Receptor Trafficking in Plants

Part of the Signaling and Communication in Plants book series (SIGCOMM, volume 13)


Signalling through receptor-like kinases (RLKs) from the plasma membrane (PM) is important for cell-to-cell communication and for responding to environmental cues. RLKs not only reside at the PM but also localize to endosomes, and existing data provide good evidence that RLK signalling can occur from both locations. Constitutive as well as ligand-induced endocytosis of RLKs has been demonstrated, underlining the complexity of membrane trafficking pathways in plants for recycling RLKs back to the PM or targeting them for degradation.
