Research Sheds Light on Plant Signaling

A study conducted by researchers from The Sainsbury Laboratory, the
University of Zurich, and the University of Washington has identified the
mechanisms by which a common plant co-receptor can regulate many different
signaling pathways through protein phosphorylation that the researchers call
a 'phosphocode'.

Cell-surface receptors are important to plants for their survival. To
activate receptor kinases-components of dynamic protein complexes that
perceive and respond to molecular signals from outside the cell to control
all aspects of plant life-shape-complementary co-receptors are recruited in
response to specific stimuli.

Professor Cyril Zipfel, Chair of Molecular & Cellular Plant Physiology at
the University of Zurich said their study furthers understanding of one of
the best-characterized plant co-receptors. Professor Zipfel added that they
now have an increased understanding of the key functions that control plant
immunity, growth, and development.
