IRON MAN sequesters BTS to activate iron deficiency response (PNAS)

Plants need to maintain an optimum level of iron (Fe) for normal growth and development. Many Fe-responsive molecular players have been identified in Arabidopsis, including the IRON MAN (IMA) peptides. These peptides are induced by Fe deficiency, but their role in maintaining Fe homeostasis remains poorly understood. Li et al. provide a mechanistic insight into […]
