In vivo regulation of protein synthesis by phosphorylation of the alpha subunit of wheat eukaryotic initiation factor 2.

The regulation of protein synthesis is a critical component in the maintenance of cellular homeostasis. A major mechanism of translational control in response to diverse abiotic and biotic stress signals involves the phosphorylation of the alpha subunit of eukaryotic initiation factor 2 (eIF2alpha). The pathway has been demonstrated in all eukaryotes except… CONTINUE READING
