Abstract

The plant LIMs comprise two sub-families with one (DA1/DAR) and two (2LIM) LIM domains. This review comprehensively discussed the structure and potential role of this protein family in diverse area of plant biology. The description of first eukaryote lineage-specific plant LIM domain (LIN11, ISL1, and MEC3) proteins was observed in Helianthus long back. The successive study of LIM proteins in diverse plants has shown its vital relation to development, metabolism and defence. This nascent gene family has been worked out for their role in actin dynamics, organ size determination and transcription regulation. On grounds of protein architecture, two sub-families have been delineated as DA1/DAR (one LIM domain) and 2LIMs (two LIM domains). The genomic and expression study guides to the identification of diverse sub-categories. The significance of 2LIMs in regulation of actin dynamics leading to pollen growth and development has prospects to understand the plant reproductive behaviour. Interestingly, new facet of these LIMs as a transcriptional regulator in biological pathway/biosynthesis was also reported. Recently, the cumulative contribution of these features was also recognized for obtaining good quality fibre, thus giving translational outlook to this family. The DA1/DAR proteins are orchestrated with additional domains and provide a key role in regulation of organ size and tolerance to biotic and abiotic stress. This review will focus the journey of plant LIMs till date and will cover details of its structure, type, classification and functional relevance. This will provide insight to identify the potential of this gene family in the improvement of desired crop features.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 20 June 2017.
All research outputs
#8,766,176
of 11,389,380 outputs
Outputs from Planta
#1,315
of 1,692 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#174,301
of 263,582 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Planta
#16
of 34 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 11,389,380 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 19th percentile – i.e., 19% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,692 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.0. This one is in the 19th percentile – i.e., 19% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 263,582 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 27th percentile – i.e., 27% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 34 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 44th percentile – i.e., 44% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
