WRKY1 integrates cellular nitrogen and light-energy resources in arabidopsis thaliana

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate

Abstract

WRKY1 is a member of the WRKY transcription factor family initially identified with roles in defense, but more recently it was shown to have diverse functions (Ülker and Somssich, 2004). The Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) WRKY1 transcription factor has been implicated in nutrient signaling, where its expression has been reported to be repressed by organic nitrogen treatment (Gutiérrez et al., 2008) and activated by nitrogen starvation (Krapp et al., 2011). Furthermore, Arabidopsis WRKY1 was among the genes regulated by light in a whole-transcriptome analysis of Arabidopsis that indicated that 35% of the genome is controlled by either light, nitrogen, or a combination of light and nitrogen signaling (Krouk et al., 2009).
