Peptides and the Regulation of Plant Homeostasis

  title={Peptides and the Regulation of Plant Homeostasis},
  author={Chris Gehring and Helen R Irving},
Homeostasis defines the property of living organisms to keep a stable internal environment despite considerable external fluctuations, and this process is of considerable importance to plants as they are trapped unmoving in their changing surroundings. In addition to plant hormones, signaling peptides also have role(s) in maintaining plant homeostasis. Plant natriuretic peptides (PNPs) modulate ion channels and water uptake and have been implicated as compounds important in maintaining… CONTINUE READING
