Characterization of TCTP, the translationally controlled tumor protein, from Arabidopsis thaliana

Berkowitz, Oliver; Jost, Ricarda; Pollmann, Stephan; Masle, Josette


The translationally controlled tumor protein (TCTP) is an important component of the TOR (target of rapamycin) signaling pathway, the major regulator of cell growth in animals and fungi. TCTP acts as the guanine nucleotide exchange factor of the Ras GTPase Rheb that controls TOR activity in Drosophila melanogaster. We therefore examined the role of Arabidopsis thaliana TCTP in planta. Plant TCTPs exhibit distinct sequence differences from nonplant homologs but share the key GTPase binding...[Show more]
