The SUCAST Catalogue




The Project

The SUCAST Catalogue contains over 3500 components, with around 2900 involved in several aspects of cell signalling and transcription. Extensive annotation, sequence comparisons and conserved protein domain analysis were used to cathegorize receptors, protein kinases, protein phosphatases, small GTPases, G-proteins, calcium and inositol metabolism proteins and other signal transductio-related proteins. Over 600 transcription factors were also indexed. Whenever possible the components were linked to putative pathways. The characterization of their expression profile in the different sugarcane tissues and in plants submitted to biotic and abiotic stress is underway.
