Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Type 2C protein phosphatases (PP2Cs) form a structurally unique class of Mg(2+) -/Mn(2+) -dependent enzymes. PP2Cs are evolutionary conserved from prokaryotes to higher eukaryotes and play a prominent role in stress signalling. In this review, we will focus on evolution, function and regulation of the plant PP2Cs. Members of a subclass of plant PP2Cs counteract mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathways, while members of other subfamilies function as co-receptors for the phytohormone abscisic acid (ABA). Recent structural analyses of ABA receptors have elucidated the mode of ligand-dependent regulation and substrate targeting.
