Abstrakt: Plants make use of "two-component systems" (TCSs) for signal transduction that are involved in many vital cellular processes such as responses to cytokinins, ethylene, red light and osmosensing. The TCS in plants incorporates three signaling elements: histidine kinases, histidine-containing phosphotransfer proteins and response regulators. Advances in high throughput sequencing technologies have led to a dramatic increase in the number of sequenced genomes and expressed sequence tags, and concomitantly to an increase in the TCS elements identified in different plant species. As there is no common agreement for the nomenclature of TCS elements in plants, this has led to a confusing and in part contradictory naming of newly identified genes of this pathway. The authors suggest general guidelines that could be applied to the nomenclature of TCS members from all plant species except for model systems Arabidopsis thaliana and Oryza sativa that have been grown historically and are well established.
