Phosphorylation and negative regulation of CONSTITUTIVELY PHOTOMORPHOGENIC 1 by PINOID in Arabidopsis [Plant Biology]
CONSTITUTIVELY PHOTOMORPHOGENIC 1 (COP1) plays crucial roles in various cellular processes via its E3 ubiquitin ligase activity in organisms, ranging from fungi to humans. As a key component in regulating various biological events, COP1 itself is precisely controlled at multiple layers. Here, we report a negative regulator of COP1, PINOID (PID), which positively mediates photomorphogenic development. Specifically, PID genetically and physically interacts with COP1 and directly phosphorylates COP1 at Ser20. As a result, this posttranslational modification serves to repress COP1 activity and promote photomorphogenesis. Our findings signify a key regulatory mechanism for precisely maintaining COP1 activity, thereby ensuring appropriate development in plants.
Keeping up-to-date with research can feel impossible, with papers being published faster than you'll ever be able to read them. That's where Researcher comes in: we're simplifying discovery and making important discussions happen. With over 19,000 sources, including peer-reviewed journals, preprints, blogs, universities, podcasts and Live events across 10 research areas, you'll never miss what's important to you. It's like social media, but better. Oh, and we should mention - it's free.
Researcher displays publicly available abstracts and doesn’t host any full article content. If the content is open access, we will direct clicks from the abstracts to the publisher website and display the PDF copy on our platform.
