Whole Transcriptome Analysis of the Silicon Response of the Diatom Thalassiosira Pseudonana.
BMC Genomics. 2012 Sep 01; 13: 499.
Silicon plays important biological roles, but the mechanisms of cellular responses to silicon are poorly understood. We report the first analysis of cell cycle arrest and recovery from silicon starvation in the diatom Thalassiosira pseudonana using whole genome microarrays.
