Cytokinin induces genome-wide binding of the type-B response regulator ARR10 to regulate growth and development in Arabidopsis ($)
Cytokinin, one of the major plant hormones, is involved in many aspectis of plant growth and development. Over the last few decades, the biosynthetic and signaling pathways have been discovered. The mechanistic explanation to control a myriad array of gene expression is still a black box. Zubo et al. used a GFP tagged version of the transcription factor ARR10 (ARABIDOPSIS RESPONSE REGULATOR 10), one of the major cytokinin signaling components, to do genome-wide ChIP-seq analysis to identify cytokinin-regulated target genes involved in plant growth, development, and stresses. This ChIP-seq dataset will be a valuable resource to study hormonal cross talk, developmental mechanisms, and stress responses and mediated through cytokinin.
