Introduction of Research
Ubiquitination is one of the fundamental post-translational modifications with ubiquitin, a conserved 76-amino acid protein present in eukaryotes. Ubiquitin forms several type of poly-ubiquitin chains to regulate protein degradation and subcellular localization, which plays critical roles in plant growth regulation in response to multiple environmental stresses. We previously identified a membrane localized ubiquitin ligase ATL31 regulating plant adaptation to carbon/nitrogen nutrient stress and defense response to pathogen attack. We are investigating biochemical and physiological significances of ubiquitin signals in plant stress adaptation.
