New Discoveries Offer Critical Information for Improving Crop Yield
Danforth Center research is addressing environmental issues related to production agriculture.
to additional proteins that are involved in the regulation of G-protein signaling pathways in plants, and added, to the regulation of nodule formation in legumes such as soybeans and yield enhancement by controlling seed size and seed number. They recently discovered the role of G-proteins in regulation of nodule, . This research was published in The Plant Cell titled “Phosphorylation-Dependent Regulation of G-Protein Cycle
