98 The effect of mezquite pod flour in a wheat-based diet on broiler chicken growth performance (2021)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Bone, G., Parr, T., Brameld, J., Elmes, M., Gonzalez-Carranza, Z., & Koech, O. (2021). 98 The effect of mezquite pod flour in a wheat-based diet on broiler chicken growth performance. Animal - Science proceedings, 12(1), 77. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.anscip.2021.03.099

Application Inclusion of Mezquite pod flour in broiler chicken diets significantly reduced weight gain, this could inform a recommendation against the use of non-processed Mezquite in broiler chicken diets. Introduction Mezquite is an under-utilised... Read More about 98 The effect of mezquite pod flour in a wheat-based diet on broiler chicken growth performance.

F-box proteins in plants (2019)
Journal Article
Zhang, X., Gonzalez-Carranza, Z. H., Zhang, S., Miao, Y., Liu, J., & Roberts, J. A. (2019). F-box proteins in plants. Annual Plant Reviews Online, 2(1), 307-328. https://doi.org/10.1002/9781119312994.apr0701

The F-box domain containing protein is one of the super protein families in Eukaryotic cells including yeast, plant and mammals. For example, the model plant Arabidopsis and Medicago genomes contain nearly 700 and 1000 F-box protein encoding genes re... Read More about F-box proteins in plants.

HAWAIIAN SKIRT, and F-box gene from Arabidopsis, is a new player in the microRNA pathway (2018)
Presentation / Conference Contribution
Zhang, X., Jayaweera, D., Peters, J. L., Szecsi, J., Bendahmane, M., Roberts, J. A., & González-Carranza, Z. H. (2018). HAWAIIAN SKIRT, and F-box gene from Arabidopsis, is a new player in the microRNA pathway.

F-box proteins belong to a multi-protein E3 ubiquitin ligase complex (SCF) that target proteins for degradation via the proteasome.We demonstrated that HAWAIIAN SKIRT(HWS), an Arabidopsis ubiquitin protein ligase (SCFHWS), regulates organ growth, flo...

The Arabidopsis thaliana F-box gene HAWAIIAN SKIRT is a new player in the microRNA pathway (2017)
Journal Article
Zhang, X., Jayaweera, D., Peters, J. L., Szecsi, J., Bendahmane, M., Roberts, J. A., & Gonzalez-Carranza, Z. H. (2017). The Arabidopsis thaliana F-box gene HAWAIIAN SKIRT is a new player in the microRNA pathway. PLoS ONE, 12(12), Article e0189788. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0189788

In Arabidopsis, the F-box HAWAIIAN SKIRT (HWS) protein is important for organ growth. Loss of function of HWS exhibits pleiotropic phenotypes including sepal fusion. To dissect the HWS role, we EMS-mutagenized hws-1 seeds and screened for mutations t... Read More about The Arabidopsis thaliana F-box gene HAWAIIAN SKIRT is a new player in the microRNA pathway.

HAWAIIAN SKIRT controls size and floral organ number by modulating CUC1 and CUC2 expression (2017)
Journal Article
Gonzalez-Carranza, Z. H., Zhang, X., Peters, J. L., Boltz, V., Szecsi, J., Bendahmane, M., & Roberts, J. A. (2017). HAWAIIAN SKIRT controls size and floral organ number by modulating CUC1 and CUC2 expression. PLoS ONE, 12(9), Article e0185106. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0185106

The Arabidopsis thaliana F-box gene HAWAIIAN SKIRT (HWS) affects organ growth and the timing of floral organ abscission. The loss-of-function hws-1 mutant exhibits fused sepals and increased organ size. To understand the molecular mechanisms of HWS d...

Decreased photosynthesis in the erect panicle 3 (ep3) mutant of rice is associated with reduced stomatal conductance and attenuated guard cell development (2015)
Journal Article
Yu, H., Murchie, E. H., Gonzalez-Carranza, Z. H., Pyke, K. A., & Roberts, J. A. (2015). Decreased photosynthesis in the erect panicle 3 (ep3) mutant of rice is associated with reduced stomatal conductance and attenuated guard cell development. Journal of Experimental Botany, 66(5), 1543-1552. https://doi.org/10.1093/jxb/eru525

The ERECT PANICLE 3 gene of rice encodes a peptide that exhibits more than 50% sequence identity with the Arabidopsis F-box protein HAWAIIAN SKIRT (HWS). Ectopic expression of the Os02g15950 coding sequence, driven by the HWS (At3g61950) promoter, re...
