Integrators of Signal transduction pathways


Plants are equipped with the capacity to respond to a large number of diverse signals, both internal ones and those emanating from the environment, that are critical to their survival and adaption as sessile organisms.
These signals need to be integrated through highly structured intracellular networks to ensure coherent cellular responses. Further, signal interactions and signaling outputs vary significantly with developmental context.
While different hormones play predominant roles in growth promotion or stress responses, each hormone affects a wide range of developmental and physiological processes, and every developmental process is co-regulated by multiple hormones.
