CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Amino acids and peptides as mediators of abiotic stress tolerance in higher plants.

This chapter discusses the role of amino acids and peptides in mediating abiotic stress tolerance in higher plants. The pathways involved in plant responses to abiotic stress (such as salinity, ambient temperature, drought, acid rain, anoxia and heavy metal contamination) are highly complex,...

Cover for Mycotoxins.

Mycotoxins induce adverse effects in humans and other vertebrate animals. Their production is determined by ecological and environmental factors (temperature, humidity and substrate water activity). The preponderance of specialized fungi in particular niches determines the type and range of...

Cover for Pathways of utilization of D-amino acids in higher organisms.

Although an integral part of the peptidoglycan structure of bacteria, D-amino acids are ubiquitous in higher organisms by virtue of endogenous synthesis and symbiotic microbial activity. The occurrence of D-alanine, D-aspartate and D-glutamate in higher organisms is now well documented. Distinct...

Cover for The role of nitric oxide signalling in yeast stress response and cell death.

Nitric oxide (NO) is a small gaseous molecule and free radical with important and distinct roles in diverse physiological functions in biological systems. The relevance of NO as a signalling molecule is well known, particularly in neurons as a neurotransmitter, in blood vessels as a regulator of...

Cover for Histidine degradation in bacteria.

The ability to degrade histidine is both broadly distributed and highly conserved within the bacterial kingdom. In many cases, the complete catabolism of histidine to glutamate, ammonia and either formate or formamide allows the use of histidine as a carbon source, nitrogen source, or both. In some ...

Cover for The histidine phosphatase superfamily in pathogenic bacteria.

The histidine phosphatase superfamily is a large group of proteins whose functions are based on the phosphorylation of a histidine residue during catalysis. Apart from a few exceptions, they share a signature arginine, histidine, glycine (RHG) near the N-terminal. They are found in both eukaryotes...

Cover for Polyamines in plants: biosynthesis from arginine, and metabolic, physiological and stress-response roles.

Biogenic amines affect a myriad of growth and developmental processes in all organisms, including plants. Therefore, there is continued interest in understanding the biosynthesis and functional roles of polyamines in regulating plant metabolism, physiology and development. The role of polyamines in ...

Cover for Cysteine homeostasis.

In plant metabolism, cysteine is the first reduced sulfur donor molecule, and it constitutes the metabolic precursor of essential biomolecules, such as vitamins, cofactors, antioxidants and many defence compounds, that are formed in response to adverse environmental conditions in which the sulfur...

Cover for Cellular adaptation to amino acid availability: mechanisms involved in the regulation of gene expression.

In mammals, the impact of nutrients on gene expression has become an important area of research. Nevertheless, the current understanding of amino acid-dependent control of gene expression is limited. Amino acids have multiple and important roles, so their homeostasis has to be finely maintained....
