Summary
Depending on the environmental conditions, plants can rapidly alter their metabolism. Post-translational modification of proteins seems to play key roles during this adaptation. Reversible acetylation of lysine residues in proteins has recently emerged as post-translational modification controlling many important cellular functions beyond transcription. The identification of acetylation sites on metabolic enzymes in plants is a first step to uncover its physiological role in metabolism.
