Scientists uncover shared phosphoproteome linking remote plant species

Scientists uncover shared phosphoproteome linking remote plant species

Researchers at RIKEN and IAB Keio University have shown that even the most widely-varying species of plants share remarkable similarities in the composition of proteins in them that undergo phosphorylation, a regulatory mechanism involved in various cellular phenomena. A database released by the group, with information on over three thousand phosphorylated proteins and phosphorylation sites in rice, opens new doors in the study and engineering of plants.
