Keeping a lid on shoot regeneration: SIZ1 suppresses wound-induced developmental reprogramming

Michael J. Skelly ORCID ID: 0000-0002-9024-0037 Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences, School of Biological Sciences, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh EH9 3BF, United Kingdom M.Skelly@ed.ac.uk Plants have the remarkable ability to regenerate tissues and organs in response to wounding. This process relies on the formation of callus, a mass of unorganised cells that provides protection to […]

Ripened by Redox: Sulfoxidation of NOR Regulates Tomato Ripening
