Intrinsic and extrinsic regulators of Aux/IAA protein degradation dynamics.
The plant hormone auxin acts through regulated degradation of Auxin/INDOLE-3-ACETIC ACID (Aux/IAA) proteins to regulate transcriptional events. In this review, we examine the composition and function of each Aux/IAA structural motif. We then focus on recent characterization of Aux/IAA N-terminal disordered regions, formation of secondary structure within these disordered regions, and post-translational modifications (PTMs) that affect Aux/IAA function and stability. We propose how structural variations between Aux/IAA family members may be tuned for differential transcriptional repression and degradation dynamics.
