Figures from this paper

Plant signalling peptides
TLDR
The plant signalling peptides discovered so far are involved in various processes and play an important role in communication between cells or organs, respectively and their role in intercellular signalling is focused on.
Activity of the plant peptide aglycin in mammalian systems
TLDR
The results indicate that aglycin has the potential to interfere with mammalian physiology as the voltage‐dependent anion‐selective channel protein 1.
Soybean ENOD40 encodes two peptides that bind to sucrose synthase
TLDR
It is suggested that ENOD40 peptides are involved in the control of sucrose use in nitrogen-fixing nodules and are directly translated from polycistronic eukaryotic mRNA.
Developing a model of plant hormone interactions
TLDR
A conceptual model about interactions among plant hormones is built so as to link and develop an understanding of the diverse functions of different plant hormones as a whole in plants.
Bio-active Peptides: Role in Plant Growth and Defense
TLDR
The molecular mechanisms of bio-active peptides in influencing plant stress relief, disease control, and nutrient assimilation efficiency and signaling routes are elaborated and a few advanced standpoints pertaining to optimal utilization of bio -active peptide in advancing agricultural productivity are also discussed.

TLDR
The discoveries of polypeptide signals for plant defense, growth, and development over the past decade have heralded the beginning of a new and growing field of polyPEptide signaling in plants, and the discussion of the relevant research areas emphasizes the biochemical and structural features ofpolypeptides and their receptors.
DVL, a novel class of small polypeptides: overexpression alters Arabidopsis development.
TLDR
The results show that the DVL family is a novel class of small polypeptides and the overexpression phenotypes suggest that these polypePTides may have a role in plant development.
Examination of Endogenous Peptides in Medicago truncatula Using Mass Spectrometry Imaging.
TLDR
This work analyzed the endogenous peptides and proteins in Medicago truncatula using matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI)-MSI, with interesting peptide spatial distribution changes observed between plants in different developmental stages.
Natural Bio-active Compounds: Volume 3: Biotechnology, Bioengineering, and Molecular Approaches
TLDR
The molecular mechanisms of bio-active peptides in influencing plant stress relief, disease control, and nutrient assimilation efficiency and signaling routes are elaborated and a few advanced standpoints pertaining to optimal utilization of bio -active peptide in advancing agricultural productivity are also discussed.
Expression of an anti apoptotic recombinant short peptide in mammalian cells
TLDR
This work demonstrates that ribosomes recognize short ORFs to translate stable short recombinant peptides in mammalian cells and expresses a short functional peptide that abrogates the apoptosis cascade through interference with the proteolytic activity of the initiator caspase 9 and the executing casp enzyme 3.

Production of multiple plant hormones from a single polyprotein precursor
TLDR
A polyprotein hormone precursor, present in tobacco plants, that gives rise to two polypeptide hormones, as often found in animals and yeast are described, showing that structurally diverse polypePTide hormones in different plant species can serve similar signalling roles.
A Polypeptide from Tomato Leaves Induces Wound-Inducible Proteinase Inhibitor Proteins
TLDR
It is established that a polypeptide factor can initiate signal transduction to regulate the synthesis of defensive proteins in plant tissues.
Systemin: a polypeptide signal for plant defensive genes.
TLDR
The signal transduction pathway that mediates systemin signaling involves linolenic acid release from membranes and subsequent conversion to jasmonic acid, a potent activator of defense gene transcription that leads to inflammatory and acute phase responses in animals.
Structure, expression, and antisense inhibition of the systemin precursor gene.
TLDR
Tomato plants transformed with an antisense prosystemin complementary DNA exhibited greatly suppressed systemic wound induction of proteinase Inhibitor I and II synthesis in leaves.

TLDR
The similarities between the defense signaling pathway in tomato leaves and those of thedefense signaling pathways of macrophages and mast cells of animals suggests that both the plant and animal pathways may have evolved from a common ancestral origin.
Proteinase inhibitor-inducing activity of the prohormone prosystemin resides exclusively in the C-terminal systemin domain.
TLDR
It is reported that prosystemin was found to be as biologically active as systemin when assayed for proteinase inhibitor induction in young tomato plants and nearly as active in the alkalinization response in Lycopersicon esculentum suspension-cultured cells.
Natriuretic Peptides—A New Class of Plant Hormone?
TLDR
The data are consistent with the presence of a biologically active NP system that, as in vertebrates, signals via cGMP dependent pathways and suggests that the NP system has a role in maintaining water and salt homeostasis in plants.
