Specificity and Crosstalk in Plant Signal Transduction (A4)


Organizer(s) Julian I. Schroeder, Mark A. Estelle and Masaki Furuya

Summary of Meeting:
Hormones, light, pathogens and abiotic stresses trigger signal transduction cascades that control growth, development and survival of plants. Interdisciplinary research is leading to identification of key components in plant signaling cascades, including novel receptors and transmission mechanisms. Furthermore, research is revealing that signal transduction pathways intersect and influence one another. The Keystone Symposium on Specificity and Cross Talk in Plant Signal Transduction will include talks on new reception and transduction mechanisms mediating specific signaling events and on new studies revealing how genes and protein complexes mediate cross talk among cascades. Revealing these mechanisms is essential for understanding plant growth and development and for developing new biotechnological applications. Speakers will present novel findings on growth hormone and defense signaling, stress responses and light signaling. An integrated understanding will be sought of which mechanisms mediate cross talk among pathways and which mechanisms allow specific modulation of plant growth and developmental responses.
