Autophosphorylation of Tyr-610 in the Receptor Kinase BAK1 Plays a Role in Brassinosteroid Signaling and Basal Defense Gene Expression

Oh, M.h., et al., 107(41), 17827-17832, Proc Nat Acad Sci USA, 2010

The authors study the role of a Tyrosine amino acid on BAK1 kinase protein's function in signaling. Plants contain a large family of receptor-like kinases that are thought to control many aspects of plant growth and development. Octet QK system data were used to show the presence of a binding interaction between wild-type and mutant BAK1 and BRI1 proteins and to measure their binding affinities.
