Monitoring autophagy in the model green microalga chlamydomonas reinhardtii [Article]
Autophagy is an intracellular catabolic system that delivers cytoplasmic constituents and organelles in the vacuole. This degradative process is mediated by a group of proteins coded by autophagy-related (ATG) genes that ...
Investigating the effect of target of rapamycin kinase inhibition on the Chlamydomonas reinhardtii phosphoproteome: from known homologs to new targets [Article]
(Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2019)
Target of rapamycin (TOR) kinase is a conserved regulator of cell growth whose activity is modulated in response to nutrients, energy and stress. Key proteins involved in the pathway are conserved in the model photosynthetic ...
An intermolecular disulfide-based light switch for chloroplast psbD gene expression in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii [Article]
(Taylor & Francis, 2012)
Expression of the chloroplast psbD gene encoding the D2 protein of the photosystem II reaction center is regulated by light. In the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, D2 synthesis requires a high-molecular-weight complex ...
Autophagic flux is required for the synthesis of triacylglycerols and ribosomal protein turnover in Chlamydomonas [Article]
(Company of Biologists, 2018)
Autophagy is an intracellular catabolic process that allows cells to recycle unneeded or damaged material to maintain cellular homeostasis. This highly dynamic process is characterized by the formation of double-membrane ...
The TOR Signaling Network in the Model Unicellular Green Alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii [Article]
Cell growth is tightly coupled to nutrient availability. The target of rapamycin (TOR) kinase transmits nutritional and environmental cues to the cellular growth machinery. TOR functions in two distinct multiprotein ...
