Recently, the research group led by Professor Wang Zhiyong and Professor Wang Wenpei of Basic Forestry and Proteomics Research Center of the Cross-strait Joint Research Institute published a review article entitled “Information integration and communication in plant growth regulation” in the international academic journal 《Cell》 (impact factor=32). FAFU was the research unit of the first author. The first author and second author were Dr. Juthamas Chaiwanon and Professor Wang Wenpei, respectively, of the Cross-strait Joint Research Institute; the corresponding author was Professor Wang Zhiyong.

The paper completely reviewed the research progress on how the light and hormone signals jointly regulate the cell growth, and how the core transcription factor complex consisting of BZR1、ARFs、PIFs and DELLA protein(BAP/D) responds to internal hormone signals, nutritional status and external environmental signals. The paper also reviewed the response mechanism of plant  during its growth and defense process, the interaction mechanism between light and hormone signals in the overshadow environment and the complex network of nutrient metabolism and hormone regulation in plant roots. The article integrated the research progress in various aspects of  plant growth and development  and demonstrated that, the regulation of plant growth and development was not a simple regulation mode such as one point or one line, but was a three-dimensional regulative network. The paper presents a more accurate view on the process of plant growth and development, and is of value for guiding the future research and promoting the application of basic research to agriculture.
