Regulation of cyclin-dependent kinases in Arabidopsis thaliana

Regulation of cyclin-dependent kinases in Arabidopsis thaliana In plants, different families of cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) and cyclins have been identified, indicating that also in plants the progression through the cell cycle is regulated by CDKs. In all eukaryotes, CDKs exert their activity through well-controlled phosphorylations of specific substrates on serine/threonine residues. Such post-translational modifications are universal mechanisms in signal transduction pathways. They allow the organism to differentiate, regulate growth and/or adapt to environmental changes, the latter being crucial for plants because of their sedentary life-style. This adaptation might explain the occurrence of a special CDK type with plant-specific features. This review focuses on the involvement of plant CDKs in different phases of the cell cycle in Arabidopsis thaliana and outlines their regulation by binding to other proteins, and by phosphorylation and dephosphorylation. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Plant Molecular Biology Springer Journals

Abstract

In plants, different families of cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) and cyclins have been identified, indicating that also in plants the progression through the cell cycle is regulated by CDKs. In all eukaryotes, CDKs exert their activity through well-controlled phosphorylations of specific substrates on serine/threonine residues. Such post-translational modifications are universal mechanisms in signal transduction pathways. They allow the organism to differentiate, regulate growth and/or adapt to environmental changes, the latter being crucial for plants because of their sedentary life-style. This adaptation might explain the occurrence of a special CDK type with plant-specific features. This review focuses on the involvement of plant CDKs in different phases of the cell cycle in Arabidopsis thaliana and outlines their regulation by binding to other proteins, and by phosphorylation and dephosphorylation.
