Abstract: Brassinosteroids (BRs) signals were perceived by the membrane receptor complex BRI1/BAK1 and transferred to nucleus through series proteins, resulting in the regulation of down-stream responsive genes. This review focuses on recent progresses in the studies of the BR signal transduction of Arabidopsis, and discusses the unsolved issues and key points of future studies.
