- Research unveils clues about protein mechanism critical to plant growth and yield
- Scientists at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center have made several scientific discoveries demonstrating the significant roles Heterotrimeric G proteins play in plant development and yield.
- scientific discoveries demonstrating the significant roles Heterotrimeric G proteins play in plant, and collaborators showed that “G proteins” occur in a wide range of land plants and algae. This discovery was published in the October 2013 issue of Plant Physiology. “G proteins, alpha, beta and gamma, of G proteins on seed production and size were published in the September 2013 issue of Plant Biotechnology Journal.
The Pandey lab also showed that G proteins function in soybean roots to affect
- New Discoveries Offer Critical Information for Improving Crop Yield
- Danforth Center research is addressing environmental issues related to production agriculture.
- roles of Heterotrimeric G proteins in plant development, stress tolerance and yield improvement, reveal more information about how G proteins evolved and provide clues to their role in regulating plant growth and abiotic stress response.
Heterotrimeric G-proteins are present in all, and colleagues were first to discover G-protein in green algae, confirming that the proteins existed early, at Washington University in St. Louis, they discovered that G proteins are essential for the life

- conserved proteins, the heterotrimeric G-proteins and a plant hormone abscisic acid (ABA, SIGNALING AND PLANT ADAPTIVE RESPONSES
Heterotrimeric G-proteins (referred to as G-proteins hereafter) consisting of Gα, Gβ and Gγ subunits and the Regulator of G-protein Signaling (RGS) proteins, . In plants, G-proteins integrate a wide range of signals related to multiple hormones, environmental, and size, nodulation and abiotic stress responses. However, the mechanistic details of how G-proteins

ST. LOUIS, MO, April 20, 2011— The most elaborate heterotrimeric G-protein network known to date in the plant kingdom has been identified by Dr. Sona Pa ...

G-proteins, was previously assumed.
Mammals have many G-proteins. These proteins bind GTP (small molecules) and hydrolyze it to GDP. The G-proteins are active only when GTP bound. Binding is a key process because that is when the signaling can occur. Mammals’ G-proteins are very quick to hydrolyze bound GTP, demonstrated that soybean has two types of G-proteins, two that hydrolyze GTP slowly and two that work

- . This process is known to turn certain signaling pathways on and off in regulating G-protein mediated signaling. G-proteins are key signaling proteins and are responsible for controlling important, , yield and productivity. How G-proteins work is well described in humans, but remains relatively unclear, biochemical reactions. This research inspired Jenny to explore other possible ways G-proteins regulate, hypothesized that phosphorylation of G-proteins could be one of the mechanisms plants use to combat
