    • Role of WIP transcription factors in male flower formation


      An integrative genome-wide analysis reveals role of WIP transcription factors in male flower formation
      Flowers are the reproductive organs of angiosperms. The production of unisexual flowers and plants...



    • A new step towards understanding cytokinin action in symbiotic nodulation

      The plant hormone cytokinins regulate many developmental processes and environmental responses, including symbiotic nitrogen-fixing nodulation in legume plants. Cytokinin signalling activation recruits...

      New roles for an atypical MAPK module

      Mitogen Activated Protein Kinase (MAPK) modules are important plant signaling components involved in developmental processes as well as in responses to environment stresses. They are usually composed...



    • 13 PhD subjects for scholarships at IPS2!

      Each year the French government offers several hundreds of scholarships to pay the salaries of PhD students during years. These scholarships are attributed through a concourse organized by the Doctoral...



    • Not so (immuno)depressed these nodules!

      Some plants, including legume plants, are able to host mutualistic bacterial partners in symbiotic root nodules. This interaction gives rise to exchanges: the bacteria supply nitrogen to the plants, which...

      At the crossroads of systemic pathways regulating symbiotic nodulation

      The Compact Root Architecture 2 (CRA2) pathway promotes root competence for nodulation through the miR2111 systemic effector
      Nitrogen-deprived legume plants form new root organs, the nodules, following...



    • Systemic regulation of lateral root angle

      Systemic regulation of lateral root angle and root system architecture
      The CEP signaling peptide pathway controls from shoots the angle of lateral root formation and thus root system architecture
      Lateral...



    • Redox regulation of plant HDACs in response to climate change

      Kick-off REPHARE project : Redox regulation of plant HDACs in response to climate change
      Histone deacetylases (HDACs) are key epigenetic regulators but how their activity is regulated remains largely unknown...
