- n. A brassinosteroid that promotes cell elongation and division.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
To investigate if BiP3 overexpression affects signaling pathways mediated by other RKs, we investigated OsBRI1-mediated responses to brassinolide.
BiP3 overexpression does not affect the general rice defense response, cell death or brassinolide
The work also suggests that the seuss mutant may be more sensitive to the loss or reduction of brassinolide synthesis than are wild type plants.
Mapping and genetic complementation tests indicate that sum63 is allelic to CYP85A2 (AT3G30180) a cytochrome p450 enzyme that catalyzes the final steps in the synthesis of the phytohormone brassinolide.
Our identification of mutations in CYP85A2 as enhancers of the seuss mutant phenotype suggests a previously unrecognized role for brassinolide synthesis in gynoecial and ovule outer integument development.
