[′bra·sən]
(biochemistry)
Any of a class of plant hormones characterized as long-chain fatty-acid esters; brassins act to induce both cell elongation and cell division in leaves and stems.

Our initial results indicate that ATH1 controls stem initiation by acting as a "gatekeeper" for two hormone signals that are known to promote stem growth: gibberellin and brassinosteroid. To test this idea, we propose to follow how ATH1 affects genes involved in signalling by these hormones.

Triadimefon, a fungicidal triazole-type P450 inhibitor, induces brassinosteroid deficiency-like phenotypes in plants and binds to DWF4 protein in the brassinosteroid biosynthesis pathway.

Two DEGs encoding "BRASSINOSTEROID INSENSITIVE1-associated receptor kinase 1-like receptors" showed significantly higher level of detected transcripts in G.935 than in B.9.
Most of the genes involved in hormone metabolism were associated with jasmonate, ethylene, auxin, brassinosteroid, and ABA biosynthesis pathways.
Brassinosteroid insensitive 1 (BRI1), acting as an essential component of the BR receptor, participates in stress response signaling through interactions with ligands and proteins that are involved in plant defense responses [63].

The result showed that the promoter sequence of CMYB1 contained many putative plant hormone-related cis-acting elements, such as ABA-responsive element (ABRE), auxin response element (AuxRE), brassinosteroid (BR) response element (BRRE), and ethylene response element factors (EREF), indicating that CMYB1 might be a central crosstalk of various plant hormones regulating plant growth and development.
