What is Arabidopsis lyrata?

What is Arabidopsis lyrata?

Arabidopsis lyrata is a member of the mustard family of flowering plants, and is in the same genus as the widely used, and perhaps the best understood model plant Arabidopsis thaliana. A. thaliana was the first plant species from which a complete genome sequence of a single individual was obtained.

Why does A thaliana have smaller introns than Arabidopsis lyrata?

A. thaliana has smaller introns than Arabidopsis lyrata because of different indel dynamics in both species ( Wright et al., 2002 ).

What is the origin of allopolyploid Arabidopsis kamchatica?

Shimizu-Inatsugi R, Lihová J, Iwanaga H, Kudoh H, Marhold K, Savolainen O, Watanabe K, Yakubov VV, Shimizu KK. The allopolyploid Arabidopsis kamchatica originated from multiple individuals of Arabidopsis lyrata and Arabidopsis halleri. Mol Ecol. 2009;18:4024–4048. doi: 10.1111/j.1365-294X.2009.04329.x. [PubMed] [CrossRef] [Google Scholar]

Do Arabidopsis core complex subunits make unequal contributions to exosome function?

The available data suggest that individual subunits of the Arabidopsis core complex make unequal contributions to exosome function, or even to complex integrity [7,14].

Is there an isoform of cyp73 in Arabidopsis?

In Arabidopsis, there is only one isoform in the subfamily of CYP73 designated CYP73A5 (AtC4H, REF3, At2g30490) [64], [65]. Seeds of plants exhibiting a mutation in this gene ( ref3) exhibited reduced levels of proanthocyanidins in addition to reduced accumulation of wild-type levels of sinapoyl-malate and lignins [66].

Why study A lyrata thaliana (athaliana lyrata)?

A. thaliana was the first plant species from which a complete genome sequence of a single individual was obtained. The value of studying A. lyrata derives both from its close relation to A. thaliana, and from its unique biological properties.

How many flavonoids are in Arabidopsis thaliana?

In the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana, at least 54 flavonoid molecules (35 flavonols, 11 anthocyanins and 8 proanthocyanidins) are found. Scaffold structures of flavonoids in Arabidopsis are relatively simple. These include kaempferol, quercetin and isorhamnetin for flavonols, cyanidin for anthocyanins and epicatechin for proanthocyanidins.
