Summary
Protein modifiers are small proteins that can be covalently attached to substrate proteins. The resulting change can influence the function of the substrate protein and can thereby play a role in cellular information transfer. Attachment of modifiers is part of many developmental processes in plants, including flower induction, which depends on an interplay between a genetic program and environmental input parameters for optimal timing and execution.
