Dipeptides to the rescue – How small molecules help plants cope with stress

A team of scientists led by Dr. Aleksandra Skirycz, until recently a group leader at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology, now a professor at the Boyce Thompson Institute (BTI) in the USA, has investigated and described in a recent study a novel regulatory small molecule that improves plant tolerance to environmental stress (Moreno et al., 2021, EMBO Journal).
