PICLN modulates alternative splicing and light/temperature responses in plants
DELLA proteins regulate spore germination and reproductive development in Physcomitrium patens
Ever wondered about the functions of DELLA in moss? What is conserved and what not? You can now get all the answers , thanks to our collaboration with (U of Birmingham, UK) and (U of Freiburg, Germany).

BBX24 interacts with JAZ3 to promote growth by reducing DELLA activity in shade avoidance
Plants adapt to functuating temperatures in part through promoting alternative splicing. In collaboration with (Instituto Leloir, Buenos Aires, Argentina), we have found part of the mechanism. Read more .

DELLA proteins modulate the activity of dozens of transcription factors through direct physical interaction. we show that this molecular ability is conserved in all land plants, but in different lineages the ultimate functions are different (free access ).

DELLA functions evolved by rewiring of associated transcriptional networks
How do natural populations of plants adapt to water limitation? we show that they tend to be smaller: not only they lose less water in absolute values, but they are more efficient in water usage. Nice collaboration led by at UJI.

Plant hormones very often exert different functions in different organs, tissues or cell types. we review the basic mechanisms by which this spatial regulation is imposed and discuss several examples.

Spatial regulation of plant hormone action
We have been awarded three grants in the latest national AEI call. will lead a study on the characterization of meristem responses under drought stress; the participation of chaperone-like proteins during heat stress; and the evolution of light and temperature sensing in land plants.

Spatial regulation of thermomorphogenesis in plants
We start SPATHERM, a joint effort to study organ- and cell-type specific temperature responses in plants, funded by the . The team includes Maite Sanmartín, Cristina Úrbez, José León, Javier Agustí, David Alabadí and Miguel Blázquez, all at IBMCP. Postdoc applications accepted!!

Origin and evolution of the C3HDZ-ACL5-SACL regulatory module in land plants
Nitrate is absolutely necessary for plant productivity but it also causes lodging, with associated fruit losses. In collaboration with in Instituto Leloir (Argentina), we have found a mechanism for this excessive shoot growth. Read about it .

PIF4 enhances the expression of SAUR genes to promote growth in response to nitrate
Plants and microorganisms have a long-standing relationship. we review recent work that identifies how certain mechanisms for the recognition of microorganisms by plants were already present when plants colonized the land.
