprasad, date: 06/05/2022, view: 1104, Q&A: 0

    Plant genomes are pronouncedly enriched in repeat elements such as transposons. These repeats are epigenetically regulated by DNA methylation. Whole genome high-depth sequencing after bisulfite treatment remains an expensive and laborious method to

    In vitro Assays to Evaluate Specificity and Affinity in Protein-phospholipid Interactions

    Protein–lipid interactions play important roles in many biological processes, including metabolism, signaling, and transport; however, computational and structural analyses often fail to predict such interactions, and determining which lipids

    Apoplastic Expression of CARD1-ecto Domain in Nicotiana benthamiana and Purification from the Apoplastic Fluids
    Authors:  Nobuaki Ishihama, Anuphon Laohavisit, Kaori Takizawa and Ken Shirasu, date: 04/20/2022, view: 1602, Q&A: 0

    The protein expression and purification process is an essential initial step for biochemical analysis of a protein of interest. Traditionally, heterologous protein expression systems (such as E. coli, yeast, insect cells, and cell-free) are employed

    In vitro Auto- and Substrate-Ubiquitination Assays
    Authors:  Hye Lin Park, Han Yong Lee and Gyeong Mee Yoon, date: 04/05/2022, view: 1248, Q&A: 1

    The precise regulation of the homeostasis of the cellular proteome is critical for the appropriate growth and development of plants. It also allows the plants to respond to various environmental stresses, by modulating their biochemical and

    Activity-based Protein Profiling of Serine Hydrolase Superfamily Enzymes
    Authors:  Achintya Kumar Dolui, Mahadev Latha and Panneerselvam Vijayaraj, date: 03/20/2022, view: 1111, Q&A: 0

    Activity-based protein profiling (ABPP) is a chemoproteomics platform to assess the functional state of enzymes in complex biological systems. Over the two decades, ABPP has emerged from a gel-based to gel-free platform, for in-depth proteome
