A fluorophore has a characteristic lifetime Update on Methods and Techniques to Study Endocytosis in Plants 23 that can be influenced by changes in temperature, environment, calcium ion concentration, and the occurrence of FRET. Tobacco leaves transiently transformed with either GDP or GTP locked AtRabH1b proteins were used in this study. The co-expression of AtGRIP-GFP and mRFP-AtRab-H1b resulted in quenching of AtGRIP-GFP in the FRET experiment indicating direct protein– protein interaction. 6 Electron Microscopy and Electron Tomography Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) provided crucial information representing milestones in plant endocytosis research.
Cell Res 21:1711–1722 Chemical Effectors of Plant Endocytosis and Endomembrane Trafficking Ruixi Li, Natasha V. Raikhel and Glenn R. Hicks Abstract Plant endocytosis and endomembrane trafficking relies on the coordination of a highly organized and dynamic network of intracellular organelles. Membrane trafficking and associated signal transduction pathways provide critical cellular regulation of plant development and response to environmental stimuli. However, the efficiency of studies on this complex network has been hampered due to the rapid and dynamic nature of endomembrane trafficking as well as gene redundancy and embryonic lethality in mutagenesis-based strategies.
