Intramembrane proteases control many important processes in a wide variety of organisms through regulated intramembrane proteolysis (RIP). However, very few intramembrane proteases have been characterized in plants. Intriguingly, EGY2 in Arabidopsis belongs to the Site-2 protease (S2P) family that performs RIP. It contains the conserved catalytic motifs,(More)
S-Adenosylmethionine synthetase (AdoMetS) catalyzes the formation of S-Adenosylmethionine (AdoMet), the major methyl group donor in cells. AdoMet-mediated methylation of DNA is known to have regulatory effects on DNA transcription and chromosome structure. Transcription of environmental-responsive genes was demonstrated to be mediated via DNA methylation in(More)
