Figures from this paper

Brassinosteroid-insensitive-1 is a ubiquitously expressed leucine-rich repeat receptor serine/threonine kinase.
It is concluded that BRI1 is a ubiquitously expressed leucine-rich repeat receptor that plays a role in BR signaling through Ser/Thr phosphorylation.
Brassinosteroid Signaling Pathway
The emerging picture of BR signal transduction diverges radically from the paradigms of animal steroid signaling, which generally involve the action of members of the nuclear receptor superfamily.
Activation-tagged suppressors of a weak brassinosteroid receptor mutant.
It is discovered that the bri1-301 suppression effect in four atbs-D mutants (atbs3-D to atbs6-D) was caused by overexpression of a YUCCA gene thought to be involved in tryptophan-dependent auxin biosynthesis, which could lead to better understanding of the BR signaling process and the BR-auxin interaction.
The Arabidopsis Transthyretin-Like Protein Is a Potential Substrate of BRASSINOSTEROID-INSENSITIVE 1
It is hypothesized that TTL might directly regulate certain biochemical activities near the plasma membrane to control plant growth and promote plant growth through T-DNA insertional mutations in the TTL gene.
Interaction of Arabidopsis BRASSINOSTEROID-INSENSITIVE 1 receptor kinase with a homolog of mammalian TGF-beta receptor interacting protein.
Findings support a role for TRIP-1 in the molecular mechanisms of BR-regulated plant growth and development, possibly as a cytoplasmic substrate of the BRI1 receptor kinase.
Cell-Death Control by Receptor Kinases in Arabidopsis thaliana
This chapter will mainly discuss how BAK1 and BKK1 were identified as key regulators in controlling cell death, and the possible mechanisms involved in this process.
Recent Progress in Brassinosteroid Research: Hormone Perception and Signal Transduction
Downstream components of brassinosteroid action are largely unknown, research effort in last two years has led to the identification of a negative cytoplasmic regulator BIN2, a GSK3-like kinase.
Regulation of Brassinosteroid Signaling by a GSK3/SHAGGY-Like Kinase
It is shown that the Arabidopsis BRASSINOSTEROID-INSENSITIVE 2(BIN2) gene encodes a GSK3/SHAGGY-like kinase, which acts as a negative regulator to control steroid signaling in plants.
A Mutant Allele Uncouples the Brassinosteroid-Dependent and Independent Functions of BRASSINOSTEROID INSENSITIVE 11[OPEN]
A BRI1 mutant, bri1cnu4, is reported, which differentially affects canonical BR signaling and RLP44 function in the vasculature and highlights the complexity of plant plasma membrane receptor function and provides a tool to dissect BR signaling-related roles of BRI 1 from its noncanonical functions.
Plant receptor kinases: Systemin receptor identified
In this issue of PNAS, SR160, a tomato LRR-RLK, has been identified as the receptor for systemin, a peptide involved in systemic wounding signaling.


The Arabidopsis ERECTA gene encodes a putative receptor protein kinase with extracellular leucine-rich repeats.
The cloned ER gene encodes a putative receptor protein kinases, and the results suggest that cell-cell communication mediated by a receptor kinase has an important role in plant morphogenesis.

Three distinct receptor-like protein kinase (RLK) cDNA clones from Arabidopsis thaliana have now been identified and suggest that each plays a distinct and possibly important role in cellular signaling in plants.
A Role for Brassinosteroids in Light-Dependent Development of Arabidopsis
The Arabidopsis DET2 gene encodes a protein that shares significant sequence identity with mammalian steroid 5α-reductases, and brassinosteroids may constitute a distinct class of phytohormones with an important role in light-regulated development of higher plants.
A protein phosphatase 2C involved in ABA signal transduction in Arabidopsis thaliana.
The ABI1 gene encodes a protein with high similarity to protein serine or threonine phosphatases of type 2C with the novel feature of a putative Ca2+ binding site that could mediate pleiotropic hormone responses.
A Receptor Kinase-Like Protein Encoded by the Rice Disease Resistance Gene, Xa21
The sequence of the predicted protein, which carries both a leucine-rich repeat motif and a serine-threonine kinase-like domain, suggests a role in cell surface recognition of a pathogen ligand and subsequent activation of an intracellular defense response.
Arabidopsis ethylene-response gene ETR1: similarity of product to two-component regulators.
An early step in ethylene signal transduction in plants may involve transfer of phosphate as in prokaryotic two-component systems.
Identification of a Receptor-Like Protein Kinase Gene Rapidly Induced by Abscisic Acid, Dehydration, High Salt, and Cold Treatments in Arabidopsis thaliana
A cDNA clone for a receptor-like protein kinase gene (RPK1) was isolated from Arabidopsis thaliana and the dehydration-induced expression of the RPK1 gene is ABA-independent, suggesting that the gene is involved in a general stress response.
Conservation of function between mammalian and plant steroid 5α-reductases
It is shown that the DET2 protein, when expressed in human embryonic kidney 293 cells, catalyzes the 5 α-reduction of several animal steroid substrates and has similar kinetic properties to the mammalian steroid 5α-reductase enzymes.
