The Membrane-bound Transcription Factor GmNTL1 Promotes Salt Tolerance in Soybean

Zhang et al. identified a membrane-bound NAC transcription factor GmNTL that can be oxidized and released from the endoplasmic reticulum to the nucleus, thereby regulating downstream target genes to promote salt tolerance in soybean.

NAC-CYP Mediates Soybean Nodule Senescence

Yu et al. show that activation of the expression of cysteine protease genes by GmNAC039 and GmNAC018 is required for soybean nodule senescence The Plant Cell (2023). https://doi.org/10.1093/plcell/koad129 By H Yu and Y Cao Background: Soybean (Glycine max) roots have nodules in which symbiotic…

Soybean ACBPs Sort out the Salt with Oxylipins

Lung et al. demonstrate that acyl-CoA-binding proteins initiate oxylipin signaling to help soybean adapt to the salty environment. The Plant Cell (2021) https://doi.org/10.1093/plcell/koab306 By Shiu-Cheung Lung and Mee-Len Chye, The University of Hong Kong, Pokfulam, Hong Kong, China Background:…
