Mutational analysis of membrane traffic in Arabidopsis thaliana

Abstract:

To identify novel and essential components of the plant membrane trafficking mechanisms, Arabidopsis membrane trafficking mutants from fluorescent protein-based forward genetic screens were characterized. First, four novel glutathione synthase (GSH2) mutant alleles featured swollen endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-derived bodies that accumulated a soluble secretory marker. Consistent with the role of GSH2 in glutathione biosynthesis, the loss-of-function mutant alleles exhibited g...
