An importin-beta-like protein mediates lignin-modification-induced dwarfism in Arabidopsis

PLANT JOURNAL, 102(6), 1281–1293.

By: C. Panda n, X. Li n, A. Wager n, H. Chen n & X. Li n

author keywords: Arabidopsis thaliana; importin; lignin; MYB4; plant growth; ref8; suppressor mutant
MeSH headings : Adaptor Proteins, Signal Transducing / metabolism; Adaptor Proteins, Signal Transducing / physiology; Arabidopsis / genetics; Arabidopsis / growth & development; Arabidopsis / metabolism; Arabidopsis Proteins / metabolism; Arabidopsis Proteins / physiology; Cell Division; Gene Expression Regulation, Plant; Lignin / metabolism; Repressor Proteins / metabolism; Repressor Proteins / physiology; Transcription Factors / metabolism; Transcription Factors / physiology; beta Karyopherins / metabolism
TL;DR: It is shown that defects in both cell division and cell expansion underlie the dwarfism of an Arabidopsis lignin mutant ref8, and the identification of a GIR1 gene from a suppressor screen is reported, suggesting that the growth rescue effect of gir1 is likely due to compromised MYB4 transport and function.

2018 article

Exploiting natural variation for accelerating discoveries in plant specialized metabolism

Wager, A., & Li, X. (2018, February). PHYTOCHEMISTRY REVIEWS, Vol. 17, pp. 17–36.

By: A. Wager n & X. Li n

author keywords: Natural variation based discovery; Metabolite-gene association; Biosynthesis and regulation of specialized metabolites; Structure-function relationship; Ecology and evolution
TL;DR: Key discoveries that were catalyzed by taking advantage of naturally occurring variation are highlighted, and technologies and resources employed by this approach are commented on, in hopes of providing phytochemists an archetype for harnessing the power of natural variation to accelerate discoveries in plant specialized metabolism.
