Cadmium (Cd) is a harmful heavy metal that is risky for plant growth and human health. The zinc-finger transcription factor ZAT10 is highly conserved with ZAT6 and ZAT12, which are involved in Cd tolerance in plants. However, the definite function of ZAT10 in Cd tolerance remains uncertain. Here, we demonstrated that ZAT10 negatively regulated Cd u...

The UVR8 photoreceptor mediates plant responses to UV‐B wavelengths. The UVR8 dimer dissociates into monomers following UV‐B photoreception, a process accompanied by conformational changes that facilitate interaction of UVR8 with proteins that initiate responses. However, the importance of particular amino acids in maintaining UVR8 conformation and...

The photoreceptor UVR8 mediates numerous photomorphogenic responses of plants to UV‐B wavelengths by regulating transcription. Studies with purified UVR8 and seedlings not previously exposed to UV‐B have generated a model for UVR8 action in which dimeric UVR8 rapidly monomerises in response to UV‐B exposure to initiate signaling. However, the mecha...

The photoreceptor UVR8 has a pivotal role in mediating plant responses to UV-B wavelengths. Dimeric UVR8 dissociates into monomers following UV-B photoreception, and there is evidence that this process is accompanied by conformational changes that may facilitate interaction of UVR8 with other proteins to initiate signaling. Hence monitoring UVR8 di...
