Fernandes de Melo et al., Fortaleza, Brazil. In Mitochondrion, 2014
A classification scheme based on protein phylogenies and sequence harmony method was used to clarify the taxonomic distribution and evolutionary history of the alternative oxidase (AOX) in angiosperms.
When normally grown plant was set as the control for each genotype, the transcripts of most COX family members, ATP synthase, AOX1b, and UCP are highly up-regulated in chilling-tolerant Zhefen No. 208 plants in contrast to the sensitive Zhefen No. 212 plants.
Hirai et al., Tokyo, Japan. In Genes Genet Syst, 2001
We investigated the expressions of genes for alternative oxidase (AOX1a, AOX1b, AOX1c and AOX2) and genes for cytochrome c oxidase (COX5b and COX6b) during germination of Arabidopsis thaliana, and examined oxygen uptakes of the alternative respiration and the cytochrome respiration in imbibed Arabidopsis seeds.
