About this Research Topic
Proteomics is a powerful research tool widely-used to decipher molecular responses during a plant’s life and to further our understanding beyond the level of transcriptional networks. Ranging from the identification of protein-protein interactions, to systems-wide dynamic changes in protein abundance and the identification of numerous post-translational modifications, proteome-wide analyses are a growing research field. Recently, diverse mass spectrometry-driven approaches haven been used to unravel signaling pathways, largely in the context of environmental perturbations. However, fewer publications are available in the context of plant development. Therefore, we believe that it is timely to create a Research Topic focused on the application of proteomics and mass spectrometry to plant developmental and hormonal responses.
This Research Topic welcomes Reviews, Mini-Reviews, Methods, and Original Research articles using mass spectrometry and proteomics that yield insight into developmental and hormonal signaling pathways. We would like to include crop plants as well as fundamental research using model species, and in depth analyses of protein-protein interactions with developmental regulators (from in planta co-immunoprecipitation), studies of post-translational modifications or even identification of precursor-derived peptides using mass spectrometry. Contributions from young investigators and early career scientists are particularly welcome.
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
