Genome-wide association study of 107 phenotypes in Arabidopsis thaliana inbred lines
Susanna Atwell*, Yu S. Huang*, Bjarni J. Vilhjálmsson*, Glenda Willems*, Matthew Horton, Yan Li, Dazhe Meng, Alexander Platt, Aaron M. Tarone, Tina T. Hu, Rong Jiang, N. Wayan Muliyati, Xu Zhang,… Expand
A Putative Leucine-Rich Repeat Receptor Kinase Involved in Brassinosteroid Signal Transduction
Brassinosteroids are a class of growth-promoting regulators that play a key role throughout plant development. Despite their importance, nothing is known of the mechanism of action of these steroid… Expand
Activation tagging in Arabidopsis.
Activation tagging using T-DNA vectors that contain multimerized transcriptional enhancers from the cauliflower mosaic virus (CaMV) 35S gene has been applied to Arabidopsis plants. New… Expand
Signals from chloroplasts converge to regulate nuclear gene expression.
Plastid-to-nucleus retrograde signaling coordinates nuclear gene expression with chloroplast function and is essential for the photoautotrophic life-style of plants. Three retrograde signals have… Expand
BES1 Accumulates in the Nucleus in Response to Brassinosteroids to Regulate Gene Expression and Promote Stem Elongation
Plant steroid hormones, known as brassinosteroids (BRs), signal through a plasma membrane localized receptor kinase BRI1. We identified bes1, a semidominant suppressor of bri1, which exhibits… Expand
Activation tagging of the floral inducer FT.
FLOWERING LOCUS T (FT), which acts in parallel with the meristem-identity gene LEAFY (LFY) to induce flowering of Arabidopsis, was isolated by activation tagging. Like LFY, FT acts partially… Expand
Nuclear-localized BZR1 mediates brassinosteroid-induced growth and feedback suppression of brassinosteroid biosynthesis.
Plant steroid hormones, brassinosteroids (BRs), are perceived by a cell surface receptor kinase, BRI1, but how BR binding leads to regulation of gene expression in the nucleus is unknown. Here we… Expand
Rapid Synthesis of Auxin via a New Tryptophan-Dependent Pathway Is Required for Shade Avoidance in Plants
Plants grown at high densities perceive a decrease in the red to far-red (R:FR) ratio of incoming light, resulting from absorption of red light by canopy leaves and reflection of far-red light from… Expand
A role for flavin monooxygenase-like enzymes in auxin biosynthesis.
Although auxin is known to regulate many processes in plant development and has been studied for over a century, the mechanisms whereby plants produce it have remained elusive. Here we report the… Expand
A New Class of Transcription Factors Mediates Brassinosteroid-Regulated Gene Expression in Arabidopsis
Brassinosteroids (BRs) signal through a plasma membrane-localized receptor kinase to regulate plant growth and development. We showed previously that a novel protein, BES1, accumulates in the nucleus… Expand
