Shedding light on a shadow: two transcriptional enhancers control florigen’s response to photoperiod

5. März 2019
In many plant species, flowering is controlled by day length through the transcriptional regulation of a key gene called FLOWERING LOCUS T (FT) in the model plant Thale cress (Arabidopsis thaliana). The Turck group at the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research (Cologne, Germany) has used an epigenetic approach to systematically probe regions surrounding the FT locus for a regulatory role in FT expression. As they now report in Nature Plants (doi 10.1038/s41477-019-0375-2), FT’s response to long days requires the presence of both, a previously characterized distal enhancer located in the promoter and the support of its “shadow” enhancer located downstream of the gene.

Linking sensing to signaling during plant immunity

15. Februar 2019
A new study by researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research (MPIPZ) in Cologne has revealed that a previously unappreciated structural feature underlies the ability of the plant immune molecule EDS1 to provide a timely defense boost against pathogens. [mehr]

Leaf age determines the division of labor in plant stress responses

21. Januar 2019

A new study from researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research published in the journal PNAS shows that the crosstalk between plant responses to physical and biological stresses varies between young and old leaves to enable optimal plant performance when the two kinds of stress are encountered simultaneously.
