Defining Adaptive Stress Response Pathways
by Lemos, Mark Shawn, Ph.D., University of California, Davis, 2018, 121; 10826995
Abstract (Summary)

Plants have evolved tightly controlled signaling networks to respond and adapt to prevailing environmental perturbations. Stress causes perturbations in various organelles generating signals that are integrated into appropriate transduction pathways required for cellular homeostasis and hence optimal adaptive responses. In this work, a multipronged approach was employed to elucidate the molecular mechanisms controlling adaptive responses in plants, with a focus on regulatory components of the mitochondria and chloroplast.
