Glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK3)-like kinases play important roles in brassinosteroid (BR), abscisic acid, and auxin signaling to regulate many aspects of plant development and stress responses. The Arabidopsis thaliana GSK3-like kinase BR-INSENSITIVE 2 (BIN2) acts as a key negative regulator in the BR signaling pathway, but the mechanisms regulating BIN2(More)
Leaf erectness is key in determining plant architecture and yield, particularly in cereal crops. Brassinosteroids (BRs) play a unique role in controlling this trait in monocots, but the underlying cellular and molecular mechanisms remain big mysteries. Here we report that the abaxial sclerenchyma cell number of rice lamina joints (LJs) is closely related to(More)
Brassinosteroids (BRs) are plant-specific steroid hormones that control plant growth and development. Recent studies have identified key components of the BR signaling pathway in Arabidopsis thaliana and in rice (Oryza sativa); however, the mechanism of BR signaling in rice, especially downstream of GSK3/SHAGGY-like kinase (GSK2), remains unclear. Here, we(More)
