The plant hormone auxin activates many early response genes that are thought to be responsible for diverse aspects of plant growth and development. It has been proposed that auxin signal transduction is mediated by a conserved signalling cascade consisting of three protein kinases: the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK), MAPK kinase (MAPKK) and MAPKK kinase (MAPKKK). Here we show that a specific plant MAPKKK, NPK1 (ref. 3), activates a MAPK cascade that leads to the suppression of early… CONTINUE READING
