Gibberellin signaling

Curr Opin Plant Biol. 1998 Oct;1(5):440-6. doi: 10.1016/s1369-5266(98)80270-7.


Recent findings provide insights into the gibberellin signaling system in plants. Genes for gibberellin biosynthetic enzymes have been cloned, and an emerging theme is that gibberellin biosynthesis is negatively regulated by gibberellin responses. Mutants defective in gibberellin signaling have been analyzed, and an important finding is that gibberellin represses growth inhibition. The list of intracellular gibberellin signal-transduction elements has been expanded to include G-proteins and protein kinases.
