Alterations in pea root meristem proteins after butyrate exposure

Alterations in pea root meristem proteins after butyrate exposure

Phytochemistry (Oxford) 46(6): 991-995

One-dimensional PAGE has shown that butyrate upregulates two proteins of Mr 25 and 38 k in comparison with controls in pea roots. Two-dimensional electrophoresis further supported these results by displaying an increase of two groups of basic proteins, one group at Mr 24-26 k and the other group at about Mr 35 k. The eukaryotic cell cycle is controlled by a family of cyclin dependent kinases (CDKs), as well as many other regulatory proteins. Since the mode of action of these proteins and their interactions serve as regulators at various points in the cell cycle, butyrate may control gene expression and cell cycling.
