CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for The central role of glutamate and aspartate in the post-translational control of respiration and nitrogen assimilation in plant cells.

The assimilation of inorganic N, in the form of NH4+, into glutamine and glutamate via glutamine synthetase (GS) and glutamine oxoglutarate aminotransferase (GOGAT) is a pivotal metabolic process in plants. This is because glutamate and glutamine are the primary amino donors for the biosynthesis of ...

Cover for Glutamate dehydrogenase.

Glutamate dehydrogenase (GDH; EC.1.4.1.2) aminating activity unleashes a metabolic propulsion in crop plants that optimizes, maximizes and doubles the amino acid, protein, fatty acid, carbohydrate and dry matter yields per hectare. It is possible that the molecular biology of the enzyme may hold...

Cover for Nitrate and ammonium transporters in plants.

Many specific low affinity and high affinity membrane bound transport proteins have been reported to be involved in uptake, transport and remobilization of NO3- and NH4+-N, which are taken up by the plants from their rhizosphere. AtNRT1.1 and AtNRT2.1 are nitrate transporters which facilitate...
