Brassinosteroids review pdf

  • Brassinosteroids (BRs) are essential plant hormones regulating various developmental processes.
  • BRs show structures similar to animal steroidal hormones.
  • Brassinolide is the final product of the BR biosynthetic pathway and the most active BR.
  • BRs are perceived by transmembrane receptor complexes including the receptor BRI1 and co‐receptor BAK1.
  • BRs cannot be transported in a long distant manner.
  • BES1 and BZR1 are the critical downstream transcription factors regulating the expression of thousands of BR response genes.

In does of 20-60mg/kg bodyweight, a brassinosteroid found in mustard (28-Homobrassinolide, or 28-HB) was able to stimulate protein synthesis and concomitantly inhibit breakdown of muscle while increasing strength. The mode of adminstration was oral consumption via Akt phosphorylation, and the results were somewhat confounded with increases in food intake, although the magnitude of which is not causative of the differences seen in lean mass. [7] No binding to the Androgen Receptor (AR) was noted, and no changes in serum testosterone noted.
