Understanding the adaptability of Smads

A study published in Nature Communications and led by Maria J Macias highlight new DNA motifs for the Smads proteins.

Scientists unveil a molecular mechanism that controls plant growth and development

Researchers at IRB and IBMB-CSIC, in Barcelona, and at the University of Wageningen, in the Netherlands, reveal how auxin hormone-regulated proteins activate developmental genes in plants.

Auxins are key components of plant growth and have many applications in agriculture. The biomedical application of these hormones are also being addressed.

The study is published this week in the scientific journal Cell.
