Research Team from The College of Future Technology and HIST Reveals Molecular Mechanisms of Root Lignification

福建农林大学(英文版)   发布时间: 2022-07-20   信息员:

Recently, the FAFU research team led by Professor Wu Shuang from the College of Future Technology and Haixia Institute of Science and Technology (HIST) has published in Plant Physiology a paper titled “Brassinosteroid signaling restricts root lignification by antagonizing SHORT-ROOT function in Arabidopsis”, which clarifies that brassinosteroid (BR) signaling temporally plays a key role in inhibiting root lignification by antagonizing SHORT-ROOT, one of the key regulators.

Li Meng and Li Pengxue, doctoral students from the College of Life Sciences, and Wang Chunhua, a researcher who has finished the postdoctoral research programs, are the co-first author of the paper, with Professor Wu Shuang being the corresponding author. Professor Tang Wenqiang from Hebei Normal University, Professor Bai Mingyi from Shandong University and FAFU Professor Wang Wenfei have also contributed to the research. The research is funded by the National Natural Science Foundation of China and Provincial Natural Science Foundation of Fujian.
