|Outline of Final Research Achievements
The so-called two-component system (TCS) is a paradigm of signal transduction. As has been well established in prokaryotes, the central to TCS is a histidine protein kinase (HK), which serves as a sensor (or receptor) for a certain environmental stimulus (e.g., EnvZ), and a HK phosphorylates its cognates response regulator (RR) (e.g., OmpR). To clarify the importance of TCS, here we focused on the circadian clock in the model plant, Arabidopsis thaliana.
