Abstract : The adaptation of plants to their environment requires tight regulation of metabolism and growth processes through central and highly connected signalling pathways. The signalling cascade involving the evolutionarily conserved Target of Rapamycin (TOR) represents just such a central regulatory hub, and research on this protein kinase in plants has progressed significantly during the past decade. TOR is now firmly established as a central player in plant responses to the availability of nutrients such as sugars, stresses including those from pathogens, and hormones. Moreover plant-specific targets and regulators have recently been identified. The reviews in this special issue explore the various facets of regulation exerted by this fascinating kinase as well as its potential for crop improvement.
