A mutation in Arabidopsis BSK5 encoding a brassinosteroid-signaling kinase protein affects responses to salinity and abscisic acid.

As the most recently characterized group of plant hormones, brassinosteroids (BR) are involved in a number of physiological responses. Although many key components of the BR signaling pathway have been isolated and characterized, there is little information on detailed characterization of brassinosteroid-signaling kinase (BSK) proteins. In this study… CONTINUE READING
