    • Branched-chain amino acid biosynthesis inhibitors: herbicide efficacy is associated with an induced carbon–nitrogen imbalance 

      Zabalza Aznárez, Ana Upna; Zulet González, Amaia Upna; Igal Díaz de Cerio, María Upna; Gil Monreal, Miriam Upna; Royuela Hernando, Mercedes Upna (Elsevier, 2013)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      Acetolactate synthase (ALS; EC 4.1.3.18) and ketol-acid reductoisomerase (KARI; EC 1.1.1.86) are two consecutive enzymes in the biosynthesis of branched-chain amino acids. Several commercial herbicides inhibit ALS as their ...
    • Impairment of carbon metabolism induced by the herbicide glyphosate 

      Orcaray Echeverría, Luis Upna; Zulet González, Amaia Upna; Zabalza Aznárez, Ana Upna; Royuela Hernando, Mercedes Upna (Elsevier, 2012)   Artículo / Artikulua  OpenAccess
      The herbicide glyphosate reduces plant growth and causes plant death by inhibiting the biosynthesis of aromatic amino acids. The objective of this work was to determine whether glyphosate-treated plants show a carbon ...
