Gamete Dialogs in Green Lineages.
Tokyo, Japan. In Mol Plant, Nov 2015
In particular, knowledge of gamete interaction in flowering plants and green algae has increased since the identification of the conserved gamete fusion factor generative cell specific 1/hapless 2 (GCS1/HAP2).
Sex is a ubiquitous, ancient, and inherent attribute of eukaryotic life.
Amsterdam, Netherlands. In Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, Aug 2015
We present results of phylogenetically extended searches for homologs of two proteins functioning in cell and nuclear fusion, respectively (HAP2 and GEX1), providing indirect evidence for these processes in several eukaryotic lineages where sex has not been observed yet.
Regulation of flowering in temperate cereals.
Davis, United States. In Curr Opin Plant Biol, 2009
VRN3 transcription is modulated through interactions involving CCT-domain proteins and HAP2/HAP3/HAP5 complexes coded by multiple genes.
A survey of 178 NF-Y binding CCAAT boxes.
Milano, Italy. In Nucleic Acids Res, 1998
Among the various DNA binding proteins that interact with this sequence, only NF-Y (CBF, HAP2/3/4/5) has been shown to absolutely require all 5 nt.
