Competitive binding of antagonistic peptides fine-tunes stomatal patterning.
Seattle, United States. In Nature, Jul 2015
Here we report in Arabidopsis that Stomagen (also called EPF-LIKE9) peptide, which promotes stomatal development, requires ERECTA (ER)-family receptor kinases and interferes with the inhibition of stomatal development by the EPIDERMAL PATTERNING FACTOR 2 (EPF2)-ER module.
pVHL's kryptonite: E2-EPF UCP.
Toronto, Canada. In Cancer Cell, 2006
E2-EPF ubiquitin carrier protein (UCP) is a member of an E2 family of enzymes that catalyzes the ligation of ubiquitin to proteins targeted for destruction by the proteasome.
