Differential inhibition of Arabidopsis methionine adenosyltransferases by protein S-nitrosylation.

In animals, protein S-nitrosylation, the covalent attachment of NO to the thiol group of cysteine residues, is an intensively investigated posttranslational modification, which regulates many different processes. A growing body of evidence suggests that this type of redox-based regulation mechanism plays a pivotal role in plants, too. Here we report the… CONTINUE READING
