Abel, S. Auxin is surfacing ACS Chemical Biology 2, 380 - 384, (2007)

Indole-3-acetic acid (IAA or auxin) is essential throughout the life cycle of a plant. It controls diverse cellular processes, including gene expression. The hormone is perceived by a ubiquitin protein ligase (E3) and triggers the rapid destruction of repressors, called Aux/IAA proteins. The first structural model of a plant hormone receptor illustrates how auxin promotes Aux/IAA substrate recruitment by extending the hydrophobic protein-interaction surface. This work establishes a novel mechanism of E3 regulation by small molecules and promises a novel strategy for the treatment of human disorders associated with defective ubiquitin-dependent proteolysis.
