limited number of accessions display the ability to survive a slow progressive flood (escape response) or a deep transient flash flood (quiescence response) (). (a) By amplifying the elongation of stem internodes, deepwater rice can outgrow a progressive flood and survive partial inundation for months. This deepwater escape strategy is controlled by the SNORKEL (SK) locus, which encodes two group VII ERFs, SK1 and SK2 SKs are absent from lowland varieties. (b) The molecular genetic analysis of the submergence-tolerant acces- sion FR13A revealed that the SUBMERGENCE 1 (SUB1) locus, encoding two or three group VII ERFs, regulates the quiescence response. SUB1B and SUB1C are invariably encoded at SUB1 in lowland accessions, whereas SUB1A is limited to some indica and Flash flood – Sub1 rice (SUB1A)

Genotypes possess either SK1/SK2, SUB1A or neither. Both SK1/SK2 and SUB1A-1 mRNA are ethylene induced. In deepwater rice, SK1/ SK2 and two minor QTLs augment accumulation of bioactive GA in stem internodes during submergence. In submergence tolerant rice varieties, the presence of SUB1A-1 influences submergence and post- submergence responses in aerial tissue. (1) SUB1A-1 mRNA is ethylene-induced but ultimately limits ethylene biosynthesis (2) SUB1A-1 promotes accumulation of two negative regulators of GA responses [SLENDER RICE 1 (SLR1) and SLENDER RICE-LIKE 1 (SLRL1)] . (3) SUB1A-1 does not perturb the submergence- induced decline in ABA content but heightens sensitivity to ABA . (4) SUB1A-1 limits induction of genes associated with starch breakdown . (5) SUB1A-1 enhances upregulation of genes associated with reactive oxygen species (ROS) amelioration and survival of dehydration, thereby improving re-establishment follow- ing de-submergence (6) SUB1A-1 interacts with a complex network of proteins . (7) SUB1A-1 transiently restricts the progression to flowering during submergence In summary, SUB1A is remarkably positioned to suspend growth and maintain cell viability during submergence and restore homeostasis during a subsequent recovery period.

As a result of oxidation, an arginine residue is added to the NH Transcription / translation transferase (ATE), targeting the protein for recognition by an N-recognin E3 ligase, leading to ubiquitination and 26S proteasome-mediated degradation. In Arabidopsis, the genes ATE1 and ATE2 encode the Arg transferases and at least one E3 ligase, encoded by PROTEOLYSIS 6 (PRT6), acts as an N-recognin of NH polypeptides .
The distinct conservation of the N terminus of group VII ERFs and the serendipitous observation that an Arabidop- sis prt6 mutant constitutively accumulates ADH1 and other hypoxia-responsive mRNAs in seeds led to the con- firmation that group VII ERFs are bona fide substrates of the N-end rule pathway in plants ( Additional support of this conclusion was obtained through in vitro and in planta analyses.
Anaerobic metabolism An in vitro system derived from rabbit reticulocytes and other responses was used to confirm that all five Arabidopsis group VII ERFs are N-end rule substrates. It was also shown that their instability required Cys as mutation of Cys stabilizing residue Ala 2 (NH2–Met1–Ala2) ceptibility to N-end rule turnover.

Årsmelding / Annual Report 2004 Bildet på omslaget illustrerer det katastro-fale jordkskjelvet ved Sumatra den 26. desember 2004. Skjelvet forårsaket en gigantisk flodbølge (tsunami) i det Indiske hav, og førte til tap av nær 300.000 men-neskeliv. The picture on the cover illustrates the catastrophic earthquake near Sumatra on 26 December 2004. This earthquake gen-erated a huge tsunami in the Indian Ocean, claiming nearly 300,000 human lives.
