Abstract

© 2018 Elsevier Ltd A conserved PGGxGTxxE motif misleads the cytokinin (CK) converting LONELY GUY enzymes to be wrongly annotated as lysine decarboxylases (LDCs). However, so far PGGxGTxxE motif-containing LDCs do not show any LDC activity. Instead, they show phosphoribohydrolase activity by converting inactive CK nucleotides into active free-base forms to invoke CK responses.
