Abstract

In humans, heterotrimeric G proteins couple stimulus perception by G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) with numerous downstream effectors. By contrast, despite great complexity in their signal-transduction attributes, plants have a simpler repertoire of G-signalling components. Nonetheless, recent studies on Arabidopsis thaliana have shown the importance of plant G-protein signalling in such fundamental processes as cell proliferation, hormone perception and ion-channel regulation.
