A maize insulin-like growth factor signals to a transduction pathway that regulates protein synthesis in maize.

Abstract

Insulin and insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) are well-characterized regulators in higher eukaryotic cells that control biological processes such as cell growth and survival, and selective translation of mRNAs. This research presents the purification of a 20 kDa protein, isolated from maize tissue, with IGF activity. The protein was purified from 48 h… (More)
