Seed Studio Grand Opening

Date/dates: 01/08/2015 – 15/08/2015
Time: 12:00 am – 4:00 pm

The grand opening is on the 1st August at 12 noon. Seed Studio is a community ART project to collect, save and share seed to those in need who need help to grow their own fresh food. We are looking for donations in SEED, GLASS JARS and MONEY. So please visit our Pozible project http://www.pozible.com/project/196267. The seed collection will have permeant base in my studio where it will be open on weekends for visits. It also be on the road visiting community events with our mobile seed bank. We are happy to send seed by mail to those who live remotely or are unable to access our events.
The seed is free but I would love an exchange of stories, memories, drawings, produce, seed, found objects from your vegetable patch! These are the seeds for my art.
So come and visit if you can, message us online, send an email or even mail a letter!
cheers

Abstract

Abscisic acid (ABA) regulates many aspects of plant development, including seed dormancy and germination, root growth and stomatal closure. Plant SKP1 proteins are subunits of the SCF complex E3 ligases, which regulate several phytohormone signalling pathways through protein degradation. However, little is known about SKP1 proteins participating in ABA signalling. Here, we report that the overexpression of Triticum aestivum SKP1-like 1 (TSK1) in Arabidopsis thaliana (Arabidopsis) resulted in delayed seed germination and hypersensitivity to ABA. The opening of stomatal guard cells and the transcription of several ABA-responsive genes were affected in transgenic plants. In contrast, Arabidopsis skp1-like 1 (ask1)/ask1 ASK2/ask2 seedlings exhibited reduced ABA sensitivity. Furthermore, the transcription of ASK1 and ASK2 was down-regulated in abi1-1 and abi5-1 mutants compared with that in wild type. ASK1 or ASK2 overexpression could rescue or partially rescue the ABA insensitivity of abi5-1 mutants, respectively. Our work demonstrates that SKP1 is involved in ABA signalling and that SKP1-like genes may positively regulate ABA signalling by SCF-mediated protein degradation.
