Deubiquitinating enzymes UBP12, 13 are antagonistic to E3 ligases BIG BROTHER and DA2 (eLIFE)

Post-translation modifications like ubiquitination and deubiquitination are important to maintain protein homeostasis and in turn plant growth. DA1, and DA1-RELATED PROTEIN 1, 2 (DAR1, DAR2) are latent peptidases activated upon ubiquitination by E3 ligases BIG BROTHER (BB) and DA2. In this paper, Vanhaeren et al. identified UBIQUITIN BINDING PROTEIN 12, 13 (UBP12, 13) as the […]

Integration of light signaling with endogenous developmental pathway to regulate flowering (Mol. Plant)

Response to changing environmental conditions is key for plant reproductive success. Previous studies have implicated FAR-RED ELONGATED HYPOCOTYL3 (FHY3) and FAR-RED IMPAIRED RESPONSE1 (FAR1) as inhibitors of flowering in phytochrome A signaling pathway. miR156-targeted SQUAMOSA PROMOTER BINDING PROTEIN LIKE (SPL) genes are involved in transition from juvenile to adult phase and promote flowering. In this […]
